    WiFi device with IP address

      Looking for a component to create a very simple WiFi based solution.


      Problem Description: Monitor if a device is powered on by monitoring its IP address, communicated over the local WiFi network


      Possible Solution Scenario:

      • When a device power source is "present"/"on", a simple WiFi module will turn on and connect to a predefined WiFi SSID.
      • The WiFi module will have an IP address (either pre-set or received via DHCP).
      • One can ping WiFi module IP address to conclude if the device is on or off


      The WiFi component shall be as simple as posible. No much programming, no commercial monthly fees for wireless < -- > cloud services

      I just don't know enough about the product line to find the simplest device that fits the requirements


      Thank you in advance
