Take a look at the last paragraph...
Non-programmer looking for something fun to pick up and do. Came here from the Kickstarter for the Omega2 which I want to turn into a wifi garage door opener. The reason I want to do that is I tend to forget sometimes whether or not I closed it. I put a camera in the garage and can now see if I did, but it doesnt help if I left it open but am not able to get back. Looking to use IFTTT and the DO app to control it from anywhere. Cant wait to get the unit.

RE: Onion Omega Enclosure Box
Here are some enclosures I have found. I have used 2 of them, myself.
I dont have a printer, or print enough to warrant buying one, so I use Shapeways to print mine. Just upload the files and choose the material, they do the rest. Turn around time is pretty quick, too.
RE: Cannot connect to Wifi to setup Omega2 Plus (Unmatched double quote ?)
You may need to change the wifi password on the router.
@MARK-HOSKEN There are a few people who have created some drawings already. I have printed out a couple for the expansion board and Omega2
This is the one I have printed up for the expansion board.
I may get one of these for the minidock
I have used https://www.shapeways.com with great success. I dont know anyone locally who has a printer.
RE: Unable to successfully change password...
@Brad-Buskey That isn't the point, I know I can do that, but shouldn't the GUI Settings manager work??
At what point do you stop banging your head against a wall and wipe up the blood from your forehead.
It is not a secret that the web-based console rarely works right. There are plenty of threads complaining about it. The command line always works. That includes for setting the name, wifi info, AP info, and so on.
Now, if you want to go into the web source and fix it, then by all means do so, and share the results. If all you wanted was to change the password, why the hell are you bitching when a solution is given to do exactly what you wanted?
RE: Which to buy??
There are actually more than that.
Mini dock only allows the O2 to get power, it has no pinouts. It also allows a Serial connection, great for troubleshooting
Expansion Dock allows for the different expansion boards as well as having access to all of the pinouts. It also allows a Serial connection, great for troubleshooting.
Power Dock adds the ability to charge a battery and use it for power on top of the normal power via micro-USB. However it takes away the Serial connection ability. It also has the pinouts ready to use.
Arduino takes the Expansion Dock and adds the ability to connect and use the different boards/expansions for Arduino boards and hats.
I have the first three, and each has their uses. I like the expansion dock for building the OS and configuring and testing the expansions.
The power dock I use for a webcam/security cam as it will keep broadcasting even if the power goes out. (My modem and router are also on battery backup).
The minidock I use to just carry one around with me for tinkering. I have 3 O2's and each has their own dock.
