Recently i came about the idea of adding Sound to meow! because no one besides of me would ever know how to set up meow!
To get it fully working i added a callback to the fauxmoESP Library to see if meow! is discovered and to play the right sound file.
The Steps are:
1. Welcome and Instructions
2. Setup complete - Trying to connect to the WiFi.
3. WiFi connected
4. Trying to help the User, saying "Alexa, search Smarthome-Devices"
5. If No 4 fails, Instruct the User what to do.
6. Setup complete + Instructions what the URL is and that there is also a Touch Button on the meow! Surface.
Sorry Guys, it's currently only in German, but I want to add English in the near future. I thought about checking the Geo-location via IP and after that "meow!" will decide which language to use.
Later (after Setup) in the Settings Menu you could change the Interface and spoken language.
Maybe I will add "meowish" to it as Easter-egg. ;-)
See it in Action (Speaker ON!):

I used WiFi Manager to implement the WiFi Credentials Setup to meow!
meow! looks if the already saved WiFi Credentials are matching the current available WiFi Network and will connect directly to it. If the credentials didn't match or a new WiFi is available, meow! will start in Setup Mode. A AP is startet and broadcasts "meow! Setup!" as SSID. You can connect to this WiFi and a Splash-Page will let you assign new WiFi credentials to meow!.
So, anyone with a WiFi enabled device can integrate / assign meow! to the local network.
(To reset the WiFi credentials, you could use the 'undocumented' ;-) reset URL http://meow.local/resetwifi and the device will reset and restart in ,meow! Setup' mode.
Because a (moving) picture is worth a thousand words:

Web Interface of meow! The Cat is a animated gif that meows some hearts.
