Direct Mode allows you to use your iKamand in Cook Mode without internet connection or connecting the iKamand to a WiFi network. You might use this mode if you're grilling in a remote location without any WiFi and still want to use the iKamand.
You can put the iKamand into WiFi mode (or Access Point Mode) and connect your phone directly to its WiFi network then monitor and control the temperature.
To run direct mode, press the WiFi symbol on the top left of the cook screen and follow the instructions to put your iKamand into WiFi mode.
While cooking with the iKamand in WiFi mode, you won't get notifications for instance when your food is finished cooking or your grill reaches temperature so monitor closely. If you disconnect from the iKamand's WiFi, you will cease to get updates from your iKamand device.
