How to use the Network Change robot skill

Execute scripts based on network connection change activity. Such as if WiFi connects or disconnects. This is useful for headless SBCs mounted on robots. When the computer boots and ARC is configured to load on startup, configure this robot skill to announce to the speaker the status of the wifi connection.

I use this on my headless SBCs mounted on the robots. When the computer boots, ARC loads. And when ARC loads the project, this robot skill announces to the speaker the status of the wifi connection.
