There are many guides for creating a Raspberry Pi Access Point but from Raspbian 9 Stretch the network setup has changed, which means a lot of guides are out of date. So this guide is about setting up a Raspberry Pi Hotspot for Raspbian 9 Stretch onwards, it also works for Raspbian 8 Jessie.

A script to allow the Raspberry Pi to connect to a know wifi router or automatically generate a Non Internet Hotspot Access Point if no network is found. You can then use SSH or VNC on the move and switch between the hotspot and home network without a reboot.

This is suitable for the Pi Zero W which has no Network port or anybody who does not need an internet routed access point on a Raspberry Pi 3 or RPi 3B+. Just for direct Wifi access to the PI when you are out and about.

Raspberry Pi - Auto WiFi Hotspot Switch

A script to switch between a WiFi Network or WiFi HotSpot without a reboot. If the Wifi network is lost then the RPi will generate a Wifi hotspot, then reconnect to the Network when it is available again.

I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3 which i want to connect to via SSH from my Android tablet or phone when i am not in range of my home router.

My requirements are for when the pi is at home it connects to my home router or other known routers so it is available on the local network. If no router is found when it is started up then it will create a wifi hotspot, which is not rooted to the Internet, so i can SSH to the RPi from another device and control the camera and run other custom scripts.
