  • while transmitting, by a plurality of antennas of the wireless power transmitter, a first plurality of wireless power waves to a receiver that uses energy from the first plurality of wireless power waves to power or charge an electronic device that is coupled with the receiver, wherein the first plurality of wireless power waves is transmitted using a first set of transmission features;

    receiving a request from an operator of the wireless power transmitter for accessing a configuration web page that allows the operator to configure the wireless power transmitter;

    in response to receiving the request, providing, by a web service executed at the wireless power transmitter, information used to present the configuration web page; and
