After fighting with 4(!) different Z-Wave products to get them to report temperatures to my custom program, I decided to check out this kit, especially since I had been intrigued by the Electric Imp earlier, closer to when it was first released. It's rare when developer-oriented embedded products just work, especially ones with a fair amount of underlying complexity like this one, but Electric Imp came through in spades. I had my Imp reporting temperature, humidity, pressure, and light level to dweet.io in about half an hour with zero problems along the way. Dweet.io provides tiny server storage where I can access the last message sent by my Imp very easily via a standard HTTP(S) call which is perfect -- exactly what I wanted from this product. Basically, it's just gorgeous -- I ordered 7 more.
The setup process was great. Plug a tail (the thing with specialized sensors) into the dev board, plug the Imp card into the SD slot of the dev board, and plug a USB cable in to...
Awesome little kit for environmental sensing with on board wifi. My 13 year son has used these to make several weather stations for his science project at school.
Very interesting kit. Allows you to quickly build a cloud-enabled temperature/humidity sensor. Very secure because the device only communicates with Electric Imp's servers. No risk of someone hacking into your WIFI through the device. Electric Imp provides a free cloud development environment for non-commercial users.
