[Official Tutorial] Connecting Electric Imp to ThingSpeak IoT Data Services

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Build Open Data Applications with Electric Imp and ThingSpeak!

Electric Imp is a connectivity platform for connecting Wi-Fi devices to cloud services, much like RealTime.io and Iota Wi-Fi modules and Spark.io. Some Electric Imp module’s come in an SD card form factor and adds Wi-Fi connectivity to what’s connected to the Electric Imp module. Access to the Electric Module happens via the Electric Imp cloud. While connectivity is simplified with the Electric Imp system, you will need a data service like ThingSpeak to complete the Internet of Things experience. Once data from Electric Imp devices are in ThingSpeak, you can easily build applications and interactivity with other devices and platforms.

Electric Imp to ThingSpeak Internet of Things

We put together a quick start tutorial for the Electric Imp and ThingSpeak, so you can quickly and easily get the Electric Imp talking to ThingSpeak. The tutorial uses parts from SparkFun – the Electric Imp Wi-Fi SD module, breakout board, and USB cable / power supply.
