It has taken me longer than I had hoped to dive into some projects with the Electric Imp. I got my dev kit a few months back but wasn’t able to commission the Imps until the iOS app was approved. Now that the April boards and the Impees are readily available I decided to start with a simple project.

The Hannah has a temperature sensor built into the board so I started playing around with recording temperature from the Hannah and pushing it to Cosm for logging. Since I had plenty of TMP36 temperature sensors and some photocells I began building a series of temperature and light intensity loggers with the April boards I have.

The datastreams are being sent to Cosm by adding a node in the Electric Imp Planner.

I haven’t pushed any posts out in a few weeks but I intend to finish a write up on my Electric Imp Temperature and Light Sensors connected to Cosm this weekend.

I’m in the middle of programming a Raspberry Pi to display the video feeds from my networked security cameras on a 7″ HDMI monitor and will post more details on it soon.
