Sparkfun: Under “Features”, could you explicitly state that the Imp does NOT support enterprise-level non-PSK security, such as 802.1x or PEAP (i.e. most university campuses).
I blew a chunk of time trying to troubleshoot this product, only to find an “oh by the way” reference to this limitation in the Imp forums. This issue deserves to be out front, as it makes Imp a non-starter for some.

I’m confused. Based on the Aniomagic website, your printed description is for “Chiclet”, but Dia’s video and your photo say “Sparkle”. They’re not the same product. All versions of Sparkle made before January 2014 worked with sensors; however, this is not true after that date. Currently, only Chiclet works with sensors. Other limits are described on their website. So, what is this: (a) a pre-2014 Sparkle or (b) a post-2013 Chiclet?

A (Fritzing) diagram would be very helpful; I can’t get the images large enough to clearly see the wiring connections. Thanks for this tutorial.
Tutorial - Electric Imp Breakout Hookup Guide - Retired |

An update to this tutorial is necessary. Electric Imp has deprecated their “Planner” IDE (which this tutorial uses). The new IDE is quite different. Since parts of this tutorial use the Planner (rather than the actual code), I can’t even translate from Planner to the new Agent/Device IDE. Having recently purchased a chuck of Imp products from Sparkfun, an update would be greatly appreciated.

TCO: Imp v. XBee
I have a multipoint networking project that requires Internet-based control. Two approaches were compared:
(A) XBee Series 2 system [https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10414] with ConnectPort X2 [https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10569] or
(B) Imp-based system.
Each ecosystem has unique advantages/disadvantages. But consider total hardware cost:
The break-even point is 6 modules. For fewer than 6 modules, the Imp is cheaper than the XBee Series 2 (regular, not “Pro”). Above 6, the Imp becomes more expensive.
Some comments at SparkFun have complained that Imp is a closed system that will likely charge customers/developers for future use of their cloud. But Digi does the same with its iDigi Device cloud system for the XBee (above 5 devices = a fee). Final cost will also be influenced by whether the XBee Pro or non-Pro modules are used.
No public wish lists :(
