karl-petter,I've finished building the hardware, have synced my imp, and created Zapier and Pushover accounts but I have questions about setting up the monitoring (particularly with the "Setup Zapier" section).1) Can you give me an example of how to choose a webhook and catch hook, what did you decide to choose? I was thinking of going with gmail but I'm really unsure of which settings I should choose for it (Zapier is completely new to me.).2) How do you get an Pushover API key to auth. to Zapier?Is it here? https://pushover.net/apps/build3) What do you mean by webhook URL?4) I noticed in the code for the Agent that there are several references to Xively.Do I need to change that, or does it matter?Thank you
Hi! Yes that adapter should work great. If you check the IMP data sheet you will see it draw max of 400mA at 3.6V so 1A at 9V is plenty of marginal.
Hi! Sorry for really late reply. Somehow missed your comment. It didnt become a blog post nor an instructuble but a GitHub project instead. Check it out here https://github.com/karl-petter/ImpMeatThermometer
Late reply but: yes, you can. The measurement is ratiometric so as long as the bias resistor matches the thermistor 25C temperature you're all set.
Hi all,I'm afraid Tom went to go and make rockets at SpaceX so he can't answer questions on tempbug anymore, but you can always go to the imp forums at forums.electricimp.com to post questions on things like data.sparkfun.com
If you're looking for serious accuracy, then thermistors aren't necessarily the best way to go. You should look at digital sensors instead, which are pre-calibrated - there's going to be a new environmental sensor demo board for the imp to replace the current one on Amazon shortly...
I'd like to bump jrwst36's comment. This Instructable is awesome, though I think it would be even more awesome if 2 thermistor temperatures were pushed to Sparkfun. That would help code newbies (like me) a lot!
karl-petter,Do you think a 9-volt (wall) adapter could be used instead of the 9-volt battery?

Is there any reason (other than convenience) for using a 9-volt battery instead of the USB mini-B port to power it?

Ah, I fell victim to the same thing! Bought the Adafruit jack and it won't fit through the 5/16" hole. Bought a pack of these: http://www.amazon.com/Generic-Barrel-5-5x2-1mm-Pan...Now I can build 9 more ISS-Overheads, which is probably going to be necessary when my coworkers encounter mine on my desk.
Did either of you figure this out. I read through the article, but not the comments and placed an order for the parts before realizing that xively was no longer usable.
Any tips on how to use the adafruit servo shield and the electric imp? I am trying to power and control 4 servos with my imp.
Hello! I'm planning on doing this project to keep track of temperature in our office. I can only find a 10K thermistor on adafruit. Would this work if I use a 10k resistor with it but do everything else the same?Link to the thermistor: https://www.adafruit.com/products/372Thank you!
Hey Tom, I can't seem to find your github page. Could you please refresh the link?
My temp bug stopped working and I an trying to reconnect. When I point the imp to my phone it "gathers data" but then notifies me the the connect was unsuccessful....what am I doing wrong?
Sorry if this has already been asked, but can you tell me how to push two pieces of data to data.sparkfun.com at once. I'm using a temp - humidity sensor. I've figured out how to log once piece of data but not both at once. Can you tell me how to modify the stream.push function to send two pieces of data a once (temp and humidity)?Thanks
Hi - I started this project only to realize Xively no longer supports new registrations. Instead I found I can setup an account with Sparkfun. Any suggestion on updated agent and device codes to allow the use of the grill thermometer with Sparkfun?
