Electric Imp Platform

The Complete Connectivity Solution

The Internet of Things refers to the growing number of devices that are connected to the Internet, enabling them to interact with each other, online services and humans. Electric Imp is at the center of this movement, offering a complete end-to-end solution that makes it simple to connect almost any product to the Internet through an innovative and powerful cloud service tied closely to leading-edge hardware.

Now, rather than spending time and resources to design and integrate connectivity, companies and developers can instead focus on their core expertise to build unique and rich experiences into their products, add value and differentiation, and reduce time to market.

The Electric Imp connectivity platform, featuring fully integrated hardware, software, OS, APIs, cloud servers, makes it possible to effectively empower your devices with intelligence, scalability and flexibility. The possibilities are endless.

The Electric Imp Platform

Join Quirky and General Electric, Budweiser, Lockitron and many others - including thousands of developers and makers - who are using the Electric Imp platform and discover how the imp can transform a simple egg tray into a clever and smart inventory-management system; a door can be unlocked with a smartphone; or an entire factory can be managed remotely through a tablet – and practically anything else you can imagine.

Electric Imp offers a comprehensive solution designed to connect your product or project to the Internet quickly, easily and effectively. The platform includes:

  • Imp Hardware: The Electric Imp platform starts with the imp, a powerful module containing WiFi and a processor that acts as the gateway to connect your device or service to the Internet, providing it with a brain in the cloud.
  • Imp OS: The software foundation for the imp’s features and services that allows your code to concentrate on bringing your product’s functions to life.
  • Imp Cloud: Our cloud allows you to run agents - server side code that runs in a secure environment - that are used to provide HTTP I/O and cloud-side processing, and easily connect your products to anything with Internet access. Agents can act as a central hub to your products, apps, third-party services, and even your own servers.
  • Imp Open API: Enrich your customer experience and build your business by developing enhancements like messaging, monitoring, and much more.
  • Imp BlinkUpTM: The proprietary Electric Imp setup solution, BlinkUp, integrates seamlessly into your apps, letting you and your customers connect products in seconds using just a smartphone or tablet.
  • Imp Services - IDE and Ops Console: Maintain your software, push new code and features easily to devices anytime, ensuring that your users always have the latest features. The Ops Console enables you to gain more insight into your factory production lines and scale to millions of devices.

For manufacturers, the Electric Imp platform is an ideal way to bring connectivity to your devices faster and more easily. Please contact us at sales@electricimp.com for more information.
