Controlling electric imp over the internet

by e-r-a-n on Fri Jan 18, 2013 1:48 am

I wish to buy an electric imp for some on/off switching in my house.
but i couldnt see exactly how i control it from the internet.
If i have android phone, can i use the app to login to my device and send it commands?
has anyone experienced the imp already?

The imp can receive info from an html form page via GET or POST. I just made a page with an ON and OFF button that tells the pins to write 0 or 1. I am using it to turn LEDs on and off, but you could just as easily use a relay.

Here is the part in the imp Wiki that talks about HTTP in and out.

They have a good example of how to format the POST for JSON delivery and how it is received in the Squirrel code

I hope that help.
