ThingSpeak Connects to XIG

ThingSpeak describes itself as “an open application platform designed to enable meaningful connections between things and people.” They just added a complete tutorial on how to use the XBee Internet Gateway to connect with their platform, including using iDigi to manage the device. So that’s two powerful platforms in one easy package!

Suggested uses for the combo are getting an Arduino to wirelessly send and receive data, tweet automatically, or use ThingHTTP to fetch and parse web sites on smart physical devices. Ready to prototype the interactive air freshener of the future? Start with the XIG!
