Summary: Simple Blink Tutorial for Particle.io Electron Device from Cache
Electron device is a tiny ARM processor ($40-$60) that connects to Particle’s world wide leased 2G/3G network (about $3/mo) and runs off an included LiPo battery. Using Cache’s %Net.HttpRequest you can send/receive data, control hardware and read sensors.
Step by Step (about 1 hour)
1) Get the Electron from store.particle.io.
2) Set up the Electron from setup.particle.io.
3) Install an LED and resistor from setup instructions.
4) Test with build.particle.io using their code for “Web-Connected LED”. You get your access_token from Settings and device number from Devices in Build and substitute in their code. Edit the code to make sure you can light the LED from a browser before moving to step 5
