The Electric Imp BlinkUp App

Important Android users, please update the Electric Imp app to version 4.5.4 or above as earlier versions will soon cease to work (see Known Issues).


Both development-oriented imp-enabled devices and BlinkUp™ fixtures for factory installation are added to your Electric Imp account using the Electric Imp mobile app. This app is currently available for both iOS and Android operating systems:

Current Versions

iOS

The iOS Electric Imp app is at version 4.5.8.

Android

The Android Electric Imp app is at version 4.5.6.

Known Issues

Android

Under Android 9 and some later Android 8 releases (API 26 and up), getting the name of the network to which the host phone is connected requires permission to be granted by the user. We are working to add this, but until we do, the SETUP page’s Network Name field will be empty and will not be pre-set with the name of the network to which the host phone is connected.

Versions of the app older than 4.5.4 (released September 28, 2018) no longer work — please update to the most recent release.

iOS

None.
