Can i get the frequency band of the wireless network that the imp is connected to?

so i’m planning a deployment of imps across a building. i was wondering if i could use it to map the wifi signal coverage… i see that i can get rssi from the imps, and i can even get a list of ssids… but i what i would like is to get a list of the bssids nearby and also their associated rssi’s… is this available?

also, is there a 5ghz version?

Take a look at the imp.scanwifinetworks() imp API call. This will list all the hotspots detectable by an imp, each one being presented as a table listing SSID, BSSID, RSSI, Channel and whether the network is open or not.

The currently available imps - imp001, imp002 and imp003 - only support 2.4GHz. However, the imp005, which is expected to go into production next year, supports 5GHz as well as 2.4GHz (and wired Ethernet too) though not simultaneously.
