First, I am really enjoying this group. I have looked through 187 projects and tons of posts, but still feel lost. I am not a programmer or a hardware guy. I bought an Imp to do one thing, send a text message when I have a bird. I assist with bird banding to track migration and design bird traps. As an input to the Imp I can have either a switch closure or a +5V signal coming from the trap relay. Not sure which is best or which pins to use. I could really use help on which code or code snippets to use. I looked at the washing machine text project, but it’s still kind of over my head. I would just like a text to my phone that says “Bird in trap #1”, when the trap relay actuates.
So far I have blinked my Imp and got the device log to say “Hello from the device”, but that’s it. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
