Adafruit IO Setup

The first thing you will need to do is to login to Adafruit IO and visit the Settings page.

Click the VIEW AIO KEY button to retrieve your key.

A window will pop up with your Adafruit IO. Keep a copy of this in a safe place. We'll need it later.

Creating the Color Feed

Next, you will need to create a feed called Color. If you need help getting started with creating feeds on Adafruit IO, check out the Adafruit IO Feed Basics guide.

Adding the Color Block

Next, add a new Color block to a new or existing dashboard. Name the block whatever you would like, but make sure you have selected the Color feed as the data source for the block.

If you need help getting started with Dashboards on Adafruit IO, check out the Adafruit IO Dashboard Basics guide.

When you are finished editing the form, click Create Block to add the new block to the dashboard.

Next, we will look at wiring the circuit.
