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 Servo Feed

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

Adding the Slider Block

Next, add a new Slider Block to a new or existing dashboard. Name the block whatever you would like, and set min value to 0 and max value to 180. Make sure you have selected the Servo feed as the data source for the slider.

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.
