Before you begin logging your fume extractor data, you need to do some setup in Adafruit IO.

First, check out this Learn guide if you've never used Adafruit IO before to see how to get started.

Creating the Feeds

For this project you'll need two feeds: fumes and fan-speed.

Go to Feeds and then click on + New Feed.

Name the feed "fumes" and then click Create.

Repeat this process to create the "fan-speed" feed.

Afterwards, you should see both feeds in your list.

Creating the Dashboard

Go to Dashboards and then click on + New Dashboard.

Name the dashboard and then click Create.

Click on the dashboard to add the feeds.

Adding the Feeds to Your Dashboard

On your dashboard page, click on the cog wheel on the right-hand side of the screen. Then click + Create New Block.

Click on the Line Chart block, outlined in red in the picture.

Check-off the fumes feed.

Then click Next step.

Name the block and then click Create block.

Repeat this process for the fan-speed feed. Afterwards, you should have two line chart blocks on your dashboard for both feeds.
