If you do not already have an Adafruit IO account set up, head over to io.adafruit.com to link your Adafruit.com account to Adafruit IO.
The first step is to create a new Adafruit IO feed to hold the AD7410's temperature. Navigate to the feeds page on Adafruit IO. Then click Actions -> Create New Feed, and name this feed temperature.
- If you do not already know how to create a feed, head over to Adafruit IO Basics: Feeds.
Next, step is to create a dashboard to display the value read by the ADT7410 sensor.
- If you do not know how to create or use Dashboards in Adafruit IO, head over to the Adafruit IO Basics: Dashboards guide.
Select the Gauge block.
Select the temperature feed created earlier.
In the Block Settings step, set the Block Title to Temperature, set the Gauge Min/Max Values to the upper and lower temperature thresholds you want to measure.
You can label the gauge by setting the Gauge Label - this example assumes temperature is to be measured in Degrees C.
Uncomfortably hot/cold? You can optionally set the gauge change color to warn you if the temperature goes above (or below) a certain value.
After adding the gauge element, your dashboard will look like the following:
You are also going to need your Adafruit IO username and secret API key.
Navigate to your profile and click the View AIO Key button to retrieve them. Write them down in a safe place, you'll need them for later.
