Feed Setup

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.

Dashboard Setup 

Next, step is to create a dashboard to display the value read by the ADT7410 sensor.

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.
