Step 1 is to get your Funhouse set up in the Adafruit IO WipperSnapper page. Follow the instructions in the previously mentioned Quickstart guide to do this. 

Set Up the Water Sensor

  • From the WipperSnapper page, click "New Component"
  • Select "Water Sensor"
  • Name the sensor
  • Choose A2 from the drop-down list

Test the IR Sensor

Next, test out the water sensor to verify it's working properly.

  • Try dipping the tip of the sensor into a cup of water.
  • Check the WipperSnapper device page to see if the value changes from wet to dry for your sensor.

Troubleshooting the Sensor

If you are not receiving feedback from the sensor verify the following:

  • The sensor is correctly wired according to the directions on the "Add the Water Sensor" page
  • The Stemma cable is connected to the A2 pin on the FunHouse
