Adafruit IO Basics

Todd Treece has put together seven guides using Adafruit IO for input, temperature, humidity, servo control, and so much more:

Digital Input: Wire a circuit to send momentary button press data to your Adafruit IO Dashboard

Digital Output: Turn on a LED or a lamp from anywhere in the world!

Color: Send data from Adafruit IO to control a RGB LED. 

Temperature and Humidity: Send humidity and temperature values from a DHT22 sensor to Adafruit IO 

Analog Output: LED and other analog hardware control from Adafruit IO.

Analog Input: Send light sensor data in real-time and view it using using Adafruit IO.

Servo Control: Move physical objects...without wires!

Adafruit IO on the Adafruit Learning System

The Adafruit Learning System is also a great place to find learning guides which answer the age-old maker question of "what do I build next?".

Here are some of our favorite guides using Adafruit IO:
