DOES ADAFRUIT ALLOW SENSOR CONTROL?

by ddalmia3 on Fri Oct 16, 2020 2:18 pm

I'm wondering if I connect my microcontroller that has a sensor to gather temperature to Adafruit.io, and leave it out in the open (lets say my backyard), will I be able to turn the sensor on and off on my dashboard? Does Adafruit.IO allow sensor interfacing and control? And if so, where can I read the documentation to make sure each sensor is compatible with Adafruit.IO and it is connected?

Sensors aren't necessarily compatible / not-compatible with Adafruit IO. The basic steps are:
  • Read value from sensor
  • Send value to Adafruit IO
So anything you can read a value from you can send to AIO.

In terms of turning on/off, you'd do that with something like digital out:
