Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Setting an Event
as I mention before you do need to check my previous instructable here. because we will not do any coding or different hardware setup in here.
The email that will be sent contain alert notification if the Gas level are above normal based on the data uploaded to the ubidots platform.
We will start at your ubidots dasboard, click the "Event" Menu just like in the picture.
Step 2: Create a New Event
Click on the "add event" box.
Then choose the gas data that we will use
Step 3: Data Variable
Choose the MQ 2 data variable
Step 4: IFTTT (If This Then That)
this is the section where you set the data value that will trigger the alert notification.
The gas normal data is below 100, so the abnormal data is above or greater than 100.
Step 5: Set Your Email Address and Subject
Choose the email icone
Fill the box with your own email address and set the subject as you like.
after you do that, you will ask to give a name to this event. Name it whatever you like
Step 6: You Got Mail
now you have a new event for your project.
Try to give the sensor gas from a gas lighter to get a big sensor data above 100 then you will receive the email that you've just set before.
