Air gate void loop

Arduino
Replace the void loop () function in the sample code from circuito.io with the code below
void loop() {
  // Read distance measurment from UltraSonic sensor
  int hcsr04Dist = hcsr04.ping_cm();
  delay(10);
  //Serial.println(hcsr04Dist);

  rgbLed.setRGB(255, 0 , 0 );  //Change the values in the brackets to (255,0,0) for pure RED, (0,255,0) for pure GREEN and (0,0,255) for pure BLUE.


  if (hcsr04Dist < 30 && hcsr04Dist > 2)
  {
    rgbLed.setRGB(0, 255, 0);    //Change the values in the brackets to (255,0,0) for pure RED, (0,255,0) for pure GREEN and (0,0,255) for pure BLUE.
    delay(1000);
  }
}
