LED Circuit Diagram

This diagram shows the circuit containing the LED and the second photon.

LED code

This code is called on when the variable in the other code "temperature" has reached 150 degrees. This is accomplished with the IFTTT app. When the variable is above 150 the function led is referenced otherwise the function ledoff is referenced.
int led1 = D0;
int led2 = D7;

// Last time, we only needed to declare pins in the setup function.
// This time, we are also going to register our Particle function

void setup()

   // Here's the pin configuration, same as last time
   pinMode(led1, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(led2, OUTPUT);

   // We are also going to declare a Particle.function so that we can turn the LED on and off from the cloud.

   // This is saying that when we ask the cloud for the function "led", it will employ the function ledToggle() from this app.

   // For good measure, let's also make sure both LEDs are off when we start:
   digitalWrite(led1, LOW);
   digitalWrite(led2, LOW);


/* Last time, we wanted to continously blink the LED on and off
Since we're waiting for input through the cloud this time,
we don't actually need to put anything in the loop */

 void loop(){  // Nothing to do here

// We're going to have a super cool function now that gets called when a matching API request is sent
// This is the ledToggle function we registered to the "led" Particle.function earlier.
int ledToggle(String command){
    /* Particle.functions always take a string as an argument and return an integer.
    Since we can pass a string, it means that we can give the program commands on how the function should be used.
    In this case, telling the function "on" will turn the LED on and telling it "off" will turn the LED off.
    Then, the function returns a value to us to let us know what happened.
    In this case, it will return 1 for the LEDs turning on, 0 for the LEDs turning off,
    and -1 if we received a totally bogus command that didn't do anything to the LEDs.

        return 1;
int ledToggleoff(String command){
    return 0;

Temperature and Servo code

This is the code in one photon that communicates the temperature to the LED circuit and turns the pot on.

#include <OneWire.h>

Servo myservo;  // create servo object to control a servo
                // a maximum of eight servo objects can be created

int pos = 0;    // variable to store the servo position

int gong(String command)   // when "gong" is called from the cloud, it will
{                          // be accompanied by a string.
    if(command == "on")   // if the string is "on", ring the gong once.

        myservo.write(0);       // move servo to 0∞ - ding!
        digitalWrite(D7, HIGH); // flash the LED (as an indicator)
        delay(150);             // wait 100 ms
        myservo.write(90);      // move servo to 25∞
        digitalWrite(D7, LOW);  // turn off LED
        return 1;               // return a status of "1"
int analogvalue = 0;
double tempF = 0;

This sketch reads the temperature from a 1-Wire device and then publishes
to the Particle cloud. From there, IFTTT can be used to log the date,
time, and temperature to a Google Spreadsheet. Read more in our tutorial

This sketch is the same as the example from the OneWire library, but
with the addition of three lines at the end to publish the data to the

Use this sketch to read the temperature from 1-Wire devices
you have attached to your Particle device (core, p0, p1, photon, electron)

Temperature is read from: DS18S20, DS18B20, DS1822, DS2438

Expanding on the enumeration process in the address scanner, this example
reads the temperature and outputs it from known device types as it scans.

I/O setup:
These made it easy to just 'plug in' my 18B20 (note that a bare TO-92
sensor may read higher than it should if it's right next to the Photon)

D3 - 1-wire ground, or just use regular pin and comment out below.
D4 - 1-wire signal, 2K-10K resistor to D5 (3v3)
D5 - 1-wire power, ditto ground comment.

A pull-up resistor is required on the signal line. The spec calls for a 4.7K.
I have used 1K-10K depending on the bus configuration and what I had out on the
bench. If you are powering the device, they all work. If you are using parisidic
power it gets more picky about the value.

OneWire ds = OneWire(D4);  // 1-wire signal on pin D4

unsigned long lastUpdate = 0;

float lastTemp;

void setup() {
  // Set up 'power' pins, comment out if not used!
  pinMode(D3, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(D5, OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(D3, LOW);
  digitalWrite(D5, HIGH);

    Particle.function("coffie", gong);  // create a function called "gong" that
                                      // can be called from the cloud
                                      // connect it to the gong function below
