Process & Reflections

I started out with one input or sensor one a time, and then add on to it another input. This helped me to understand how the circuit works on the breadboard. 

Relating the photoresistor reading value (0-4095) and the PWM range (0-255) to the actual brightness seen through human eyes, was an odd process for me. It took a few try outs to see what it actually looks like by trying out different values and checking the reading from Particle Console. The photoresistor sensor also seems a bit unstable with instances where LED brightness not reacting or reacting slowly.

Overall, I think I gained better understanding in how the circuit works on the breadboard. And it was nice to imagine how the prototype relates to the real world.
