How to set limit for mq7 to trigger an alarm
i have set the alarm but just need to set the limt to trigger the alarm

Well if you've worked out how to read the sensor all you need to do is pick a value above which the alarm triggers.

Post the code you have so far with the sensor being read and the alarm being set.



 heres my code

const int AOUTpin=0;//the AOUT pin of the CO sensor goes into analog pin A0 of the arduino
const int DOUTpin=7;//the DOUT pin of the CO sensor goes into digital pin D8 of the arduino
const int ledPin=13;//the anode of the LED connects to digital pin D13 of the arduino

int limit;
int value;

void setup() {
Serial.begin(115200);//sets the baud rate
pinMode(DOUTpin, INPUT);//sets the pin as an input to the arduino
pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);//sets the pin as an output of the arduino

void loop()

value= analogRead(AOUTpin);//reads the analaog value from the CO sensor's AOUT pin
limit= digitalRead(DOUTpin);//reads the digital value from the CO sensor's DOUT pin
Serial.print("CO value: ");
Serial.println(value);//prints the CO value
Serial.print("Limit: ");
Serial.println( HIGH );//prints the limit reached as either LOW or HIGH (above or underneath)
if (limit == LOW){
digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);//if limit has been reached, LED turns on as status indicator
digitalWrite(ledPin,LOW);//if threshold not reached, LED remains off

how can you do it on the sensor itseelf
