Need help sending sensor's data from Wemos to thingspeak

Hi, I’ve been scratching my head over trying to send data from my metal proximity sensor to thingspeak for over a week now. I tried it with UNO and Wemos D1-R2 as well. I’m able to send random numbers to thingspeak but not that of sensor’s. Could someone help me figure out where am I doing it wrong?

#include "ThingSpeak.h"
#include "secrets.h"
#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>

char ssid[] = SECRET_SSID;   // your network SSID (name) 
char pass[] = SECRET_PASS;   // your network password
int keyIndex = 0;            // your network key Index number (needed only for WEP)
WiFiClient  client;

const int ProxSensor = D2;

unsigned long myChannelNumber = SECRET_CH_ID;
const char * myWriteAPIKey = SECRET_WRITE_APIKEY;



void setup() {
Serial.begin(115200);  // Initialize serial

WiFi.mode(WIFI_STA); 
ThingSpeak.begin(client);  // Initialize ThingSpeak

 pinMode(D14, OUTPUT);     
//Pin 14 is connected to the output of proximity sensor
pinMode(ProxSensor,INPUT);
}

void loop() {

// Connect or reconnect to WiFi
if(WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED){
  Serial.print("Attempting to connect to SSID: ");
  Serial.println(SECRET_SSID);
  while(WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED){
    WiFi.begin(ssid, pass);  // Connect to WPA/WPA2 network. Change this line if using open or WEP network
    Serial.print(".");
    delay(5000);     
  } 
  Serial.println("\nConnected.");
}
if(digitalRead(ProxSensor)==HIGH)      //Check the sensor output
{
  digitalWrite(D14, HIGH);   // set the LED on
}
// Write to ThingSpeak. There are up to 8 fields in a channel, allowing you to store up to 8 different
// pieces of information in a channel.  Here, we write to field 1.
int x = ThingSpeak.writeField(myChannelNumber, 1, 1, myWriteAPIKey);
if(x == 200){
  Serial.println("Channel update successful.");
}
else{
  Serial.println("Problem updating channel. HTTP error code " + String(x));
}
if(digitalRead(ProxSensor)==LOW)
 {
  digitalWrite(13, LOW);    // set the LED off
}
delay(100); 
 int y = ThingSpeak.writeField(myChannelNumber, 1, 0, myWriteAPIKey);
if(y == 200){
  Serial.println("Channel update successful.");
}
else{
  Serial.println("Problem updating channel. HTTP error code " + String(x));
}


// change the value


delay(20000); // Wait 20 seconds to update the channel again
}

p.s: I used a thingspeak library to code this. (Hence why secrets.h)

What’s going on with all the similar questions ? (Cf @ Akshaykumar45 and @ Vignesh17)
School project ? Work together to study the docs and examples…

The forum won’t do the work for you Grab an example from the library and get it to work. If it does not work then you have a network or wiring configuration issue

Are you able to get the sensor output correctly sent to the serial monitor as a test?
