    # Step 4

this code for temperature so you can modify for light on threshold

Can we use whatsapp instead??

WhatsApp has no bot feature which will alert via messages

Then using discord is possible?? It has not feature too

Yup, but you need to link your server bot API. Here is a link for creating bots
