Hi @223j5a4205

Please make sure that you have given the correct credentials in your file. Enter the correct mailgun api, sandbox url, sender email, recipient email, Bolt api key and bolt device id in the file.

Below is a working code for temperature email alert. Do try this. Make sure to replace the api keys and other credentials with your actual credentials file:

import email_conf
from boltiot import Email, Bolt
import json, time

minimum_limit = 300 #the minimum threshold of light value 
maximum_limit = 600 #the maximum threshold of light value 

mybolt = Bolt(email_conf.API_KEY, email_conf.DEVICE_ID)
mailer = Email(email_conf.MAILGUN_API_KEY, email_conf.SANDBOX_URL, email_conf.SENDER_EMAIL, email_conf.RECIPIENT_EMAIL)

while True: 
    print ("Reading sensor value")
    response = mybolt.analogRead('A0') 
    data = json.loads(response) 
    print ("Sensor value is: " + str(data['value']))
        sensor_value = int(data['value']) 
        if sensor_value > maximum_limit or sensor_value < minimum_limit:
            print("Making request to Mailgun to send an email")
            response = mailer.send_email("Alert", "The Current temperature sensor value is " +str(sensor_value))
            response_text = json.loads(response.text)
            print("Response received from Mailgun is: " + str(response_text['message']))
    except Exception as e: 
        print ("Error occured: Below are the details")
        print (e)
    time.sleep(10) file: please replace the content inside the quotes (’ ') with your values.

MAILGUN_API_KEY = 'This is the private API key which you can find on your Mailgun Dashboard' 
SANDBOX_URL= 'You can find this on your Mailgun Dashboard' 
SENDER_EMAIL = 'test@' + SANDBOX_URL  # No need to modify this. The sandbox URL is of the format test@YOUR_SANDBOX_URL
RECIPIENT_EMAIL = 'Enter your Email ID Here'
API_KEY = 'This is your Bolt Cloud account API key'
DEVICE_ID = 'This is the ID of your Bolt device'

Do try this and let us know. If you still face any issue, please feel free to get beck to us.

I could not find any mailgun api key here

I got the solution, i created a new api key and then copy the api key to my code and then the code works

Thank you for guiding me @sneharsh.kerkar
