Particle Web IDE code

Java
This is the code flashed onto the argon in order for the sensor to pick up signal.
int touchpin = D7; // sets the metal touch sensor to D7
int value ; // defines the numeric variables as value

    void setup()
{
    Particle.variable("value", value);// Reads the value variable in order for IFTTT applet to work
    pinMode (touchpin, INPUT) ; // sets the metal touch sensor as INPUT
}

void loop ()
{
  value = digitalRead (touchpin) ; // reads the value of the touchpin
  
  if (value == HIGH)      // If the value is HIGH 
  {
    Serial.println("HIGH"); // the sensor has been triggered, tells IFTTT to send myself an email
  }
  else       
  {
    Serial.println ("LOW");  //the sensor is not triggered
  }
  delay(250); 
}
