Code

Particle 1 CodeC/C++
This particle receives the variable "Yes5765776" from IFTTT when there is an event coming up on Google Calendar. When the variable is received, it tells the servo to move its hand to the "yes" position. When there is no assignment coming up, it rests in the "no" position.
int servoPin = D0;
Servo myservo;
int servoPos = 0;
void setup() {
    myservo.attach( D0 );
Particle.subscribe("Yes576577", myHandler);
}

void loop()
{}
  
void myHandler(const char *event, const char *data)
{
    if(strcmp(data,"Yes")==0)
    {
        Particle.publish("led576577", "Blink")
myservo.write(45);
delay(5000);
myservo.write(0);
}
}
Particle 2 CodeC/C++
This code receives variable from particle 1 and turns on LED when an event is received.
int led = D0;


void setup() {
digitalWrite(led,LOW);
Particle.subscribe ("Yes", myHandler);
pinMode (led, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(led,HIGH);
delay(5000);
 digitalWrite(led,LOW);
}

void loop() {


}

void myHandler(const char *event, const char *data)
{
    if(strcmp(data,"Blink")==0) {
         digitalWrite(led,HIGH);

  
}
   else{
   }   
  }
