Think of the threshold as a toll booth. When the signal passing through a circuit reaches it, the threshold decides whether or not it can continue. Use it to make any sensor Bit (like a temperature sensor) into a trigger Bit!

The threshold Bit helps you automate your circuit. It checks its input to decide whether the Bits that come after it will be ON or OFF. Think of it like the height requirement on a roller coaster: If you're over a certain height, you can pass through the gate, and the ride starts. Try it with a temperature sensor and a fan to automate a breeze when it's hot out!

The threshold Bit receives signal from the Bit before it, and doesn't let the signal pass until it reaches the amount of voltage you set using it's knob. Set a higher limit by turning the knob clockwise, and the Bit will not let the signal pass through unless it is more than the limit you set. Don't see any signal passing through? Lower the limit you set by turning the knob counterclockwise. For a detailed explanation, check out our Getting Started with the Threshold video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnKZmLQ2e44
