Code

Installing Ubidot Library

Python
For use the Python Ubidot API, on Embedded Linux
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
sudo easy_install pip
sudo pip install ubidots

Collect and Send Data

Python
Monitoring the sensor value, and sending to data service.
import Adafruit_BBIO.ADC as ADC
from ubidots import ApiClient

def send_data(val):
    #Create an "API" object
    api = ApiClient("xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx")
    #Create a "Variable" object
    test_variable = api.get_variable("56f5fdb17625426671c22716")
    #Write the value to your variable in Ubidots
    test_variable.save_value({'value':val})

ADC.setup()
alertval = 1600
over = False
value = 0
while True:
    nvalue = ADC.read_raw("P9_39")
    if nvalue != value:
        value = nvalue
        print value
    if nvalue > alertval and over == False:
        print 'up alert value ',value
        over = True
        send_data(nvalue)
    if nvalue < alertval and over == True:
        print 'down alert value ',value
        over = False
        send_data(nvalue)
