AirCasting: Gadgeteer External Device
Happy to hear you we're able to get everything working. Also note that while actively recording a session you can toggle between sensor streams by a) pressing the "eye" icon on the "Sensors Dashboard" screen; or b) pressing the "Avg", "Now", or "Peak" circles and selecting a sensor from the list.

AirCasting: non-trivial "comfort zones"?
Unfortunately no, but you can change the thresholds between colors by tapping the heat legend (the colored bar at the top of the screen) and changing the values using the sliders or keyboard.
