need help with programming a machine to take input from sensor

in assembly language how do I write code to take input from a sensor and turns on a LED?
I'm writing an assembly program that will read information from a sensor that will detect whether its raining or not. the sensor will be the input and the LED will be the output indicating that its raining.
I have code written for 5 other weather conditions but right now I just want to figure out the most basic which is rain.

here's my code///////////////////////////I just want to know if I'm headed in the right direction, If not do you have any suggestions///////////////////

CODE --> assembly
