Best setup for home automation

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I appreciate the simplicity of creating a small project and then having an app as a controller for any home automation project. It's one of the few apps where I would actually pay money for.

Vorteile:

The software is super easy to use. It's compatible with Arduino, raspberry pi, and tons of other cheap micro-controllers that make home automation a breeze. Very little coding is required, and you can get a system up and running in no time. The community is great and very helpful with troubleshooting and they really care about your opinions and suggestions. Highly recommend to anyone, beginners or experts!

Nachteile:

There was a little bit of a learning curve with specific widgets that may not seem straight forward, but the examples online are very helpful.

It is easy, beginner-friendly, sophisticated, and cloud-compatible

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

We can connect our IoT sensors and modules using this free Android software, which is available to everyone. The user experience is excellent, and the user interface is engaging. It often releases new upgrades and additions to improve the functionality of its program. Even a complete novice may use the platform's no-code method to quickly grasp IoT. Data visualization on a dashboard is useful during the product development and design phases. No one can avoid using this app since it is so all-consuming. Its online offerings are much superior to those of its rivals in this market. Additionally, firmware configuration is simple to manage thanks to the WiFi provisioning procedure.

Nachteile:

For users of mobile apps, the notice also looks to be overly delayed. It should be enhanced in a variety of ways. Complex use cases might not be produced with a no-code technique, requiring more development work. It seems that the technology can be difficult for inexperienced integrators. It has been noted that the user receives Blynk Software notifications with a delay. I also like having gadgets that can be organized into groups based on their functions so that I can manage them all at once.

Blynk make IoT easier!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I like the plenty examples you get from internet, also, the many plugins that are available are awesome. I use it for home purposes on my DIY hobby, but I don't see any problem for a productive use. It can be very reliable if you do it correctly.

Vorteile:

Blynk is a nice platform to join many pieces of software and hardware into a simple interface. Your imagination is the limit (it can be above the sky). As a DIY enthusiast, I loved Blynk! You can connect your Arduino, Raspberry and much other development boards to an Android application, you can use Python, C, or anything to create an interface, its flexible! I made my home aquarium connected to my phone, computer and even my car, also, some of my home lights are controlled by the same network, so I can control them from anywhere in the world. Oh, the Christmas lights are there too. Merry Christmas!

Nachteile:

Nothing yet. Maybe at the beginning (I started using this at least 3 years ago) the documentation was hard to understand and the examples didn't help. Maybe that was fault of my learning curve, not the platform itself. But today is really easy to use and there are many plugins to it. So that is not really a con.

Best in Class for (IoT) Internet of Things

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: 1. I utilizes Blynk for teaching students Embedded Systems & Internet of Things Development because it allows for Rapid Development.
2. I have used Blynk to building individual projects as a hobby.

Vorteile:

1. It allows easy interfacing options for tons of hardware devices. 2. The software is feature rich with the availability of tons of widgets. 3. The community support and documentation is super useful. 4. The coding structure is easy to understand and the change in hardware does not involve a major change in the underlying Blynk code. 5. Server side programming is available.(changing pins on the app allows to gather and send data at different pins without the need to add it to the code) 6. Worth every penny!

Nachteile:

1. I believe that the cost of custom app development can be reduced specially for the individual needs. 2. The team can think from an education perspective so as to bring Blynk easily in IoT training.

For next gen developers in IoT and AI-ML space..!

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We used the Blynk app and its service to develop a small POC of an IoT-based project. We used Arduino and NodeMCU together to develop the application interface and it was an awesome experience. It saves a lot of time in developing a native android app in the ideation stage.

Vorteile:

There are a lot of features that make Blynk unique, among which the best is its wide adaptability, there are more than 5 million developers currently working and building on top of Blynk, and huge community acceptance itself shows how scalable this platform is. Blynk is not just an interfacing tool but now it is a full-fledged platform now. We can leverage easy, simple, and lightweight REST APIs for KPI screening n the dashboard. Also, it has evolved a lot as a no-code dev platform that enabled you to use cloud infrastructure.

Nachteile:

No cons at all. Blynk readily adapts to a wide variety of dev boards like Arduino (All micro/sub version), ESP32 (Node MCUs), Raspberry Pi, and many more.

Poweful Product for a Small Company

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Using Blynk you can automate, schedule, control and monitor both analog and digital devices across the world either from a web interface (Blynk cloud server) or from your local server. With Blynk your IoT projects and solutions are only limited by your imagination.You will get to love the product! For a small team you get a bloody amazing product! Thanks to them, I can now put out projects and solutions that not only look great but also work great making me look great. Now that works for me!

Vorteile:

Blynk can either be run on a standalone Server or on the Blynk Web server. The product works great!! Versatile, intuitive, creative - those are just some of the many great features of the product. For a small team of developers, running on a small budget, you get an amazing product. With Blynk and Arduino, knowing nothing about electronics, you can create the most amazing projects thanks to the creative minds of the Blynk Team. Their customer support is excellent, but what is even more amazing is the international Blynk support from Blynk users. What an amazing experience!! Blynk offers the common folk the chance to learn about electronics and become creative and to participate in world previously destined for those with an electronic / electrical background and/or education. I do not use any other product except for Blynk - no need to bother looking for anything else because it is all there.

Nachteile:

* Pricing is a little high in my opinion, especially in countries where the dollar exchange rate is poor ! Many IoT users will consider pricing over product. * Customizing controls could be more versatile. * A Web interface where code could be generated for the use of controls to help noobs (like me) not suffer from figuring out the code - very much like http://easycoding.tn/tuniot/demos/code/. * MySQL database interaction would be a great advantage instead the default PostGreSQL database.

Easiest IoT Out There

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

This app was absolutely the easiest IoT setup I've ever been through. I've used it multiple times with my esp8266's to setup up rbg controllable lights that I can share with friends. Their arduino library couldn't be simpler to implement and comes with great documentation and a multitude of examples for each type of device. All I needed was an autogenerated key string at the top of my code to connect it to the prebuilt and maintained backend. Then it was as simple as adding their rgb widget and pointing it at the pins I set. I loved that I could share my project with my family so they could control the lights with the same setup on their phones. No UI work necessary on my part and a setup up of 5 min means this is a HUGE win.

Nachteile:

I have very little to say in cons since they really met my needs quickly as a developer who works fast on his side projects and hobbies. One small thing I noticed is sharing is a little annoying because you share with a QR code so your recipient has to scan it. They allow you to send the QR code easily inside the app, but it doesn't help much if I'm able to text a QR code to someone's phone where they then need to scan it... we ended up using facebook messenger on their computers and they scanned with their phones.

Blynk has a solution for every iOT project we wanted to to do

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Currently I'm not doing business related software with Blynk. However, easy 'surfing' with many different kind of projects may lead to an application that is suitable for business use.

Vorteile:

Blynk has offered easily adaptable and working solution for every iOT project we wanted to do. There has been many very different kind of projects done in our iOT experiment group. Application examples are Home Automation, Robot Control, Voice control, Model Train Control, Music Players control and many more. Blynk has offered a nice UI solution for every project we have done.

Nachteile:

The amazing Blynk Forum is the best software related forum I have been visiting. There is an answer for every question and even for questions that are not Blynk related. People are asking for example help for how to write programs for Arduino etc. That means there is too much 'garbage' in Blynk Forum website.

Particle and ESP Projects made easy!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I use several dashboards for several projects around the house, including my home security system and sump pump monitor. The app is very pleasing to the eye, my projects look very professional, and works flawlessly. The community support is very active, and company stakeholders are extremely active on their forums. They are generous with the amount of product that they let you use for free, more than enough to try it out and create truly useful projects, but if you want to do more, the cost to add additional widgets is surprisingly cheap. I threw them $20 a long time ago and still have most of that credit available.

Vorteile:

Network connected microcontrollers are meaningless without a way to interact with them. Blynk makes the interface/app end of things EASY.

Nachteile:

None. The Blynk app works well on all devices I've tried, setting up a project is easy, coding the controller is easy, and things just work!

Amazing Software For Beginners and Pros

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: From using Blynk, I have realized that I don't need to rely on companies to sell me IoT devices to have a smart home. Instead, I can make every single device myself and have it all localized to the Blynk app.

Vorteile:

With Blynk, it is extremely easy to get WiFi and bluetooth enabled development boards like the ESP-32 functioning at the same level as store-bought home automation smart devices. It is easy to make a customize able set of widgets that allow control through a smart phone, which saves makers from being forced to buy commercial IoT devices when you can build a much more customizable version for cheaper.

Nachteile:

Some of the widgets are locked to a specific size ad cannot be resized. I would like to see more current features like Google Assistant or Siri integration.

Blynk - IOT easy-mode IOT prototyping

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: My experience with Blynk so far has been limited to prototyping, but it has been positive. There are a few things that I wanted to do that I was unable to accomplish with Blynk, but I was willing to live without those for the benefit of not needing to write my mobile application from scratch. I would not take Blynk into production though, primarily due to the security concerns.

Vorteile:

Blynk's strengths are its relative ease of use and its wide support for IOT platforms. In addition, Blynk solves the problem of needing to develop a mobile application for your IOT solution, which is great for prototyping (and even moving beyond prototyping).

Nachteile:

In this case, Blynk's strengths tie into its weaknesses. It is easy to use, but difficult to accomplish more specialized tasks. It supports many platforms, requiring that it cover the least common denominator. Documentation could be greatly improved -- in particular, lower-level API and protocol documentation that would assist in getting more advanced use cases off of the ground. Finally, security is a big concern with Blynk. I understand that IoT solutions are low-powered and that encryption is not necessarily top of mind, but it needs to be; a platform as ubiquitous as Blynk should have easy-to-use support for encrypted transit between the device and the server; in particular using common crypto accelerators such as the ATECC508A.

Perfect fit for my personal tinkering

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

I love to experiment with IoT and keep adding sensor and actions all over my world. Blynk is the glue that makes it all work together. And it does it in a logical manner that really fits my thinking. I use the iOS and android GUI builders. And I use the bridge widget to let my Objects communicate directly. It all works flawlessly! I am also thinking about using a local server at some point as even that seems so easy.

Nachteile:

The GUI is extremely easy to use but could benefit from a little more optional visual customization. That way my wife would love it even more.

Very very very fast IoT platform

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

It's so extremely fast to create a nice mobile app from Arduino H/W data. It can not be easier to develop IoT solutions including great looking user interface. The concept of buying electrical energy for more sophisticated apps has very high value for money. For a small number of bucks you get enough "energy" to build great apps. The tutorial videos are also extremely helpful and fun to watch. It's also great that a local server can be setup and that a Docker image is available as well.

Nachteile:

The documentation for the local server could be a bit better.

Excellent application to start IoT and more

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I wanted to start my connected home mostly using ESP8266 to do really custom hardware and software. Blynk allowed me to get it running within a few hours.

Vorteile:

The software is very easy to use and implement even for me who did not do any coding in the last 15 years. My sensors have been running on Blynk server for more than 3 years now without any issue. I was also positively impressed when seeing my improvement proposals implemented in the app after only a few weeks.

Nachteile:

There could still be some further improvements in the GUI to get close to Grafana for instance

Ludos

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I did several projects with blynk (mostly using Arduinos and ESPs) and I am very happy with it. One is actually a quite big project mixing 3 arduinos, an ESP and a nextion display with blynk as a remote action and controler, it works pretty well. The blynk.communuity site is very usefulll to learn how to do things and the docs are very usefull too, lots of good examples here that really helps.
With all this I've always been able to figure out a problem without having to request help. And this proove the quality of the product itself but also the quality of the information you can get your hand on.

Vorteile:

Very easy to use. Very versatile. nearly all what is needed is there.

Nachteile:

The lack of possibility to generate a app that can be downloaded. except for enterprise users, there is no way to customize apps for individual users. Even if there is two or more projects there is no way to distinct them on the mobile... Other point is the miss of analytical app on the server side when running personal server it could be usefull to have some kind of tool to anayse the datas collected in the database. Of course we can use our own, but something out of the box could be usefull.

Using Blynk for my home setup

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Very easy to use and install. I'm using blink over 2 years now and it's working like a charm.

Vorteile:

I like that I don't need to write my own app for my phone. I'm using the blynk app which is constantly upgraded with new widgets and functionality. I'm using the blynk library installed trough npm on my raspberry pi to controll lights, television... So in a couple of minutes you can start building your own project.

Nachteile:

Nothing special. A the beginning the blynk app had some is lack of functionality but this i now resolved.

Brilliant mobile to hardware IOT bridge

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Blynk has eliminated the need for us to code mobile apps completely and provided a reliable communications infrastructure that has saved a great deal of time and effort. We can focus more on the core product and worry less about the 'how to communicate'. This is definitely the product to reduce the time to a completed IOT project.

Vorteile:

Blynk has been an absolutely gold solution to our need for a quick and easy way to develop and deploy varies unique IOT solutions. Blynk requires an incredibly low effort to setup sophisticated communications on a wide variety of hardware platforms and mobile devices. With it's free tier level also allowing great scope for demonstration and small projects. There is also the option of hosting your own Blynk server should you have special security or other requirements making it very flexible. Blynk has a large community of users that often contribute to an ever expanding feature set making the Blynk service quiet contemporary and dynamic.

Nachteile:

The mobile user interface is a little restrictive at the moment. While you can achieve everything functionally needed the look and feel is currently a bit simple. Improvements are slowly being made.

Create proof-of-concept Apps in a Blynk

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: From my first time using Blynk, I went straight to work building my App for use with an Arduino and guess what...? It worked the first time. Hardware/software projects are difficult to begin with. Blynk has alleviated a lot of this for the initial attempt of a new project.

Vorteile:

Blynk is the first "App builder" I've used which has made it extremely quick & effortlessly to build an App for connecting to an Arduino or Particle IoT Board. Part of the challenge of designing for The Internet of Things, is proving to a client that what they're looking for is possible. Blynk makes is easy to create a proof-of-concept which the client can easily try out.

Nachteile:

There are some limitations to Blynk (as with other App Builder solutions), and that's where the native SDK's come in for building real, enterprise Apps. Though this is a drawback, the usefulness far outweighs the cons.
