Blynk has been the first choice for central software at my previous employment and I brought it to my current company. It is very fun and easy to navigate and everyone enjoys it.

Nice widgets are there to make all trackers about your project. You will have a nice dashboard if you try this.

It seems no more development on current platform, even if already quite complete. It was announced a new enhanced platform to be available, but till now no news.

Best setup for home automation

Reviewed 3 years ago

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.

Pros

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!

Cons

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.

IOT, Live interaction with devices with Blynk

Reviewed 2 years ago

overall for home IOT system blynk is best, blynk is not recommnded for industrial use, support is limited i.e forum is availabe, but it takes time to get users/moderators respond. For home automation local blynk server is best, whereas blynk official server is also good optin to avoid diruption in connection.

Pros

Very easy pre programmed scripts almost for every projects available or little modification required, secured and reliablilty in connection. smooth and easy interfaces like button,guages and charts. All the technical setting to set user interface button etc can be configured on mobile.

Cons

Large data cant be exported from blynk, in blynk local server database and data is hard to found, MQTT configuration is missing. Temperatures/reading auto delete after a certain readings.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review. Blynk app is designed for prototyping and personal use. Commercial apps and configuration provides more data storage, MQTT. Also, when you sign up for commercial plan, you get a technical support from Blynk Team within 24-48 hours Commercial version of the platform offers
