I’ve done quite a bit of reading in the Blynk Community but haven’t found a solution to a basic need that I have. My need is to have multiple Blynk projects access a single device. I have 10 ESP8266 devices around the home, all connected to Blynk, Currently each device is accessed by its own dedicated Blynk project. I want to create a single notepad “dashboard” that shows a summary status of all devices (lights, outlets, temp. control, etc). The individual Blynk projects for each device have detailed widgets to show/control device names, MAC address, OTA buttons to initiate updates, etc. I don’t want the central Blynk dashboard project to display or access all of these detailed widgets from the individual projects. I only want the central dashboard to show a subset of widgets on the notepad.
For example, I have several ESP8266 smart switches for controlling lamps, coffee makers, etc. The individual Blynk projects have widgets to turn them on/off as well as specifying IP address, and buttons for controlling OTA updates, remote debugging etc. I want the single Blynk dashboard project to display the switch on/off status and be able to turn them on and off, but I DON’T want the dashboard project to be able to initial OTA updates, debugging, etc.
How can I accomplish this? if there was a way to access each device from multiple Blynk projects, that would solve my problem. I thought about shared projects, but it seems that is an all-or-nothing proposition.
Your words of wisdom from the community would be greatly appreciated!
