Hi all! How is the method to use BLYNK at home? since now having multiple devices makes it difficult to use both the app and the web. I have 2 Arduino Mega and 2 Wemos in my house.
The first option I did was to make a template for each one. It worked for me, but every time I needed to do something in another room, I had to leave the template I was in and go to another.
Then the option I made today was to make 1 single template with all the devices but now what happens to me is that I have ALL THE BUTTONS in All the places and for them to work I have to change the device yes or yes, for example:
1 switch = Living Light.
1 Switch = Garage Light
In both devices, all the switches appear but one does not work in the other, that is, if I want to turn on the light in the living room and turn off the light in the garage, I have to exchange devices / templates to be able to do it.
It got a bit tedious, I used to use bridge before, it was a good solution but now blynk was thought more for the “industry” and stopped being an application / service to domotize your home.
i use BLYNK for my house not for commercial.
Upgrade to plus plan to get more devices, it’s fairly cheap 59.99$/year.
@John93 I think you did not understand what I said, it is not because of the amount I already have PLUS. It is because of the bad disposition of things now you cannot have a “panel” with your entire house domotized since each device is weighing for each client, I use blynk for my house with SEVERAL devices.
Okay, so you would like to control multiple devices using one template, am I right ?
Yep, but not like pics on last topic.
Bridge widget has been replaced with automation, check this out
Yep i know that , i can make 1 templat with all switchs and when 1 switch change with automation change in real device but you think thats its good option ? -.-
It’s working just fine so yes, it’s a good solution in my opinion.
What’s wrong with it in your opinion ?
So much stuff for just simple MY HOME AUTOMATION. Blynk V1 just all in same screen.
Just my opinion, but life gets so much simpler when you use Node-Red and MQTT for home automation projects, with Blynk as your front-end system.
You can have as many devices on one Blynk screen as you want (up to the limits imposed by your subscription), and it makes Alexa/Google integration easier too.
