How do you advocate monitoring and controlling 100 like devices? The Device Selector Widget?
I see the Device Tiles Widget as the crown jewel of the Blynk app. Without the Device Tiles Widget (and to a lesser extent the Device Selector Widget), I don’t see Blynk as a viable IoT solution. It’s an outstanding dashboard for a single device (or a handful of bridged devices). However, it’s not clear how you’d manage hundreds of devices without these widgets.
As critical as it is to a Blynk IoT solution, the Device Tiles Widget is a major oversimplification. It’s only capable of displaying a single numeric value. Let’s take the most basic example … 100 devices capable of monitoring temperature and humidity. You need to click on 100 device tiles in order to view the temperature and humidity for all of the devices. This doesn’t make sense. The Device Tiles Widget should be able to convey all of the key attributes for all of the devices without having to click on a Device Tile. If you need to drill down into more detail for a particular device (such as a histogram of the temperature and humidity), you can click on a Device Tile to view the device dashboard.
You have a much better grasp on Blynk than I do. Please educate me in terms of how you’d manage hundreds of like devices, each with many key properties.
