Well I used to consider myself somewhat intelligent, but after clicking around the Blynk IO site and getting started pages… I have rendered myself totally stupid and useless.
I find links for different pricing, the instructions for code examples pointing to the old builder page for blynk 1.0.
I give high regard for anyone else who get a working example 2.0. One of the reasons i was an early dumper of the Cayenne “my devices” was the documentation.
If anyone feels pity for me i would be eternally grateful for a working template for ESP-wroom.

Do you want to use the Dynamic WiFi provisioning and Blynk’s OTA features (Blynk.Air)?

If so, then use this:

If not, then all you need to do is add two lines to the beginning of your old Blynk Legacy sketch, which contain the Template ID and Device Name, which are shown when you create your first template in the Blynk IoT web dashboard.


Thanks Pete…
Struggling also with adding hardware… the documentation points to the 2.0 app and power on the device… the desktop app points you to 3 options …I dont have a qr code for the device and the other options are useless. Under the template to add devices i selected esp32 but doesn’t change the firmware code window. Somehow I was able to generate a key… but for the life of me cant figure how.

Are you wanting to do static or dynamic provisioning?


Pete…Your super… I was successful in activating an esp32 dev device…I will save the fancy stuff for later.
I guess the documentation just seems daunting. I used to bang something together with wemos d1 mini or arduino in a matter of seconds with my own blynk server (which i have used for a very long time). I appreciate someone pointing the way without any attitude or malice. Im hoping to use my own blynk server for a few more years but will definitely adding a subscription to new blynk for any future developments. Maybe that is the solution for the fence sitters… let them use the legacy version without support, but demonstrate the value of upgrading to New Blynk, taking advantage of Alexa and without fear of opening ports on your own network to achieve global access. I cant tell you how many i have been hack or flooded with open ports… I wont even begin to describe the hell with port 5060 with my freepbx.
