I’m running Blynk on an ESP8266 with micropython that controls my garage door opener. I am using my local Blynk server. I want to be able to have an app/project for family members to control the door, but it MUST be a different app from mine so “sharing” is not a solution. Picture a “basic” app and a “superuser” app. There are several reasons for this - more limited control, time consraints, fewer features in the app, the ability for my app to enable disable different users, etc.
I tried copying the auth key into another users con fig file on my server, but it won’t allow shared control with the same key.
I am able to run two blynk.run() calls in my main loop with two different keys on the ESP and this works, but I suspect I am using more ram than is needed, and it seems a little kludgy.
Is there a way I can run a “virtual” device on my server and have it bridge over to my ESP - or bridge the two server objects (or whatever they are called), so that my family members can have an app that talkes to the virtual device which then bridges a request over to the ESP to open the door?
