Homebridge-blynk issues


#1

@Dmitriy, I see you have forked and made some pull requests for the homebridge-blynk repo.

I’ve installed Homebridge, connected via the app and all that.

But im having problems with the link between the action on the phone, and Blynk.
It verifies a connection to the accessory, and siri turns on Lamp 1 etc as per the example… but cant get anything to trigger in Blynk.

I am testing using a remote switch I created a while back.

The relay is on GPIO14/D5 and I have a SWITCH button widget on V1.

This is my config.js

{
    "bridge": {
        "name": "Homebridge",
        "username": "CC:22:3D:E3:CE:30",
        "port": 51826,
        "pin": "031-45-154"
    },
    
    "description": "This is an example configuration file. You can use this as a template for creating your own configuration file.",

    "platforms": [
            {
            "platform": "Blynk",
            "name": "Blynk",
            "server": "192.168.1.2",
            "httpsPort": "9443",
            "token" : "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
			"dashboardName": "REMOTE SWITCHES",
            "accessories": [
            	{
                    "name": 		"SwitchV1",
                    "widget":		"Switch",
                    "mode": 		"SWITCH",
                    "caption": 		"Lamp 1",
                    "pin": 			"V1"
            	}
            ]
        }
    ],
    "accessories": [
    ]
}

Here are some logs:

Anything in there telling you what the problem is?


#2

Hmm is it something to do with the following being commented out in index.js?

BlynkPlatform.prototype.hardwareWrite = function(pinString, value) {
	/*var pinType = pinString.substr(0,1).toLowerCase();
	var pin = pinString.substr(1);
	var that = this;
	this.blynkServer.hardware(this.dashboard.id, pinType, "w", pin, value ? 1 : 0)
	.catch(function (err) {
		that.log("There was a problem sending hardware write command on: " + pinString);
	});*/
};

#3

Can’t answer you right now. I haven’t use it for a while.


#4

@Dmitriy this issue is still open in Github, any way to resolve it? Would be great to have Blynk work with iOS!
Also, since we can specify an API token, why can’t the local homebridge connect to the online blynk server?


#5

I don’t know. I’m not the maintainer of this plugin and have no time to look into it.

@jaspinder1 Really old topic :wink: Please note the time date stamps before posting, Thanks.
