I am very new to Blynk - but love it.
I working on a simple NodeMCU board with a couple relays and LEDs - to control a hot water recirculation pump.
The project is coming along fine - my question is more logistically. Once I have this done - I want to make 2-3 more for family members. There are two aspects that I am uncertain of currently.
How do I get the App to family members?
a) Sharing is for MY hardware. This is not a good thing :-).
b) Clone is a snapshot - but if I understand the other person needs an account with sufficient Energy - so it makes them a “developer” and then they could change/break it. Again not a good thing.
c) Is there another alternative
Authorization code entry. How do i get it into a device when it is “at their end”?
a) Is there any method to start up Blynk on the hardware (maybe with a test authorization) and have it load/store the official authorization?
b) I could use the Server Mode and create a web-page to support entry - but that could have its own challenges.
I thought of doing the CLONE to myself (assume that works) and i can use my Energy to build it - but then what? Share it? Well then I have a bunch of copies on my account.
Build multiple accounts - CLONE it over - get the Authorization code - modify the H/W - then give the family member the account info? But we are back that they are in developer mode again.
Bottom line - is there anything similar to a real - real small business model without publishing (i.e. manually providing things)?
Side note - everyone is iOS based in case that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance
