Hello! I’ve been experimenting with Blynk in order to gauge suitability for a new project I am working on and I’m looking for suggestions on how to make a feature work. I have a device that uses Blynk for control and status and also takes images periodically with the goal of saving them, creating time lapses, etc. I would like to upload these to some sort of cloud storage for archiving. Ideally I would not have to do much to manage this, so I was thinking users of my device could enter their google drive or dropbox credentials into their device and it would be able to push the photos there, but upon investigating this it looks like it is a bit harder to do than that since those sites require OAuth 2 login, which seems a bit heavy for a IoT device. Another option I was thinking of that would be super cool would be if Blynk could integrate with AWS S3 buckets or some other file storage service and then also provide a viewer for it. I’ve looked at the image gallery objects and those could possibly be made to work somehow but I’m not quite sure how exactly. Could I maybe have the device publish to an S3 bucket and add the Blynk AUTHTOKEN to the image name so that they can be found?
I love all the features that Blynk provides and it does a great job at making the control and data interface with my product, but it would be really complete if it could also do the media viewing portion. I’m open to all ideas on how to make this work! I appreciate and suggestions the community has. Thanks!
