A little background on the situation, i have an aquarium in my retreat cabin and i’m planning to have the fishes fed automatically via scheduler and/or by push of a button. Before this, my fishes are fed using timed auto feeder but sometimes the fishes don’t eat so much. My cabin has wifi running on mobile data mainly for cctv however the internet transmission is not so good
I’ve achieved this easily using blynk auto program with my (nodemcu + relay and bypassed auto feeder) +blynk timer. But failing to plan is planning to fail. The internet connection is not so good there, so if the device dc for any reason, my fishes would not get their food as blynk timer relies on internet connection.
I’ve read TaskScheduler but it only runs on schedule, i would like to have a function for push button feeding. So i was thinking of using TaskScheduler and use blynk input fields to set the timer. Maybe assigning vpin for the field and that device would take the value and plug it into the TaskScheduler. That way, i can still use blynk to control my fish feeder.
Is this workable or is there any other option for using blynk?
