Hi Blynk user community!
I’m Kris - an engineer at Stringify. We recently met with @Pavel to see what Blynk and Stringify users could create together!
Stringify is a cloud-to-cloud IoT automation platform that allows you to create very powerful automations… “If I arrive home, only if it’s after sunset, only if … [unlimited number of only if conditions], THEN turn on my Hue lights, THEN start a 10 minute timer, THEN turn them back off”. That’s just a small example - we offer math functions, variables (increment a variable, then if an variable < 5, do X), etc.
We support Nest, Hue, Wink, SmartThings, Insteon, and dozens of other physical things and digital services.
So… how do you integrate Blynk with Stringify?
- Stringify offers the Connect:Maker thing. This will allow you to send an HTTP GET/POST to Stringify to trigger a flow, and we will send an HTTP GET/POST/PUT as an action - note these requests come from the cloud.
- We’ve got a nodejs module that is designed to run on a Raspberry Pi (or anything else that runs nodejs). This includes three “plugins” - one that can set/get RPI GPIO pins, another that will send text-to-speech over the RPI’s speaker, and a third ‘generic template’ that you can use to connect to anything! This module is still in beta and currently is only available by sending me a message (alternatively I can give you a full RPI image). Prior to making this request, I recommend people download Stringify and familiarize themselves with basic flow building, the concept of AND/OR in flows, etc. Links to our app can be found on our web site.
