Updating Vpin/Widget with API

Hi, I want to update a widget on Blynk from an outside source, specifically the Qingping Air Monitor (https://www.qingping.co/air-monitor/overview).

They have an API (https://developer.qingping.co/main/guide/snow) which can be used.

How do I do this on the new Blynk dashboard?

I apologize if this is super simple!

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Hey there, check this out :

Looking at that API, I think you’re going to have to run a device (a NodeMCU or ESP32) which makes an API call to the device then parses the data and pushes it to the Blynk app.

This is very similar to some of the weather API examples that are well documented on this forum.

Pete.

Thanks Pete. That’s helps.

I was hoping there was a way to update a datastream directly without going through a third party. Even if it is a PRO level feature.
