  • for BLYNK

You can use the free (if you only use it for 1 WLED light) IoT cloud Blynk to control your WLED Lights with the beautiful Blynk app for Android and iOS!

With Blynk, you can also even control your lights when you are not connected to your home network!

Installation

You can use the sync button in Blynk to sync other WLED ESPs, just like with the web UIs!

Note regarding ESP01:
ESP01 with 512k flash no longer supports Alexa, Blynk or Hue sync interfaces. If you use them, please do not update.
ESP01 with 1MB flash either supports OTA updates OR the above interfaces, just choose the respective binary.
From the next version onward, it will very likely be impossible to maintain 512k ESP01 support.
ESP01 1M will stay supported, although OTA updates will not be possible.
To get the most out of WLED, I highly recommend you to upgrade to a board with 4MB flash.
