NEW Blynk IoT Platform library implementation for Node-RED
Warning: FOR TESTING ONLY
This library is in beta, it is not stable yet!!
Do not use for production
Node-RED <-> Blynk IoT Platform
This library supports both secure TLS connection to new Blynk IoT Platform cloud server.
For Blynk cloud server, you can use blynk.cloud as the server url.
Local server is not yet supported.
Do not work on old Blynk 0.1 legacy platform
If you installed Node Red globally use this command to install
npm install --global node-red-contrib-blynk-iot
Supported events, commands and widgets
Events: read, write, app (connected/disconected)
Commands: write, sync (virtual/all), set property
Widgets: LCD, zeRGBa, styled button, image gallery
See the changelog for all the details of each releases
Blynk App Settings
Use Raspberry PI as hardware to access 256 virtual pins or Generic Board for 32.
How to use
Set your blynk server url, Auth Token and Template ID in configuration node
See help panel on every nodes
Use the verbose
-v flag when starting Node-RED to get more information
node-red-log and enable log on Configuration Node as needed
This library is not retrocompatible and cannot replace node-red-contrib-blynk-ws.
The new Blynk IoT platform does not allow migration from the old Blynk 0.1 (legacy), so neither does this library.
What is Blynk?
Blynk provides iOS and Android apps to control any hardware over the Internet or directly using Bluetooth. You can easily build graphic interfaces for all your projects by simply dragging and dropping widgets, right on your smartphone. Blynk is the most popular IoT platform used by design studios, makers, educators, and equipment vendors all over the world.
Blynk Arduino Library
Optionally you can install Blynk Local Server and run everything locally. However, Blynk Cloud is free for anyone who is using Blynk for personal (non-commercial) use.

Quickstart: Arduino + Ethernet shield
- Download the Blynk app (App Store, Google Play)
- Get the Auth Token from the app
- Import this library to Arduino IDE. Guide here
- In Arduino IDE, select File -> Examples -> Blynk -> Boards_Ethernet -> Arduino_Ethernet
- Update Auth Token in the sketch and upload it to Arduino
- Connect your Arduino with Ethernet shield to the internet
Please find examples on how to use different types of connections (transports) and how to do make something great with Blynk. You can easily apply any type of board/connection to all examples.
