Project Description

This tutorial explains how to use Blynk which can receive sensor data and send a control signal.  Blynk is a Platform with iOS and Android apps to control Arduino, Raspberry Pi and the likes over the Internet. It’s a digital dashboard where you can build a graphic interface for your project by simply dragging and dropping widgets

Getting Started

Hardware:  Android smartphone (the awesome new Oppo R7+) for control, and a Freetronics EtherTen connected to a modem/router:

Arduino+Ethernet combinations, such as an Arduino Uno with an Ethernet shield can be alternatively used.

First, download the app for a mobile phone  – click here for the links. Then from the same page, download the Arduino library – and install it like you would any other Arduino library.
