Introduction: Internet of Things: Arduino + Blynk
Recently there is quite a swing with the term Internet of things. Wouldn't it be nice if you can control your appliances with your smartphone.
Lets get started.
Step 1: Link for the Video
Step 2: Part Lists.
The part list for this project is super simple.
All you need is a Arduino,A led,A computer with internet acess and the Blynk app.
1.Arduino UNO: http://goo.gl/PtbMll
2.5mm Led: http://goo.gl/PtbMll
Arduino UNO: https://goo.gl/yCtodB
Arduino UNO: http://goo.gl/hf3Qki
Step 3: Connections and Test
1.Connect one end of the usb to your arduino and the other to the computer having internet access.
2.Insert the led to Digital pin 13 as shown.(The shorter one is the cathode and goes to ground)
3.Install the Blynk app from google play store or app store.
4.Download the Blynk library from the link given.
5.Extract the zip file into Arduino's library folder.
6.Now open the Arduino software,go to examples--->Blynk---->Boards_USB_serial--->Arduino_USB_serial
7.Enter the Authentication token from your email and then hit upload.
8.Go back to the Blynk library folder and under script open the windows batch file
9.Enter the COM port your Arduino is connected to.
Note:Make sure you do not close the command window.
*Now you are ready to blynk*
Step 4: Success
I hope you liked this project.
Stay connected for more videos and I'll see you next week.
