Introduction: Simplest IoT LED Control With Arduino & Blynk

Picture of Simplest IoT LED Control With Arduino & Blynk

Here is my first experience making IoT project (Internet of Things) in simplest way, only with an Arduino board (I used Genuino 101, you can use any boards) & Blynk app on Android. See the demo & tutorial below, hope you enjoy it.

Step 1: Demonstration

Step 2: Tutorial


Please wait for its fully instructables. It's my first time here & I'm trying to make it complete as soon as possible. Thank you very much.

matur nuwun ^_^

wow, impressive. But I thought Genuino 101 don't have Wifi capability ?

Lintang_Wisesa (author)Vincent192016-08-20

yes, you're right. Just plug in it on your connected PC and open blynk-ser batch file on blynk library. you can also use any Arduino board: Uno, Mega, etc without ESP or ethernet shield ^_^

But what is the concept behind of it to control the Arduino 101 ? Through PC WiFi ? Serial ?

Lintang_Wisesa (author)Vincent192016-08-20

Yes, Serial USB. I made my genuino 101 goes online by plugging in to my laptop, which is connected to the internet (via WiFi, LAN or whatever). So my 101 also connected.

Oh cool ! So IOT too with the help from laptop as host. You can try edison too through BLE :)

Lintang_Wisesa (author)Vincent192016-08-20

no need to change anything. yes right, blynk supports any boards ^_^

Vincent19 (author)Lintang_Wisesa2016-08-20

No need to change COM Port ?

Lintang_Wisesa (author)Vincent192016-08-21

open the blynk-ser & type the port, eg: COM4. the default is COM1.

Vincent19 (author)Lintang_Wisesa2016-08-23

Got it. thanks.

Vincent19 (author)Lintang_Wisesa2016-08-20

Do I need to change anything in the blynk-ser batch file ? Actually what does this batch file does ?
