Introduction: Control Led All Over the World Using Internet Using Arduino
I am Rithik. We are going to make an internet controlled led using your phone.
we are going to use software like Arduino IDE and Blynk.
It is simple and if you succeeded you can control as many electronic components you want
Things We Need:
some jumper wires
let's start our Project
Step 1: Connection
Step 2: Setting Blynk
Now We are going to Set up Blynk
Download and Install the Blynk app
Create an account in your email (Make sure you have access to the mail because you will receive auth token)
Click Create New Project
Write a name for your project and select board as NodeMCU, hen you will see a new box appearing at last, select Wifi in that. Then select create
After you create you will see a new window shows "auth token have sent to your email" Just Click ok
You will see a clear window, click anywhere in the window and you will see a column right side select button in that and place anywhere click on the button and you will see a new window you will see a "Button" Below the picture. Type there a name like LED and you will see "Pin" click there and select D4, then change "Push to switch" then go back that all you need
Note: For more Clear tutorial for the Blynk set up Please Download and watch the Video Below
Step 3: Code NodeMCU
Install Arduino from the link below or if you are in Windows 10 just install it from Microsoft store
Download library below :
unzip the library
Go to sketch => include Zip => select the library we Downloaded.
It should show you at the bottom that "Library is added"
Start Arduino and open Preferences window.Enter http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266... into Additional Board Manager
then close the window
Then go to Tools =>boards=>Boards Manager and type in the search box ESP8266 and install the board
Now go to Tools=>Boards=>and select NodeMCU and also go to connect the NodeMCU with your micro USB
Now go to Tools=>Ports and select the only option.
Now go to the link and copy and paste in Arduino IDE
In the code, you enter your auth token which you received from blynk in your email (paste the auth token in your auth token)
Now enter Wifi Name and Password in the place where it shows wifi name and wifi password
then You will see a right-pointing arrow in the top right corner that means upload click on that (make sure your NodeMCU is connected to your laptop)
Step 4: Final Step
Now open Blynk and you will see a rotated triangle or play button in right side corner click on that
Now click the Button your led should Glow
Now you are done The Tutorial
