Compatibility

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.
