These system Blynk and MQTT are very easy to use with every hardware which has Internet connection and each one provides great opportunities. We use them for our projects and for our clients we developed same Blynk examples with them.
The Blynk system contains two thinks:
- hardware device;
- mobile application.
Your hardware device is connected with Blynk server through Internet and your mobile application is connected with Blynk server also Internet. See picture above. It provides very simple communication between mobile application and your hardware device.
