Using Blynk with the Imp


#1

I notice Electric Imp is a partner with Blynk but I cannot find any instructions on how to use the service with Electric Imp. Does anyone know how to interface the 2?

Turns out it’s not that easy; Blynk expects the device to be able to open a raw socket to their service, over which they send and receive binary packets.

This is unlikely to ever be supported; websockets are likely from the agent, but a raw socket could be abused too much (and isn’t easily traceable as there are no headers).

I suspect they listed us without actually trying it…
