4. First Install

      4.3. Connect to Cloud

    The controller must know your WIFI credentials (name and password) to connect to the cloud. This process called provisioning is done mainly with the app. Here is how it goes.

A) Controller

Step 1 : enter SETUP mode in the controller.
Look around for the button and press it with the provided needle.

Step 2 : Enter provisioning mode.
Select SET credentials by pressing knob button.

Press again to enter provisioning mode.

    In this mode, the controller is broadcasting a WIFI access-point named Blynk-XXXX (XXXX being a random value).
Now activate WIFI in your phone/tablet but do not connect to the access-point yet. It will be done via the app.

B) App

Step 1 : Enter provisioning mode.

Add new device

Connect to WIFI

Start

Notes:

  • Please ignore generic instruction (no blinking)
  • Check that the controller is still ‘waiting for credentials’

     

Continue

Step 2 : Connect to access-point.

Step 3 : Enter your WIFI name and password.

Important: The controller is compatible 2.4GHz only (most common).

Device configuration is usually fast (<10s).
Provisioning is then complete.

Note: If configuration is stuck (rare), cancel and repeat from step 1.

The controller is now visible in the main page:

You can now access your device.
