Setting up a Local Blynk server for secure home automation

In this workshop, we will set up a local Blynk server on a Raspberry PI 3 board which does not require any internet connection. We will use a simple wifi modem to set up the networking between the IoT hardware, local blynk server in the Raspberry Pi and the smartphone.

Date: 14th February 2020
Time: 11:00 AM to 01:30 PM
Venue: Workshop Hall A, KTPO Trade Centre, Bangalore.
Fee: Rs. 2,999/- (Limited seats available)

Objective of the workshop

In this workshop, we will set up a local Blynk server on a Raspberry PI 3 board which does not require any internet connection. We will use a Nodemcu based IoT hardware to control a relay and a DHT22 temperature and humidity sensor that sends data to the blynk interface in the smartphone. We will use a simple wifi modem to set up the networking between the IoT hardware, local blynk server in the Raspberry Pi and the smartphone. The solution is intended for implementing a secure local IoT home automation system without connecting the devices to the internet cloud. A recommended workshop for software developers, startups, students with IT background, System Architects, SMEs and Executives.

Pre-Requisites for Course

  • Laptop with Arduino IDE 1.8 and all libraries for nodemcu, blynk and DHT22 sensor pre-installed and tested. ( Its a bring your own device )
  • Raspberry Pi 3 board with Raspbian loaded in SDcard.
  • A wifi modem – we use a Belkin G wireless router model: F6d7234-4-h v5
  • ( can use any other wifi modem if you know how to setup it for static IP )
    A NodeMcu device fixed on a breadboard with an leds anode connected to GPIO12 (D6) using a 4.7k resistor and cathode to ground, and a DHT22 temperature and humidity sensors data pin connected to nodemcu GPIO14 (D5)
