Controlling LED on Maker pHAT Using Raspberry Pi and Blynk

Always do Blynk with Arduino? How about Raspberry Pi?

INTRODUCTION

Blynk is a popular Internet of Things platform with a drag-n-drop mobile application builder that allows to visualize sensor data and control electronics remotely. This week we will show you how to control LED on Maker pHAT using Raspberry Pi and Blynk.

VIDEO

This video will show you how to control LED on Maker pHAT using Raspberry Pi and Blynk app. We used python library for programming.

HARDWARE PREPARATION

Sample Program

This code will allow you to control LED on Maker pHAT (Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pin) using Blynk app. Please replace YourAuthToken to your Blynk token.

from gpiozero import LED
import BlynkLib
import time
led1 = LED(25)
BLYNK_AUTH = 'YourAuthToken'
# Initialize Blynk
blynk = BlynkLib.Blynk(BLYNK_AUTH)
# Register Virtual Pins
@blynk.VIRTUAL_WRITE(1)
def my_write_handler(value):
print('Current V1 value: {}'.format(value[0]))
if int(format(value[0])) == 1:
led1.on()
else:
led1.off()
try:
while True:
blynk.run()
except KeyboardInterrupt:
sys.exit(0)
