This chapter shows you how to install and configure a personal Blynk server on Raspberry Pi.
With this architecture, you can directly connect your hardware (that is, your Raspberry Pi) to the machine running the Blynk server through a network (whether an intranet or the internet) without using a third-party Blynk cloud.
In this chapter, you will learn about the following:
- Installing Java on Raspberry Pi
- Installing a Blynk personal server on Raspberry Pi
- Configuring the server
- Creating a Blynk app to connect with a personal Blynk server
You can run the Blynk personal server on Windows and Mac operating systems. The installation instructions can be found at https://github.com/blynkkk/blynk-server#blynk-server.
