How to add users and give them access to your devices (Plus or PRO plan)
Now that you are familiar with the key concepts, let's help you start sharing devices with additional users.
In order to allow someone to control your devices using Blynk, they will first need to get registered in Blynk. If it's an existing client, you may have their email address already, and if it's someone purchasing your device online, you could ask for their email address at the checkout stage.
Device sharing is handled with the following permissions:
- View Organization Devices
- Control Organization Devices
- View Own Devices
- Control Own Devices
Free and Plus users have limited control over permission settings, while PRO users have full flexibility to change permissions at the most granular level.
At the moment (until the Discovery Add-on is available) you have two ways to share the device with other users:
- Invite the user to your organization
- Create a sub-organization (available only for the PRO users), invite the user to the sub-organization and transfer the device into this sub-organization
In both cases, the user can provision the device by him- or herself after they have been invited to the organization or sub-organization.
Discovery Add-on to PRO plan will allow to skip the email invitation altogether. Any user will be able to download the Blynk app and activate the device based on the manufacturer's instructions.
