We are excited to announce that today (June 28th) at 6pm EST, Blynk's new pricing plans will become available for sign up in Blynk.Consoleand soon also in the mobile apps.
The new plans are truly game-changing for small businesses and startups looking to build a world-class IoT solution without a heavy investment. The new pricing model also maintains Blynk as an unparalleled offering for the larger companies that want to focus on their core products and not on building IoT software. And of course, our developer community gets access to the powerful new functionality with the free or Plus plans tailored for personal projects. You can see exactly how this all works on our pricing page here.
Every plan, including Free, has all the core Blynk products you need to prototype and deploy IoT projects - Blynk.Apps, Blynk.Console, Blynk. Cloud and Blynk.Edgent (the new hardware library). And no matter which plan you are on, you can also access the new killer features like Over-the-air updates (Blynk.Air) and built-in Wifi provisioning (Blynk.Inject).
Below you can see a concise summary of how the plans differ, what we are offering to the users who purchased Energy in the Blynk legacy app and how you can unlock 5 additional devices for FREE!
The new Blynk offers 4 core plans. FREE and PLUS plans are there for developers and hobbyists, while PRO and White Label plans are tailored for businesses at different stages of their IoT journey.
The Free plan is your perfect way to explore the new platform, to start working on an early prototype of your product or build a simple personal project. It has a limit of one device and if you need to add more, you can do so by upgrading to a higher plan or by adding more devices with a one-time per device fee of $4.99. The great things about the device activation fee is that it allows to keep your devices working even if your subscription is no longer active (that was a big ask from our community).
1 free device
Additional devices at $4.99/ one time fee
5 users that can access devices based on a set of permissions
Basic set of widgets
Access to Blynk.Cloud with 1 week of historical data storage
PLUS USD $4.99 /month when billed yearly
If you have a more advanced personal project and would like to have more devices and users, PLUS is for you. It unlocks access to 40+ PRO widgets and adds voice control for your devices using Alexa and Google Home (coming soon), gives you longer data storage and allows to export your data. And just like in the Free plan, you can add even more devices on top of the 10 included ones with a $4.99 one-time per device fee with lifetime device support.
10 free devices
Voice assistants (Alexa, Google Home), coming soon
3 months of historical data storage
Data export to CSV
If you are looking to build your commercial IoT solution on Blynk, you’ll first need to decide whether you need your own, standalone mobile apps with your company name and branding (your clients won’t know that it’s built on Blynk) or if you are fine having your clients download and use Blynk apps to control your devices. The first option is offered with our White Label plans and the second can be achieved with PRO.
PRO USD $41 /month when billed yearly
PRO plan allows you to unlock the full potential of Blynk platform for your startup or small business if you don't necessarily need a standalone app with your company name and branding (check out White Label plans for ways to get your own app). You can invite new users - whether it's your clients or your employees - to control your devices via Blynk.App, manage who can see and do what in the platform via roles and permissions, create and manage multiple sub-organizations, oversee your fleet of devices, do over-the-air firmware updates, and so much more. You can start with the base PRO plan includes 20 users or choose an option with more user seats.
40 free devices
Unlimited additional devices at $4.99/ one time
20 free users
Ability to upgrade to PRO plans with more users
Client management features (eg. sub-organizations)
12 months data storage
Adding users via email invites
If you are planning to sell an off-the-shelf product, you will also soon be able to purchase Discovery add-on to your PRO plan to allow users to activate your products by themselves (no email invite needed). We will publish a separate post on that very soon!
White Label from $599 /month when billed yearly
White Label plans are for you if you are looking to build a standalone IoT solution with your own private server, your company branding (name, logo, URL, etc) and your own branded apps published to the App Store and Google Play. You can choose from one of the three pricing options below depending on which platforms you would like to include - web, iOS, Android or all of them. As a White Label client, you also get a dedicated Blynk support engineer to help you launch your offering.
Private business server
Web IoT portal only: $599/month
Web IoT portal + 1 App: $999/month
Web IoT portal+ iOS + Android: $1,299/month
Where do I go to sign up for a plan?
In Blynk.Console, go to Organization Settings -> Billing -> choose your plan there.
Bought Energy in the legacy Blynk app?
Users who purchased Energy in Blynk legacy app prior to the new platform launch will get 5 FREE additional devices ($25 value) and 50% off annual PLUS of PRO plan. We will be sending out emails with instructions on how to use the discount.
How can I get 5 FREE additional devices?
If you activate at least one device on the new Blynk before July 25th, you will be eligible for 5 FREE additional devices. These bonus devices will automatically show up on your account on or before July 25th (not immediately after the activation of your first device). Active device means that it has been online and has sent at least one message to our server. Hurry up and follow this guide to activate your first device!
