With Blynk it's easy to create a device prototype, generate AuthToken and flash it to the hardware for testing purposes. But how does this process scale up when you are deploying thousands of devices for end-customers?
From the very beginning, we made it just as easy to deploy commercial WiFi devices. They can get an AuthToken from Blynk.App during the WiFi provisioning process. You can read all about how it works here
However, for non-WiFi devices, like cellular or wired devices ( 3G, 4G, LTE, Ethernet, etc.) the process is quite different. Two things have to happen to make it work:
- Device should be authenticated in the Blynk.Cloud. A valid AuthToken is required for that.
- Device should get an actual owner (end-user) and should be assigned to a certain organization.
Fortunately, with the new feature we are introducing today, putting cellular, wired, and other non-WiFi devices into your customer's hands has been made extremely easy.
