Blynk is an easy to use app builder that allows users to add a variety of buttons, sliders, graphical displays and even RGB controllers to their phone. The SparkFun Blynk Board is specially designed to work with the 'widgets' within the Blynk mobile app to create your next IoT project. Monitor local weather conditions, control LEDs from your phone, even send a tweet when it's time to water your plants!

The SparkFun IoT Starter Kit with Blynk Board is a great way to gain a solid introduction to the world of Internet of Things (IoT) technology without any difficult programming. With this kit you will be able to get your Blynk Board connected and, by utilizing the pre-loaded projects, use diverse set of components to build an array of web- and phone-connected projects.

Every Blynk Board comes fully programmed and also includes a Blynk subscription code card (15k Energy at a $10 value), which will be needed to connect the Blynk Board to your Blynk account. Simply connect to a Wi-Fi signal and you are ready to use this starter kit! Getting started with your Blynk Board and getting it connected to the Blynk App on your iOS or Android device is a breeze. Once you've played with the ZeRGBa (a festively coloured zebra ‘widget’ that can change the colour of the on-board RGB LED) checkout our step-by-step project guide with detailed images on how to add and control the large selection of widgets within Blynk.

The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone with a drive to learn more about Blynk and its uses. So if you are looking for a new challenge or a way to get in on the IoT craze, check out the SparkFun IoT Starter Kit with Blynk Board!

Note: The Blynk app is compatible with iDevices running iOS 7.0+, and Android's running any version above or equal to 4.0.

Note: Customers who initially order this Starter Kit may receive a white USB wall wart instead of the one listed below and seen in the image above. The included wall wart will be capable of 5V and 1A regardless of what it looks like.
