Software apps and online services
- Download the Blynk app from google play store
- Sign in using a valid E-mail address
- Create a new project
- Give a project name and choose NodeMCU from choose devicedropdown list.
- Then choose Wi-Fi from connection type dropdown list and press Create.
- An Auth Token will be generated and send to the E-mail address which you signed in.
- Copy and save the Auth Token somewhere safe, We will use it in the next step DO NOT share it, anyone who is having it can control your device.
- Now click on the "+" symbol to add widgets, then add a Button. Now you can see a button will be added to the dashboard.
- Click on the Button widget from the dashboard to edit the button settings.
- Now from the settings choose the pin which you want to control, I'm choosing digital pin D5
- Change the ON state to 0 and OFF state to 1, by default ON will be 1 ie HIGH and OFF will be 0 ie LOW. We are doing this because Our relay will turn ON on LOW and turn OFF on HIGH.
- Change the mode to switch instead of push.
We are going to program NodeMCU with Arduino IDE.
open node mcu blynk code File In Arduino IDE.
- Then paste the AuthToken generated from Blynk app to the Blynk Arduino sketch.
- Type your WiFi SSID and Password also to the Blynk Arduino sketch, where it is mentioned.

Either you can use IFTTT website to IFTTT mobile app to create Applets. Here I'm using IFTTT website
Before start create IFTTT applet we need to create two HTTP request links, one for turning ON the relay and one for turning OFF the relay.
- The 184.108.40.206 is the IP address of blynk server.
- You need to replace your blynk Auth Token, where it is mentioned in the request link.
- D14 is the pin which we have connected our relay, actually, we have connected relay to the D5 pin of NodeMCU but here in the HTTP request link we need to address the GPIO pin number, so the GPIO pin number for physical pin D5 is D14.
- When we call value=0 it will make the pin D5 LOW, the relay is ON.
- When we call value=1 it will make the pin D5 HIGH, the relay is OFF
- Go to www.ifttt.com then login using your account or signup if you don't have an account.
- Then under applets tab click on new applets button.
- Now, click on the +this button.
- Then choose a service page will open.
- From "choose a service" page, search for Amazon Alexa and click on it.
- Then "choose trigger" page will open.
- From "choose trigger" page click on Say Specific phrase.
- Now Write A sentence you want to say to alexa for light on
- and click create trigger button.
- Now, choose +that button.
- Then like before, search for webhooks and click on it.
- Now from "choose action" click on Make a web request.
- and fill the details as shown below.
- URL: In this filed paste the HTTP request link which is created before, don't forget to edit the URL with your blynk Auth Token.
- Method: From the drop-down list choose GET.
- Content/Type: Choose text/plain from the dropdown list.
- Body: Leave it blank.
- Now, Click Create action Button.
- Now we have successfully created an applet for turning the relay ON.
- like the same way, we need to create another applet for turning OFF the relay.
- Paste the HTTP request URL for turning OFF the relay, that is the value=1.
- and click on create action button.
Now we have Successfully created Applets for both Relay ON and Relay OFF.
and simply say" Turn on light".
NOW USING amazon alexa you can turn on/off your Home Applications in this project I connect two LED You can also connect More Devices based on your requirement so u create more applets.
