HowTo: Register Pushbullet API Key

Pushbullet is a free and easy way to receive push messages on your smartphone or computer from many sources like NodeRed or Arduinos. Pushbullet provides an API code so you can access Pushbullet’s features through other devices such as an Arduino, RasberryPi or NodeRed. How to request this is described in the following article.

Create a pushbullet account

If you do not have a Pushbullet account yet you have to create an account at “Create” in this case only means that you have to log in with a Google or Facebook account. Which type of account you choose does not matter.

To log in you have to choose between logging in with your Google or Facebook login data.

Request pushbullet API code

After logging in, the API code is just a few clicks away.

Click on the bottom left on “Settings” …
… and then on “Create Access Token”.
In the black-framed area a code consisting of letters, numbers and characters appears. This is your API code.

You can now copy and paste this code into your NodeRed configuration or your Arduino code to send Pushbullet messages to your devices.

An example to send pushbullet messages via NodeRed can be found in the article NodeRed – Send pushbullet messages at events

Have fun with the project

I hope everything worked as described. If not or you have any other questions or suggestions, please let me know in the comments. Also, ideas for new projects are always welcome. 🙂

P.S. Many of these projects - especially the hardware projects - cost a lot of time and money. Of course I do this because I enjoy it, but if you appreciate it that I share these information with you, I would be happy about a small donation to the coffee box. 🙂
