How many devices can I add to a Blink system? Ten per Sync Module. Blink Video Doorbell, Wired Floodlight and Mini cameras manage their own individual systems, or can be added to Sync Module-managed systems as one of its ten devices.
You can’t use it to record live view, but all motion-triggered alerts will be saved locally and can be accessed at any time through the Blink app. If you don’t have the Sync Module 2, then you’ll either have to rely on only getting notifications and having live view, or subscribe to one of the Blink plans.
All Blink cameras and devices work with the Sync Module 2. The Blink Wired Floodlight, Video Doorbell, Outdoor, Indoor (3rd Gen), and Mini cameras can store clips with the Sync Module 2 when it has a recognized USB drive inserted. This is called Local Storage.
The Sync Module manages communications between your Blink devices and our secure servers; therefore your camera needs to connect to its local Wi-Fi. The Blink Mini, Video Doorbell, and Wired Floodlight do not require Sync Modules for those communications, which is why they broadcast their own local Wi-Fi connections.
