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.
Step 1: Press and hold the reset button on the side of the Sync Module until the LED blinks red. Step 2: Release the button and wait for the LED to blink green and blue. Step 3: The Sync Module is now in set up mode. Step 4: Delete the Sync Module from your Blink app.

How far away can camera units be placed? Under normal circumstances, the Sync Module is capable of communicating with Blink cameras up to 100 ft. away in any direction. We recommend keeping the Sync Module near your wireless router for the best signal strength.
