To the right of your camera’s serial number, you’ll see a switch that says “REC. LED” with two positions, “ON” and “OFF”. 3. Using tweezers or a similar tool, slide that switch to the off position (toward the top of the camera).
The Photo Capture feature is turned on and off in the Camera Settings > Video and Photo Settings screen. Tap the Photo Capture setting to turn on and off. Photo Captures appear as a clip in the clip list with a blue camera icon as shown here between the video thumbnail and the camera name.
Power cycle your camera. If your camera is powered with batteries, replace them with new 1.5v Lithium AA batteries. Move the camera closer to your Sync Module.
Generally, Blink cameras shouldn’t record when disarmed. They should only do so when armed. So, if your camera is recording when disarmed, it could be that Motion Detection is enabled. Remember that Motion Detection automatically becomes active when the camera is armed.
To avoid feedback, you can mute, or lower the volume of the device running the Blink app. To silence the Blink app in Live View, tap the speaker mute icon in the upper right corner of the screen. You can also stop the Live View session, switch out of the Blink app entirely, or move out of hearing range of the camera.
Arm your system by tapping Armed at the bottom of the Home screen. A message will display confirming that your system has been Armed or Disarmed. Once your system is Armed, any motion detected by your cameras will send a notification to your mobile device.
When using your Blink Wired Floodlight or Mini camera without a Blink Subscription Plan, you must tap Continue every 60 seconds in Live View and your total session length is limited to five minutes. Extended Live View is ONLY available in Blink Basic, Blink Plus and free trials of the subscription plans.
Without a Blink Subscription, or existing cloud storage, certain Blink cameras receive Motion Notifications in the Blink app. Simply tap the notification to enter the camera’s Live View. No clips are saved, but you have two-way audio and video from the camera through the Blink app.
Do Blink Cameras Record Continuously? Unfortunately, Blink cameras do not record 24/7, they are purely motion-based clips. With a subscription plan, you’ll only be able to look at Live View continuously, but even that has a time limit. After 90 minutes, Live View will stop.
Blink cameras have an 850nm infrared (IR) LED light to show you clear video in areas of complete darkness. If Night Vision is enabled, your camera will be able to view and record in a low light or non-lit environment.
