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.
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.
The Blink XT2 will record when motion is detected or Live View is active. Blink cameras do not offer continuous recording, though you can leave the system armed for any interval of time.
What is armed vs disarmed CCTV?
The difference between Armed and Disarmed is that various intrusion zones can trigger an alarm while the system is in an Armed state, but not in a Disarmed state. Only 24-Hour Zones are capable of triggering an alarm on a Disarmed security system.
Well, the answer is a Yes! According to Tenable Inc, one of the leading Cyber security firms, these cameras are vulnerable to hacking.
When your camera is disarmed, it simply means that all motion detection and recording are turned off for that particular camera.
Blink cameras use either Passive Infrared (PIR) or Pixel Difference Analysis (PDA) to detect motion. Both technologies provide similar motion detection. Blink cameras detect motion best from about 7 to 19 feet (2m to 6m) away, and can respond to motion at 30 feet (10m).
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.
This LED light is present in all blink cameras including blink outdoor, indoor, mini, XT2, and XT. If this blue light is on, it means the blink security camera has detected motion and is recording the event.
