Power cycle both your modem and router by unplugging them for 30 seconds and plugging them back in. Then wait two minutes for Internet service to be restored and then try using your camera again. Power cycle your camera by removing the batteries for 10 seconds and reinsert them.
On the Blink app Home screen, tap the + icon in the top right corner. On Add Device, tap the Mini Camera. Add your camera to an existing system or create a new system name if you’d like. You will be instructed to plug in your camera and wait for the lights on the camera’s face to appear.
The most common reason a Blink camera doesn’t detect motion is that motion detection is not enabled or the camera is not armed in the Blink camera settings. Other reasons include low sensitivity settings, activity zones being turned on, wrong IR settings, and exceeding the maximum range.
A red light on the Blink Mini shows when the camera is not connected to the internet. As a first step, unplug and plug-in the Mini camera. If the Mini was already connected to your network, the red LED changes to solid blue and blinking green lights as the Mini reconnects.
Use a small object or fingernail to press the reset button for 5 seconds. You will see a flash of red and then after 15 seconds a blinking blue light and solid green light appear at the front of the Sync Module. The Sync Module is ready to be added through the Blink app.
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.
Blink products can only connect to 2.4 GHz (802.11 b/g/n) networks. Many newer routers provide 5 GHz Wi-Fi, or switch between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz automatically. The Sync Module will not respond if it has been switched to a 5 GHz network.
Position your mobile device closer to or farther away from the QR code on your Blink device. It’s sometimes necessary to experiment with different distances and angles between your Blink device and camera lens, to obtain optimal focus to scan the QR code. Adjust the brightness on your mobile device.
