A Step-by-Step Guide
Connecting your Blink camera to your Wi-Fi network is an essential step in setting up your home security system. With a wireless connection, you can easily access your camera footage from anywhere, at any time, using the Blink app on your smartphone or tablet. In this article, we will walk you through the process of connecting your Blink camera to your Wi-Fi network, step-by-step.
Step 1: Insert the batteries
The first step in connecting your Blink camera to your Wi-Fi network is to insert the batteries. Blink cameras use two AA batteries, which can be found in the camera’s battery compartment. Make sure to insert the batteries with the positive end facing up, as indicated by the diagram on the inside of the compartment.
Step 2: Download the Blink app
The next step is to download the Blink app on your smartphone or tablet. The Blink app is available for both iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Once the app is downloaded, open it and create an account or log in if you already have one.
Step 3: Put the camera into setup mode
To put your camera into setup mode, press and hold the button on the back of the camera for 5 seconds. The LED light on the front of the camera will start flashing blue, indicating that the camera is in setup mode.
Step 4: Connect to the camera’s Wi-Fi network
On your smartphone or tablet, go to the Wi-Fi settings and connect to the camera’s Wi-Fi network. The network name (SSID) will be “Blink-XXXX” where XXXX is a unique identifier for your camera. Once connected, open the Blink app.
Step 5: Add the camera to your account
In the Blink app, tap the “+” button in the top-right corner to add a new camera. The app will then search for available cameras and will display the camera that is in setup mode. Select the camera and follow the prompts to add it to your account.
Step 6: Connect the camera to your Wi-Fi network
Once the camera is added to your account, the app will prompt you to connect it to your Wi-Fi network. Enter your Wi-Fi network name and password and tap “Connect.” The camera will then connect to your Wi-Fi network and will be ready to use.
Connecting your Blink camera to your Wi-Fi network is a simple process that can be completed in just a few minutes. By following these steps, you can easily access your camera footage from anywhere, at any time, using the Blink app on your smartphone or tablet.
Blink camera connect to Wi-Fi or Sync Module?
Your Blink camera needs to be connected to a Wi-Fi network in order to work. However, you don’t necessarily need the Blink Sync Module for your Blink camera to work.
The Blink Sync Module is only required if you want to use certain features, such as motion detection alerts and live streaming video.
If you don’t need those features, you can save some money by not getting the Blink Sync Module.
How do I know if my Blink camera is connected to Wi-Fi?
If your Blink camera is successfully connected to Wi-Fi, you should see a solid blue light on the front of the camera. If the light is flashing, that means your camera is trying to connect to Wi-Fi but hasn’t been successful yet.
If you don’t see any light on your Blink camera, that means it’s not getting power. Make sure the camera is turned on and check the power connection.
I still can’t connect my Blink camera to Wi-Fi. What should I do?
If you’re still having trouble connecting your Blink camera to Wi-Fi, there are a few things you can try:
Restart your router and modem. This will often fix any temporary connection issues.
Make sure your router is on the 2.4 GHz frequency band. The Blink cameras won’t work with 5 GHz networks.
Move your router closer to your Blink camera. If there’s too much distance between the router and camera, the signal may be too weak.
If you’ve tried all of these things and you’re still having trouble connecting your Blink camera to Wi-Fi, please contact customer support.
How do I know if my Blink Sync Module is connected to power?
If your Blink Sync Module is connected to power, you should see a solid blue light on the front of the Sync Module. If the light is flashing, that means your Sync Module is trying to connect to power but hasn’t been successful yet.
If you don’t see any light on your Blink Sync Module, that means it’s not getting power. Make sure the Sync Module is turned on and check the power connection.
