Blink is the most affordable and easy to use video security system that I have ever used. The installation process is simple and you can protect your home in minutes by following these steps:
How to install Blink Outdoor
How to install Blink Outdoor:
Create a Blink account on the Blink website, or login if you already have an account. If you are new to Blink, you will need an Amazon Prime membership and a valid credit card. You will also receive a free gift card for your first purchase of $50 or more. After creating an account, download and install the app on your mobile device.
Mount the sync module to where it has clear line of sight with the camera (ideally between 10-30 ft away) and plug it into power. Turn on both devices by holding down until they let out two consecutive beeps (around 15 seconds). Your sync module is now ready for pairing with your camera(s).
In your app's Account tab select Add Cameras from Setup Wizard followed by Scan QR Code on Sync Module Now"
Step 1: create an account
To start the installation process, you'll need to create an account on the Blink website. To do this, visit https://blinkforhome.com/login and enter your email address and password. You'll receive a confirmation message in your inbox after signing up.
You can manage your account on the blink website by going to https://blinkforhome.com/signin#/accounts/create_account
Step 2: mount the sync module
The sync module mounts on a wall or ceiling, but make sure it's in a place where it can get a good GPS signal. The best location for the sync module is away from direct sunlight and direct rain or snow.
Step 3: connect the sync module
Plug the sync module into a power outlet.
Plug your router into the sync module.
Connect your camera to your router by connecting its cable to an Ethernet port on the back of your router or modem.
Step 4: download the app and add your camera
Next, download the Blink app from the App Store or Google Play. You'll need to sign up for a Blink account before you can use it, so make sure to do that right away.
Once you've downloaded and opened up the app, tap "Add Cameras" in the top-right corner of your screen to go through the process of adding your new Blink camera. This will take about 15 minutes on average but could be faster or slower depending on how fast your internet connection is (this process is called "adding" a camera). Once added successfully, you can keep your phone handy because then it's time to start using it!
Step 5: mount the camera
You can mount the camera on a wall or pole. We recommend mounting it high, so that it’s not easily accessible to intruders and burglars.
If you choose to mount the camera on a wall or pole, make sure that it’s pointing in the right direction. You want to be able to see as much of your yard or driveway as possible through its field of view so you can get alerts when someone approaches either area. This will also help with motion detection when we set up that feature later in this tutorial!
You are now protected by your blink outdoor camera.
You are now protected by your blink outdoor camera. You can monitor your home from anywhere, and get alerts when there is motion or sound. You can see live video on your phone, and set up zones to get alerts only when there is movement in specific areas.
This is an excellent product for anyone who wants to keep track of what's going on at their home while they're away and for those who want peace of mind that their house will be safe when they're away from it.
Now that you know how to install your blink outdoor camera, there’s nothing stopping you from protecting your home and family from intruders. This is the easiest way to get started with home security!
