How can I arm my system for motion detection?

When you first set up your Blink system, your system will be Disarmed by default, as seen below. 



When you tap the toggle next to Disarmed, you are arming your Blink system.



At the base of your home screen, you will now see Armed .
Each camera that successfully arms will display a blue motion icon .
In this state, the camera will detect motion, record a short clip and you will receive a notification on your device.
You can disable an individual camera from arming by tapping this blue motion icon.
When the system is armed and motion is disabled for a particular camera, a gray motion icon will be displayed .
With the camera in this state, motion will not be detected.  Your home screen will look similar to this:



In this state, your Front Door camera will detect motion and record clips, your Hallway camera would not detect motion and record clips.
Please see our article on viewing your clips here for more information.
