Welcome to Blink! We are very happy to help get you started.
Firstly, you install the Blink app on your mobile device and create an account, then add the devices you wish to use. The Blink app follows the same pattern whether it is on iOS, Android or Fire TV operating systems.
With Blink, you have one account, with one email address and one phone number. More than one person can log into the account using the main email address and password. On login and certain other actions, a verification number is sent to the email address or mobile number of the account. To enter the Blink app, get the verification number from the account owner.
If you already have an account, please choose the Blink device you wish to add.

PIN codes are valid for 40 minutes. After one minute, the "Resend PIN Code" option appears.
When you have verified your email address, the app configures your SMS text phone number to send alerts and for account verification.
When you are presented with a Phone number entry screen, tap the Phone number entry line to bring up a keypad.
Select your country code from the menu that is displayed when you tap the flag icon next to the Phone number entry line.
Enter the phone number you wish to use for device verification and tap "Next".
If you prefer to not use SMS, the PIN code can be read to you by an automated Voice call instead.
To choose this option, select "Voice call" and tap "Next".
Note: The SMS text option should only be used with mobile phone lines and will not work with landlines. Blink ONLY uses this number to positively associate your device to the Blink app - to make sure the person making changes is you. Your information is private and will not be used for additional purposes or shared with third parties.
At this point, an SMS Text message containing the PIN code is sent to the phone number, and the PIN entry screen is opened for you.
Example SMS Text Message:
Enter the PIN from the SMS Text message we sent you and tap "Verify".
PIN codes are valid for 40 minutes. After one minute, the "Resend PIN Code" option is presented.

When the verification step is complete, you are prompted to link your new Blink account to your Amazon account, by tapping on the "Link Accounts button". This is an optional step. Click to learn how to link your accounts at a later time.
You also have the option to select "Skip" which will take you to the home screen, without linking your accounts.
Then sign into your existing Amazon account or create a new one if needed. The link is then established between accounts and click Next.
Now that the app is installed, select the Blink device that you want to set up.
