How Can I Move My Blink System to a New Location or Wi-Fi Network?

To move your system to a new location or Wi-Fi network, you will reconfigure the Sync Module for its new network. You may also have success in a new location if you use the exact same Wi-Fi configuration, but performance is not guaranteed. It is usually best to reconfigure the Sync Module for the new network.

This procedure requires direct communication between the phone app and the Sync Module. Both must be active and on the same Wi-Fi network. To complete this procedure, you must be physically with your system and have your sync module plugged into a power supply.

Saved clips are not deleted when you reconfigure the Sync Module Wi-Fi network.

To start, tap on the gear icon in the bottom row of the app to enter Settings and select Device and System Settings. Then tap on the name of your system under Systems.

Follow the screen instruction to press the Reset button. Use a thin object to gently press and release the button, located within a recess on the side of the Sync Module. It appears as a small hole in the case as shown in the image below.

Tap Join, and then select your Wi-Fi network from the available choices.
