Can my camera record in low-light?

Adjusting your video settings for Night Vision

Yes! Blink cameras have an 850nm infrared (IR) LED light to show you clear video in areas of complete darkness. This feature is known as Night Vision. When enabled, your camera will be able to view and record in a low light or non-lit environment.

Note: Placing your camera on a deep ledge or beside any reflective surface can result in glare that can impact image quality. Learn more about camera placement.

Using Night Vision

  1. Tap the More  button located at the bottom-right corner of the device thumbnail to access Device Settings. Then select Video and Photo Settings.
  2. In the Night Vision menu select Auto, On, or Off.
  3. Tap Save in the top right to retain your selection.

IR Intensity

You can fine-tune intensity depending on how strong you want the IR LED light to shine while using Night Vision.

  • Low - Low intensity is better for areas that aren't as dark but you want to use Night Vision.
  • Med - Medium intensity is good for most environments where you want to use Night Vision.
  • High - High intensity is better for extremely dark areas or areas where almost no light occurs.

You can use Live View to test your settings and select the best options for your situation.
