How to Set Up Blink Mini

2. Tap the Blink mini camera as indicated by an arrow in the image below. You are taken to the “Scan QR Code” screen, where your camera may request permission to scan the QR code. This is a way to enter the serial number automatically. You may enter the number manually instead. After the device is recognized, it needs a system.

Note:
If your camera does not focus correctly on the QR code, add more light to the scene, either with the camera flash or room lighting.

 

3. If you want to add the Mini to a new system, give your system a name in the text entry field, and it will be created. When adding the Mini to an existing system, just tap the system name to continue.
