This articles describes how to change your camera name and refresh the thumbnail image.
When you add a new camera, the camera name and image are not set up. Your camera's device serial number (DSN) displays as the camera name (shown below as G8V1-9000-1362-CR5R). The thumbnail image (your camera's view) will be blue. To change the name of your camera or add a thumbnail picture, follow the steps below.
Change the camera name
- To find Device Settings, tap the More buttonat the bottom right of the device's thumbnail image.
- From the Device Setting screen, select General Settings.
- Next, tap the camera's name to enter the new name (for example, back porch). Once you enter the new camera name, tap Save.
From the Home Screen, tap the More buttonand select Refresh Thumbnail. The camera takes a screenshot of the current live view and replaces the blue image with this screenshot. The thumbnail remains the same until you refresh it using Refresh Thumbnail. Learn more about using the Blink app.
Note: This process doesn't apply to the Video Doorbell when it's in Event Response Mode, since the thumbnail is updated automatically each time the doorbell ringer button is pressed or a motion event occurs. Learn more about Event Response Mode.
