What is the BLINK Wi-Fi network?

Local network and location app permissions

The Blink Wi-Fi network is a temporary wireless signal used to connect Blink devices to your mobile device. When adding a Sync Module, Mini, Video Doorbell, or Wired Floodlight Camera, the Blink app will prompt you to connect to the temporary Blink Wi-Fi network. This network is named “BLINK-" followed by the last four digits of the device's serial number. 

The Sync Module manages communications between your wireless cameras and Blink secure servers. The Blink Mini, Video Doorbell, and Wired Floodlight do not require a Sync Module for those communications.

You can safely connect your mobile device to your local "BLINK-XXXX" temporary Wi-Fi connection. If you encounter problems connecting to your local Blink Wi-Fi, make sure you have the Blink app Local Network (iOS) or Location (Android) permissions enabled on your mobile device. See the links below for more information.
