How to Turn Off a Red Light on a Blink Camera

You may see a red light on your Blink outdoor, indoor, mini, or XT camera if you have problems with the internet connection. It’s a common issue that can be fixed with some simple steps.

Another common issue that can cause a blink camera to flash red is low batteries. This is especially true for battery-powered cameras, so make sure to change them regularly.

1. Battery

If your blink camera is flashing red lights, it could be due to a number of different problems. Sometimes it’s a battery issue, and other times it might be that the camera is simply having trouble connecting to the internet.

If you’re having a problem with your outdoor blink camera, there are a few things that you can do to fix it. First, make sure that you’re using fresh batteries.

You should also check the battery’s voltage. If the battery is low, it will usually cause your Blink camera to flash its red light 5 or 6 times after the blue recording light goes out.

Often, this is caused by a battery that needs to be replaced. You should always replace the battery when it’s low and make sure that you use fresh batteries every time you replace them.

2. Wi-Fi

If you notice a blinking red light on your blink camera, it might be an indicator of a problem with the Wi-Fi connection. This is often the result of a bad or spotty wireless network, and it’s pretty easy to fix.

The first thing to try is to turn off the device and re-connect it with your home WiFi router. This will usually solve the issue and you can go back to using your Blink camera.

Once connected, your blink camera should show a solid green light. If it still isn’t, there’s another possibility — your password is incorrect or the device is blocked by a firewall.

To resolve this, you’ll need to connect the camera to your Wi-Fi network and then reset your device’s password. Follow the instructions in your Blink product manual to do this. It’s a fairly simple process and should have your camera back up and running in no time.

3. Sync Module

If your camera’s flashing red light is caused by a low battery or a problem with the internet, you can easily turn it off using the Sync Module. The Sync Module works as a central hub for the Blink system, relaying commands and network details to devices in the system.

Sync Module placement is key to getting the best results, and it should be as close as possible to all of the cameras you’re trying to connect. You can do this by installing the Sync Module in a central location in your home or in a room that’s close to all of the cameras you want to add.

The Sync Module uses a QR code to join your Wi-Fi network, and it will ask you for the serial number of the device you’re adding. You can scan it with your camera, or enter it manually. After you’ve done this, you’ll be able to join the Wi-Fi network and start syncing your cameras.

4. Settings

A red light on a blink camera is usually a sign that the device is having problems. It could mean the battery needs to be replaced or that there’s an issue with the internet connection.

Blink cameras come with a number of settings that can help you fix the problem. First, you can turn off the status LED that flashes whenever someone is in your camera’s field of view.

You can also disable the front-facing screen on the camera. This will make it look less like a security camera and make it more unnoticeable.

Another option is to do a hard reset on the camera. This is an effective way to restore the camera’s factory settings and start over.
