What is the BLINK Wi-Fi network?

Local network and location app permissions

When adding a Sync Module, Mini, Video Doorbell, or Wired Floodlight Camera, you will be prompted to connect your Blink app to the temporary Wi-Fi network. It is named “BLINK-" followed by the last four digits of the device's serial number. 

The Sync Module manages communications between your Blink devices and our secure servers; therefore your camera needs to connect to its local Wi-Fi. The Blink Mini, Video Doorbell, and Wired Floodlight do not require Sync Modules for those communications, which is why they broadcast their own local Wi-Fi connections.

It is completely safe to connect your mobile device to your local "BLINK-XXXX" Wi-Fi connection and there are no security issues. If you encounter any 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.
