After inserting the card, the Sync Module will check for proper storage capacity. The app will prompt you to format the card if necessary.


How does the Sync Module Pro work with Cloud storage or Local storage?

Inserting a microSD card allows the Sync Module Pro to store video clips to the card in two different ways:

Cloud storage backup

With a Blink Subscription Plan (sold separately) or trial, a once-daily backup of your Cloud Storage clips are saved to the microSD card. Clips that are backed up onto the microSD card are viewable on a PC.

  • Note: Cloud Storage clips are available for a limited time, up to 60 days (30 days in EU/UK). Backing up Cloud Storage clips allows them to be permanently available until you manually delete them or your microSD card capacity is reached.

Local storage

When there is no active Blink Subscription plan, video clips from eligible cameras are saved directly to the microSD card once recording completes. Clips that have been saved to Local Storage are viewable in the Blink app.

  • Only the Blink Outdoor 4, Wired Floodlight, Video Doorbell, Outdoor & Indoor (3rd Gen), and Mini are eligible for Local Storage, but all Blink cameras may be part of a Sync Module Pro system.
    • Note: Legacy Blink cameras XT, XT2, and Indoor (1st Gen) cannot make use of Local Storage or Clip Backup with a Sync Module and microSD card. However, these cameras continue to receive 7200 seconds of Cloud storage. When these cameras reach their 7,200 second limit, the oldest clips are deleted as new ones are stored in the cloud.
