Version 6.1.6
Been using it for around 4 months now, outdoor cameras still on the original set of batteries with multiple triggers a day. I have it set to only record 5 seconds to keep the batteries lasting longer. No problems with connections as long as you have decent WiFi at home. I think most of the negative reviews around connections is due to people’s poor WiFi. The sync module needs to be in a position that all cameras have a good connection to it and all cameras need to have a good WiFi too, so two types of connections needed. I have a mesh WiFi at home and it hasn’t been a problem at all

Whilst we have had a few issuies with WiFi routs we have got them sorted but getting service out and checking to replace our route . All up and working we are now stuck with a sync modular that just refuses to reboot and connect the “lights are in but no ones home “!! Reboot after reboot sync modular just doesn’t want to find its cameras .. How are we ever to recommend a systum that just don’t work at the first sign of trouble after a reboot ? I’m feeling I’ve wasted my money ? Come on blink Suport for all not just a email that tells you no more than reboot ?

Version 6.1.5
To echo what a lot of people have been saying, the sync module has a habit of disconnecting itself from the internet every now and then, which is incredibly unhelpful if you’re at work or on holiday and defeats the point of having a remote camera.
The app on my phone also has a strange habit, which is to put the camera into live mode whenever the phone receives a notification. This is incredibly annoying and will only result in further battery draining. Please fix this.

Suspicious App

Version 6.1.5
I’m not sure where to start really...
Blink equipment is shockingly bad quality including the newest stuff. The picture is dreadful and more akin to VGA than 1080p (I have switched the picture quality to the highest).
The biggest thing recently though is my iPhone on occasion would play the sound from a camera without any input from me and I don’t even have the app open or sat in the background from a previous viewing. The app just plays the sound live for no reason and only today have I pinned it down to Blink as someone was by the camera I could hear the sound from so I shouted for them to clap near it to 100% clarify it was that and it was.
I don’t trust Blink and I will be getting rid of their junk cameras!
They are also going to charge people for cloud storage soon so you better buy a better brand with better quality.
Updated the app 11/1/21 and still acting the same

3 months in and I find the cams and the app brilliant. The functions on this app are up there with top end camera equipment. I set the zones and a timer job done. So easy to set up anyone can do it. I’ll buy more cameras to add to my system.

Version 6.1.4
Keeps logging me out and requiring me to sign in with a code that they eMail and is only valid for 60 seconds. That validation method is of course useless for other members of the household who need to be able to manage the cameras as they enter and exit the house. System assumes all users live on their own!

Camera audio playing out of nowhere

When the notification comes through the camera audio plays for 30 seconds without warning and without the app being open in the background. I’m talking it’s just playing even if I’m on Facebook or another app.
This never used to happen but now it happens all the time.

This app is horrible.... I’m not particularly picky but the app is unintuitive and seems like it’s received little to no attention for years.
If you’re interested in buying a Blink camera, [at least until this app is completely rebuilt] definitely consider spending more for a different brand with a decent app

Version 6.1.3
Bought 2 of the blink mini cameras on Black Friday to improve security in our home and while they work reasonably well the app needs some improvements - it’s not the most intuitive (although reasonably feature rich), but it drives me nuts that there is no way to clear down motion alerts - it’s delete all or painfully click on each video to mark it as read to get your count down to 0.
Tried contacting support, who confirmed they hadn’t thought of this, but my next reply resulted in a mailbox full response error so I’m not holding my breath sadly.
On the plus side - IFTTT integration does let you arm the cameras when leaving your home and image quality is reasonable.

The app works when it wants to. The settings have no impact most of the time to what the camera does. This really needs looking at. The camera is not the best but with a poor working app makes it pointless.

Version 6.1.2
It’s generally a good experience, especially given relatively low cost. Zone control is patchy at best. Biggest gripe is that only way for others in the house to use the system is to share the Blink account credentials! Really - a security product encouraging/mandating sharing passwords!? Beggars belief and a reputational hit. Get it sorted.

Works fine for a day then disconnects it’s happening every day and is frustrating . Blink support is a waste of time they keep saying the same thing . The module couldn’t be closer to the wifi so I know it well connected . I’m now at a point where I’m thinking of taking the system down and bagging it up and sending to mr blink himself . I wouldn’t recommend this product.

Was very impressed with this system and app when first installed in the spring of this year.
Now you don’t get notifications and alerts of the camera being triggered unless you actually have the app open, which defies the point of the whole thing.
If this isn’t sorted out soon, I’ll be returning the whole system to Amazon as it’s not fit for the purpose advertised.

Generally, viewing the live camera or the saved recordings is pretty slow.
I have the beta version and the additional features are good but again all very slow.
I have four set up covering the outside of my home and I do feel better being able to see things when I am not here or indeed when I am. As a single female, I can feel vulnerable and they do help.
Going to invest in a Ring doorbell so I can (hopefully) have quicker reactions to the front of the house though.

Just purchased two then read about having to reset they sync module when your away from home? Is this going to be sorted, as the user says, if your away from home, you’ve no idea what’s going on until you return to your house emptied? Come on, employ a proper software engineer to sort this out, otherwise your selling all these cameras to people, knowing there pretty useless if your away from home 🏠 if you can’t resolve, then there not security cameras. You could be held liable for you describe these as security cameras, there no good if you have to reset the sync when your hundreds or thousands of miles away from home, or are these just Baby monitors???
I think you need to address the community on what your going to do about this! Does anyone else agree with this statement, mine are being delivered today, my next step will be to add a sync unit to store!

Version 6.1.1
Great little app, but does sometimes lack a bit of ingenuity. Clearly the developers don’t use this app on a day-to-day basis. For example the notifications. If I’ve had a busy day going in and out the front door, and not bothered to disarm my system, I may have 40 to 50 notifications. This is not a problem, however I can’t clear all the notifications in one go. I have to individually watch every single video to clear the notification. Very annoying. The app works great most the time, a little bit leggy and a little bit slow but does the job.

Version 6.1.1
When it works this is a reasonable app and system. However, lately the sync module has taken to disconnecting itself from the router and will not reconnect. The only way to get it to reconnect is by doing a reset, and restarting your router too. Now this is ok if you’re at home, but obviously impossible if you’re away from home. Considering the whole point is to be able to view remotely, to either check in on things or get alerts if there’s an intruder while you’re away, then if it goes offline when you’re away then the whole system is redundant. Looking at the blink community support forum this seems a common issue, and blinks only advice is to reset the module - great, if you’re at home, absolutely useless if you’re not. Come in blink, sort the going offline and reconnecting issue out b

These are good little cameras and the motion detection is really good The problem is that on the iPhone app, the motion alert sound can’t be changed from the standard quiet beep, I’d really like to be able to change it to something that would wake me up.

The app is OK, nothing amazing but it logs you out constantly.
To make matters worse, it doesn’t work right with keychain so you have to type in your password (which I’ve made quite long because cameras are quite important) and then also go to your email for a numeric code.
Got to do it once or twice a week on both mine and my wife’s phone.

When there is a motion detected and i click on the notification it send me to the live view which takes a while to load, there should be a setting where u change the notification to send u to the recording like the old update. Also make it so u can have different schedules on separate cameras on the same sync module. Other than these two suggestions its a good system.

Generally excellent especially in conjunction with IFTTT.
A few updates ago a confirmation panel started appearing when a camera/system is enabled/disabled. It appears over the top enable toggle icon.
I didn’t like this when I first saw it and over time it continues to irritate me.
I wonder if it might be moved so it doesn’t obscure any controls or perhaps be made optional?
A very small gripe I know - but I thought you might appreciate the feedback.
