A: Hello, All existing customers who have an account created on or before 4/15/2020 will continue to receive free cloud storage on all devices added to their account going forward – this includes Mini, and Blink Indoor, Outdoor and Doorbell. Separately, XT, XT2, and legacy Indoor cams will continue to have free storage. Accounts created after 4/15/2020 will receive free cloud storage on any legacy device (1st Gen Indoor, XT or XT2), but any Mini, new Blink Indoor, Outdoor cameras or Doorbell added to that same account will require either local storage via the Sync Module 2 or a subscription for cloud storage to save videos. If you do not subscribe to the Blink subscription plan, you can still enable motion alerts that notify you if your cameras detect movement, however, without a subscription this notification will not trigger a video clip recording but you can still live view. A subscription is not required for local storage. Local USB storage will still be available for no charge. You will still be able to record and do everything the same as with Cloud storage except live view record. No matter which storage system you use, your clips will be recorded & uploaded to the proper place. If you're using local storage they go to your USB stick, subscription cloud storage would send it to the cloud. The only time that a motion notification/motion event won't record a clip is when there is no storage system in place. Since there is nowhere to send the clips without storage, the clips don't get recorded.
A: Hi Jal! All you need to setup the Blink Indoor camera is the camera, an available outlet for power supply, the "blink" app installed on your mobile device, and a non-cellular 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network (name and password) and high speed Internet connection (DSL, Cable, Fiber) with a minimum 2 Mbit/sec upload speed. Thanks for the question, have an amazing day!
A: You are able to add the Blink Mini, Blink Outdoor or Blink Indoor to your existing Blink System. If you are adding the Blink Mini, Blink Indoor and Outdoor cameras to an existing Blink Account that has been activated on or before 4/15/2020, you will be grandfathered into your current free cloud storage model in the Blink app. Blink accounts activated after 4/15/2020 will receive motion alerts and be able to enter Live View for free, but will require either local storage via the Sync Module 2 or a subscription for cloud storage to save videos for these newer cameras. A subscription is not required for local storage. You can have up to 10 Blink devices per sync module as long as they are all within the 100ft operating range of the sync module in any direction. The cameras on the sync module can be in any combination.
