The latest Blink cameras come with a Sync Module that controls all the communication between the cameras, the servers, and your app.

Sometimes, the Blink Sync Module glitches and brings the whole system to a standstill. It might happen due to a minor software bug, poor connectivity, or rarely, due to hardware failure.

Assuming it’s not a hardware issue, the easiest way to get your system running again is to reset the Blink Sync Module. We’ll show you how to do that, and anything else you need to know.

To reset a Blink Sync Module 2

Before starting the reset, make sure you have a paperclip or a similar thin, pointed object at hand.

  1. Find the reset button

  3. Wait for it to reboot

    One of the LEDs on the front will flash red for roughly 10-15 seconds. Once that’s done, you’ll see a blinking blue light above a solid green one.

Once you see the above pattern on your Blink Sync Module 2, the device is successfully set up and ready to be re-added to the Blink App.

How to reset the Blink Sync Module 1

To reset the first-gen Blink Sync Module, the process is very similar to the newest ones. The only difference is the location of the reset button which is located on the side of the device, besides the USB port.

Here’s what to do.
