Quick Answer: How Far Will A Blink Camera Detect Motion?

Each camera that successfully arms will display a blue motion icon .

In this state, the camera will detect motion, record a short clip and you will receive a notification on your device.

You can disable an individual camera from arming by tapping this blue motion icon..

Ring offers a much more versatile set of devices and power options, with extra features such as light and siren functionality. There are also cameras with two-way audio, and while Blink offers this too, it’s only on the Blink XT2, which is currently only available in the US and Canada.

To test notifications, head to the Blink app home screen, arm the system, ensure that the camera is enabled for motion detection (the ‘running man’ icon is blue color), and then make a motion in front of the camera. Within a few moments, you should receive a notification that a motion was detected.

Blink’s feature-rich system includes a motion detector; when armed, any detected motion triggers the recording of a short video clip. Quickly receive a push notification alert with a link to the video attached, so you can decide how to respond. Easily access on-demand video streaming through the Blink app.
