How to Mount a Blink Mini Camera Step-by-Step Guide
Step 1: Remove Mount From the Camera
The Blink Mini Camera comes with a very handy mount that can attach the camera to several different surfaces. However, you first need to remove it from the camera to use the mount. To do this, pinch the sides of the mount together and pull it away from the camera.
Step 2: Apply Pressure on Outer Ring
Now that you have the Blink Mini firmly in place, it’s time to apply pressure to the outer ring. This will ensure that the Blink Mini is properly secured and won’t move around when you’re trying to take a photo or video. To do this, press down on the outer ring until you hear a clicking sound.
Step 3: Select a Location
Once you have your Blink Mini Camera, you will need to find a place to mount it. You may want to mount it in a convenient location for you to access or in a location where it can capture the most activity. For example, some people choose to mount their Blink Mini Camera on the ceiling, while others mount it on a wall. You can also purchase a Blink Mini Camera Stand to place your camera on a table or shelf.
When selecting a location for your Blink Mini Camera, keep in mind that the camera needs to be plugged into an outlet. In addition, the Blink Sync Module, which is included with your Blink Mini Camera, must also be plugged into an outlet and connected to your home Wi-Fi network for your camera to function properly.
Step 4: Secure Mount
There are many ways to secure the mount. A popular way is to use zip ties. Please make sure the camera is pointing in the desired direction before securing it. Another way to secure the mount is by using screws and a drill. This will provide a more permanent solution, but it may be overkill for some applications.
Step 5: Work With the Retaining Ring
The Blink Mini comes with a small retaining ring that helps keep the camera in place. If you’re having trouble getting the retaining ring to stay in place, try using a piece of tape to hold it in place. Once the retaining ring is in place, you can attach the camera to your chosen surface.
Step 6: Put Mount Back on Unit
Once the camera is in the desired location, it is time to put the mount back on the unit. Align the two posts on the mount with the corresponding holes on the camera and press firmly until they snap into place. You should now be able to twist and tilt the camera in any direction you like.
Step 7: Plug in the Cable
Now that the camera is mounted plug in the power and USB cables. The power cable goes into the camera’s top, and the USB cable plugs into the bottom. Again, be sure to orient the cables correctly to fit properly.
Step 8: Plug into Outlet
Once the Blink Sync Module is connected to your WiFi network, plug the power adapter into an outlet and insert the batteries into your Blink Mini. The camera will automatically startup.
Step 9: Test Mount Security
After you have finished assembling your Blink Mini Camera, it is important to test how well the camera is mounted and secure. To do this, pretend to rob your home or business and try to remove the camera. If it is difficult or impossible to remove, you know that it is securely mounted and will provide the security you need.
If the camera is not securely mounted, you will need to adjust to the mount or find a different location to mount the camera. It is important to ensure that the camera is secure so that would-be thieves or vandals cannot easily remove it.
Step 10: Test the Camera
Now it’s time to test the Blink Mini. To do this, go to the “Live View” tab in the Blink app and ensure that you can see your camera’s live feed. If everything is working properly, you should be able to see yourself on the screen!
