I have a blink mini camera, which I added to a system that already has blink xt’s and xt2’s. There didn’t seem to be any problem adding the camera, and it worked for a few days as normal, but it seems to not trigger recordings or alerts. If I unplug it and plug it back into power, it works for a short time (hours, or maybe one day) then stops. I can get a live video through the app as normal, but it won’t trigger a recording on its own. I notice the red status led light is on all the time as well, even though I set it to “off”.
I don’t have a mini, but I think there are many posts regarding this issue. A search of the forum should find the details.
From memory, it is a known issue, on which Blink are working on a solution, going through final testing at the moment, but I may be wrong, so have a search around.
I think it might just be this one camera with the issue. The other mini I just installed appears to be working correctly.
Mine has done the same since blink started charging for cloud service. My experience has turned so negative, I’m considering using a different brand. Good luck with a solution. I would be interested in what you found that works.
