Hi Blink users,
It took me a while to notice that my blink motionalert notifications come through on my Samsung Galaxy S5 ONLY WHEN WIFI IS CONNECTED. When no wifi is available, a new alert will show up and will be flagged as “new” in the strip folder - but there will be no notification (no banner, no sound) on the lock screen. The notifications will eventually come through, once an internet connection is established. So the product is not very useful if you are driving on a long distance trip , and won’t see the notification until you log into wifi when you reach our destination. BTW, I receive all kinds of other notifications from other apps without trouble. I posed this fact to Product Support - I was told that the implementation in Blink as a “security device” was required by Android to be different from other apps which also feature notifications.
I tried all suggestions which were posted. So I now suspect Blink and Samsung Galaxy S5 are not compatible with each other. I hope I am wrong. Has anyone been successful with Blink alerts on the Samsung S5 in mobile mode (no wifi)?
My suggestion would be for the development team to post a list of smartphones which have been verified in their lab to be compatible with Blink.
