I have two sync modules. They are named Blink Indoor Sync and Blink Outdoor Sync in my list of router devices. I have two XT cameras connected to my outdoors sync and three (2 are XT) connected to the other sync device.
I note though that my WiFi network shows ADDITIONAL devices (so far three) attached to my router which appear to be related to Blink. They appear and disappear aparently randomly. They are entitled XXXXXX-mysimplelink where XXXXXX is a long hexadecimal number.
They are not an external device connecting to my Network which is secure.
They only appeared when I installed Blink.
Mac address says they are built in to a device manufactured by Texas Instruments and is used by, from Google searches, DoorChime systems developed by Blink competitors as a for instance.
It is also integrated in to Amazon Web Systems. I quote from the link below:
“Enabling developers to quickly and securely connect Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints to the cloud, Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced the integration of the new Amazon FreeRTOS into the SimpleLink™ microcontroller (MCU) platform. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has worked with TI in the development of an integrated hardware and software solution that enables developers to quickly establish a connection to AWS IoT service out-of-the-box and immediately begin system development.”
and as Blink is an Amazon device I think it is highly likely that it is in Blinks systems.
Blink Technical Support are next to useless - They seem to google when they run out of Template answers or quote my info back to me.
Any idea what these devices are and what purpose they perform?
