Can I Share My Blink Camera?

Yes, you can share your Blink camera with other users. This feature is helpful if you want other members of your household to monitor your home security or if you’re away and want someone else to keep an eye on things.

However, it’s important to remember that anyone with whom you share access will be able to view live footage, motion clips, and make changes to the camera settings.

How to Share Your Blink Camera Online

Blink allows you to share your camera online through the Blink Home Monitor app. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open the App: Start by opening the Blink Home Monitor app on your device.
  2. Go to Management: On the home screen, you will see a ‘Manage Account’ option. Tap on it to proceed.
  3. Share Access: Once you’re in the ‘Manage Account’ menu, you will see an option labeled ‘Share Access.’ Tap on this, and you will be prompted to enter the email address of the person you want to share your Blink camera with.
  4. Send Invitation: After you’ve entered the email address, tap ‘Send Invitation.’ An email will be sent to the person with instructions on how to access your Blink camera.

Sharing Your Blink Camera Through the Admin Portal

As of the latest update in June 2023, Blink allows sharing of camera access only through its mobile app and not directly through an online admin portal or website.

All account management and sharing features are accessed through the Blink Home Monitor app, as described in the steps above.

How to Share Blink Camera Video

Sharing specific video clips from your Blink camera is a straightforward process. Follow these steps:

  1. Access Recorded Videos: Open the Blink Home Monitor app and navigate to the ‘Clip Roll’ or ‘Folders’ section to view your recorded videos.
  2. Select a Video: Tap on the video you want to share. The video will start playing.
  3. Share the Video: While the video is playing, you’ll see a ‘Share’ icon in the upper right corner of the screen. Tap on it, and you’ll see various options for sharing, including email, text, or social media platforms. Select your preferred method, and follow the prompts to share the video.

In summary, Blink offers a flexible and user-friendly system for sharing your camera or specific videos with others. While it’s a powerful tool, remember that shared access allows other users to view and control your camera.

Always ensure you’re sharing access or videos with trusted individuals. Keep an eye on future updates from Blink, as they continue to refine and expand their features for an even better home security experience.
