If you have a Blink camera and an Amazon Echo device, you can enable Blink to work with Alexa. With this feature, you can use voice commands to view the live feed from your Blink camera on your Echo Show or Fire TV. You can also ask Alexa to record video or take a snapshot from your Blink camera.
In order to set up Blink with Alexa, you will need to link your Blink account with your Amazon account. Once you have done this, you can enable the skill in the Alexa app.
- Download the Blink app and create an account
- Connect your Blink camera to the Blink Sync Module using the included USB cable
- Open the Blink app and sign in with your account credentials
- Tap on the menu icon in the top-left corner of the screen and select “Devices”
- Select your Blink Sync Module from the list of devices and tap on “Sync with Alexa”
- Follow the prompts to complete the process
Why Won’T Alexa Show My Blink Camera?
There are a few reasons why Alexa may not be able to show your Blink camera. First, make sure that your Blink system is set up correctly and that the Blink sync module is properly connected to your router. Next, check to see if your Alexa app is up to date.
If it’s not, update the app and try again. Finally, restart both your Blink system and your Echo device. This should fix the problem.
Can Blink Camera Notify Alexa?
Yes, Blink cameras can notify Alexa. You can set up your Blink system to send alerts to your Echo device when motion is detected. This way, you’ll always be aware of activity around your home, even when you’re not in the room with your camera.
To get started, open the Alexa app and select “Skills.” Search for “Blink SmartHome” and enable the skill. Then, follow the instructions to link your Blink account.
Once you’ve completed these steps, say “Alexa, show me my Front Door Camera” or “Alexa, show me my Living Room Camera” to view a live feed from your Blink cameras on any compatible Echo device with a screen.
Blink Live View Not Supported Alexa
If you have an Amazon Echo Show, you may be disappointed to learn that Blink Live View is not currently supported. While you can view a still image of your camera’s most recent activity, you can’t view a live feed. This could be frustrating if you’re trying to keep an eye on your home while you’re away.
There are a few possible explanations for why this feature isn’t available. First, it’s possible that the Blink team is still working on adding support for Live View. Alternatively, Amazon could be working on adding this feature to their own security cameras before they roll it out to third-party devices like Blink.
In the meantime, there are a few workarounds that might help you get the live streaming functionality you’re after. One option is to use the Blink app on your phone or tablet instead of the Echo Show. You can also ask someone else in your home to check the Blink app for you and report back if anything interesting is happening.
We’ll continue to monitor this situation and update this post if anything changes. In the meantime, let us know in the comments if you’ve found a workaround that we didn’t mention here!
