Camera Range In general, you can place a Blink camera up to 100 feet away from the sync module. For outdoor cameras you have a few things to consider when it comes to placing them. For sure you want to cover your doors - the front, back and garage door, if you have one. If you have a fence, you may want to try and catch the gate as well. Then try to cover common areas like the yard and driveway. Blink cameras cannot function without an active WiFi connection or an online Sync Module. If internet connectivity is lost or if the Sync Module is powered off, the system will go offline until it both are restored. The Blink cameras record clips based on motion detection only and send an alert to your mobile device. You are also able to record while in live view on the XT2 cameras only. You can set it to record all day or when there is motion.

The camera's blue light turns on, so you clearly know when it's recording and when it's just sitting idly (that also means anyone with common sense can see when the camera is recording, too). Cameras record clips from five to 10 seconds in length, and you can watch clips in the app.
