Mine doesn’t update at all in the smartthings app. Unless I press the update sensor button.
At least there is no temp in the devices history


#2204

Got a message to update the blink camera app tried to instal Rboy new app and I get this message

Did you update the device handler and the app?


(www.rboyapps.com - Make your home your butler!) #2206

You’re using the wrong instructions. You’re pasting the device handler code in the SmartApp


#2207

Didn’t see this listed but have a question on whether it is possible once one camera detects motion all the cameras can take a snapshot at the same time. or if there is an option to where you can manually trigger all the cameras at the same time to take a snapshot at once to view. I know i can access each camera and do it. but was just curious if this is a feature that is available and if so how do i set it up. Thanks for all your help.

SmartApp no 14

  1. Intruder Alert with Alarms, Lights and Camera Pictures

#2209

Thats perfect i will try it out. is there away to perform the multicamera capture through a routine?

How come I don’t get temp changes in the device history? Also the temp tile doesn’t changes unless I press “sensor update”


(Beckwith) #2211

This issues seems to have been fixed a couple of weeks after I reported it. Another issue where night vision was underexposed when a light source is visible seems to have been fixed recently.

Night vision is much better now.

I don’t see any announcement by Blink where these were fixed.


(Benji) #2212

They’ve certainly been doing other things as well, the devices use a different host name now, that is basically “MAC address-mysimplelink”. An insignificant change but it would be nice to know about firmware update being pushed out.


(Brad B.) #2213

Thanks! I just used your code.

Here is another one if someone wants to save $25. It’s still a better deal than the $10 off for signing up for their newsletter.


(Ron Talley) #2214

And I just used yours and got another XT (Refurbished) so was only $75. Works for me!

Here’s another code. I wonder if you can stack other discounts?..


(Ron Talley) #2215

Can the DTH be installed without a HUB? Meaning, can someone download the ST App, installed the DTH and SmartApp and have access to their cameras without ever buying a HUB?


(www.rboyapps.com - Make your home your butler!) #2216

It needs a hub to attach and install the devices to, ST requirement. If you have multiple hubs the SmartApp will prompt you to select the hub to install (attach) the Blink cameras.

I just got new Blink XT cameras and setup this smartapp. The control works fine but live feed seems to be very slow and the video also has a green tint with actual picture in a smaller rectangle.

Is this a problem with the smartapp or do I need to update something in the cameras? The live feed in the Blink app works fine.


#2218

Do you see the Green hue in the Blink native app? If you do, than the XT is faulty and you need to open a ticket with the Blink support to have it replaced.

(Bertan Aygun) #2219

The feed through Blink App was fine. Smartapp feed also looks fine now though so maybe it was a temporary issue.


#2220

Keep an eye on this.


(Brad B.) #2221

How long did you have to wait? I ordered a 3 camera setup over the weekend and my order status still says that the order was received but nothing was shipped. Are these back-ordered? Looks like Amazon doesn’t have any stock either.

Hi @DITPL,

You should go to the community.Blink.com and post to @nick_at_blink. He may be better at answering this question.
