Blink Sync Module Lights Meaning [Explained]

The lights on your Blink Sync Module indicate different things. Understanding the meaning of each light will help you know what to do in case the current status requires you to take any action.

So in this post, I’ll explain the meaning of each light you see on your Blink Sync Module. That’s not all. I’ll also tell you what to do if the light status requires you to do anything. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, let’s head right into it.

Blink Sync Module Lights

In short, here is what each light color on your Blink Sync Module represents:

  • Red light: The device is not connected to the internet.
  • Blue/green blinking light: Your Sync Module is connected to Wi-Fi, but the connection is poor.
  • Solid green light only: Your Sync Module is in pairing mode (after resetting it).
  • Solid green and blue light: Your Sync Module is connected, and your network is working properly.
  • No lights at all: The device hasn’t received power.

Next, let’s go into more details about the lights on your Sync Module and what you need to do.

Red Light on Your Sync Module

As mentioned earlier, a red light on your Blink Sync Module means the device has no internet connection. And your Sync Module may show offline in the Blink app if this happens.

To troubleshoot this issue, start by rebooting your router (unplug it from the power outlet and plug in back in). Then wait a few minutes to see if the device will reconnect automatically.

If it doesn’t reconnect, reboot the Sync Module. You can do this by unplugging the cord from its power outlet. Then wait 10 seconds and plug it back in.

More so, check that your router is operating on the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and disable any active VPN on your phone.

Blue/Green Blinking Light on Sync Module

If you see blue or green blinking light on your Sync Module, it indicates the device is connected, but the connection is poor.

This usually happens if your router is too far from the Sync Module. The Sync Module won’t receive strong network signals, hence poor connection.

You can quickly resolve this issue by bringing your router closer or taking the Sync Module closer to the router (at least 23-30ft closer).

You may also get a Wi-Fi extender (if you don’t already have one) to boost your Wi-Fi coverage.

Solid Green Light Only

A solid green light will appear on your Sync Module after performing a factory reset on the device. Usually, you’ll see a red flash first, followed by a blinking blue light. Then a solid green light.

The solid green light indicates the Sync Module is reset and is ready to connect.

You’ll have to open the Blink app (if you haven’t done so already) and start the setup process. Make sure your router is operating on the 2.4GHz as the Blink Sync Module doesn’t currently support 5GHz Wi-Fi.

More so, make sure to enter your correct Wi-Fi password when prompted.

Solid Green and Blue Light on Sync Module

If you see a solid green and blue light on your Sync Module, it means the device is connected to Wi-Fi and the internet connection is working properly.

You don’t need to do anything (like troubleshooting) on the device when you see these lights.

No Lights on Sync Module

If you don’t see any lights on your Sync Module, the device has no power.

Check the power outlet and turn it on—if needed. Your Sync Module should turn on now, and you’ll see some lights on the device.

But if you still don’t see any lights, unplug the power cord and plug it back in. Still no lights? Try unplugging it from the current power outlet and plug it into another outlet.

Your Sync Module should turn on and display some lights. If not, your power cord or the device itself might be faulty. Contact Blink Custom Support and report the problem.
