Thanks for the info. I was kinda thinking that, 1.5v when not under load. I don’t get why I could view the camera live and take a screenshot fine, but motion wouldn’t work.

Sometimes, if the camera has a weak connection to your wireless router, it can cause the camera to record false motion clips. Increasing the retrigger time should resolve this issue.

Red Light Indicator. If your Live View fails or isn’t working correctly, there is a visual indicator that may help identify the issue. Most Blink camera models have an adjustable LED indicator light that represents the status of your device. For example, when it’s blue, the camera is actively recording events.
