How do you turn off night vision on Blink?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

To turn off night vision on a Blink camera, follow these steps:

1. Open the Blink app on your smartphone or tablet.
2. Tap the camera settings icon, which is typically represented by a gear or cogwheel icon.
3. Scroll down the settings screen until you find the “NIGHT VISION” section.
4. In this section, you will see options to control the IR LED (Infrared Light Emitting Diode) of the camera.
5. By default, the IR LED is set to automatically turn on when the light is low. If you wish to disable night vision completely, you can simply toggle the switch to the “off” position.
6. Once you have turned off night vision, the camera will no longer use infrared light to capture images or videos in the dark. Instead, it will rely solely on available ambient light.
7. Keep in mind that without night vision, the camera’s performance in low light conditions may be reduced, and the resulting images or videos may appear darker or grainier.
8. If you ever want to re-enable night vision, you can simply toggle the switch back to the “on” position.

It’s worth noting that disabling night vision may be useful in situations where you want to capture more natural-looking footage in low light or when using external lighting sources. However, it’s important to consider the specific requirements of your surveillance needs and the environment in which the camera is placed.

Additionally, it’s recommended to experiment with different settings and test the camera’s performance in various lighting conditions to find the optimal configuration for your specific needs.
