Why Do My Blink Cameras Keep Disconnecting From Wi-Fi?
If you are facing an issue between the Wi-Fi network and your Blink cameras, it could be because of the weak signals, so in order to fix that you need to power-cycle your Wi-Fi router.
All you need to do to power-cycle your Wi-Fi router is unplug it from the outlet, wait 1 minute, and plug the cord back in.
In addition, if you still see your Blink camera disconnecting from your Wi-Fi network, you should limit the number of devices connected to your network in order to boost performance.
All the Blink devices including the Blink cameras require a strong Wi-Fi network, maybe of a 2.4 GHz frequency. Blink cameras specifically need a strong and stable network for optimal performance as it supports Live Views and upload motion clips in great quality.
If power-cycling and disconnecting unnecessary devices didn’t work, you should consider moving the Blink Cameras closer to the Wi-Fi router, however, if that is too troublesome to do, you should install a Wi-Fi booster or extender.
Wi-Fi extenders will help cover the area that wasn’t being covered whatsoever, in addition, extenders are also known to improve and strengthen the signals and improve performance, so if your Blink cameras are getting disconnected repeatedly, you should consider getting an extender.
