Can You Have More Than One Blink Doorbell?

Last Updated Aug 8, 2022
Two doors next to each other

In recent years, Amazon’s Blink Doorbell has skyrocketed in terms of popularity. A perfect addition to any home security system, the Blink Doorbell is a perfect choice to keep your home safe while you are away. However, if you have a larger house with more than one exterior door, you may be wondering if you can install multiple Blink Doorbells.

You can install multiple Blink Doorbells in your home. With a basic Blink account, you can sync up to ten Blink Doorbells in the Blink app at once. With a monthly Blink subscription, you can sync an unlimited number of Blink devices on the same Blink account.

Below, we will discuss how you can set up more than one Blink Doorbell in your home, as well as the benefits you will reap doing so. Keep reading to learn more!

Can You Have Multiple Blink Doorbells?

You can sync up to ten Blink Doorbells to your Blink account without a subscription. However, if you have a larger home with more security needs, you may want to consider pursuing a Blink Plus subscription. This will allow you to sync an unlimited number of Blink devices to one account, as long as you have the right number of Sync Modules to support it.

How Do You Add a Second Blink Doorbell?

After purchasing your second Blink Doorbell, you will need to set it up on the Blink app. Follow the steps below to do so:

  • Open the Blink app on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Select the “Add Device” icon.
  • Scan the QR code on your new doorbell.
  • Choose which WiFi network you wish to connect the new device to. Ensure you choose the same network as your other Blink Doorbell.
  • Select “Connect.”

Repeat this process for each doorbell you wish to connect to the Blink app. Whether you’re adding a Blink Doorbell with or without a Blink Plus subscription, you can follow the same steps. 

Can You View Multiple Blink Camera Feeds at Once?

Although you can connect multiple Blink Doorbells to the same Blink account, it is not possible to view multiple Blink camera feeds at the same time. You can, however, switch between video feeds easily through the Blink app. 

To view a Blink Doorbell’s camera feed, open the Blink app and select the camera feed you would like to view from the homepage. When you are ready to watch another camera’s feed, just repeat the process.

How Many Blink Doorbells Do I Need?

The number of Blink Doorbells recommended for your home will depend on several factors, including your lifestyle and the size of your home. You may need multiple Blink Doorbells if you have a vacation home, own an Airbnb, or are away from home frequently. A Blink Doorbell can help you monitor your properties and protect you from robberies and break-ins when you are not there.

It may also be a good idea to install multiple Blink Doorbells if you have children or other vulnerable people living in your home. If you leave your children or young teenagers home alone for long periods of time, these smart doorbells can help you make sure they stay safe. With a Blink Doorbell at each door, you can see exactly who approaches your property or talks to your children.

In addition to vulnerable people, multiple Blink Doorbells can help you protect any valuable items in your home. If you have multiple entrances into your home, adding a Blink Doorbell at each will allow you to see anyone who may be casing your home to find the best entrance point for a robbery. 

Why Won’t My New Blink Doorbell Connect to My Blink System? 

There is always a chance that you will run into issues when trying to add a new Blink Doorbell to an existing Blink system. If you are having trouble syncing your new device to the Blink app, the first thing you should do is check your WiFi connection. In general, Blink products will only operate at 2.4 GHz frequency. 

Another common reason Blink Doorbells do not connect is due to a low battery. These smart doorbells run on batteries, which need to be replaced periodically. In general, the batteries your doorbell comes with will last approximately two years before they need to be replaced, but you can always check the battery status in the Blink app if you suspect that this is the issue.

In Conclusion

Blink Doorbells are a great addition to your home security system. If you have multiple entrances into your home, installing more than one Blink Doorbell can add an extra layer of security to protect vulnerable people or valuable possessions. You can sync up to ten Blink Doorbells on the same account without a subscription, and unlimited Blink Doorbells with a Blink Plus subscription.
