Blink Mini Pan and Tilt Mount Adds a New Life to the Blink Mini

The Blink Mini Pan and Tilt Mount was released in 2023 to breathe more life into the already popular Blink Mini home security camera.

We reviewed the Blink Mini and liked it a lot.  It’s bargain priced, has a lot of application functionality and is great for adding a wired option to the Blink arsenal.

The Blink Mini Pan and Tilt Mount can point left and right and up and down.  It’s totally controlled from the application.  Blink lacks one of these cameras.  Rather than come out with a new camera, they introduced this mount.  For that already have the camera and embedded into the Blink ecosystem, this is a worthwhile addition.

Blink Pan and Tilt Mount Overview

A Blink Mini Pan and Tilt Mount is featured in the photo that accompanies this article.   The stand will double the overall size of the camera.  A Blink Mini is already attached.  The camera is not included with the mount.  That must be purchased separately but many likely already have one as these are extremely popular.

Installation is easy.  Detach the Blink Mini from the existing stand.  Do that by grabbing the camera with one hand and the stand with your other hand.  Now pull.

This exposes the attachment that connect to the Blink Mini Pan and Tilt Mount.  There is an included short cable to power the camera from the stand.

This mount fully functions with the existing Blink app.  Setup is similar to the way you would setup a new camera.  Just find the Blink Mini Pan and Tilt Mount then add it in.  We find most Blink owners have other cameras from this manufacturer so you are likely already familiar with this part of the install.

Look at All the Fun Stuff You Can Do

The Blink Mini has a default field of vision of 110 degrees.  Adding the Blink Mini Pan and Tilt Mount triples this.  You can move the camera left, right, up and down.  That is all done from the Blink app.  After selecting your new camera in the app, a pan menu with four arrows appears allowing the user to move the camera wherever it’s needed.

Another great feature only available with this mount is the 360 Pan.  Access this feature through the “More” button.  The camera will do a complete pan of the room.  First panning all the way to the right then slowly going all the way to the left.  A complete view of the room.

There is also a Default View option in the “More” section.  This allows the user to select the resting position of the camera after performing a 360 Pan.

These are features found in a typical pan and tilt camera.  It’s a nice way to improve the coverage of your existing Blink Mini camera.

Is it Worth It?

We think it is.  Especially for those with a spare Blink Mini floating around or are deeply embedded in the Blink ecosystem.

It’s a specialized mounting solution only for owners of the Blink Mini.  Now if someone would come out with a generic pan and tilt camera mount that would attach to other home security cameras with the tripod connection pattern, they would make a fortune.
