Hello @tkhkbn, the Duo WiFi battery-powered cameras are not shipped yet. I am sorry for the delay caused by the chip shortage and congestion at ports. Our team will send you an email with shipping details later. If there are any updates on the shipping of the Duo cameras, I will definitely share the latest news with you. Let me know if you have any additional questions or ideas.
Hi again Have now tested with another usb cable and it works perfect 🙂 So where must have been a failure in the first i tried with.... Have one camera connected with a powersupply 5V/700 mAH and it seems to work okay. Do you think one should use powersupply with higher Ampere like the one you have tested with?
Appreciate it if you can provide some pictures on how the camera was mounted and what it looked like from the camera angle. The communities are able to share thoughts with more information provided here.
Well...I finally got around to make the mod on my two cameras. The first camera unfortunately showed only a black screen in the app after booting up - firmware reset was a mistake, since it won't recognize the QR code for it's setup. Sigh. The second one worked just fine.
So, success rate of 50% - or does anyone have a good idea?
P.S.: Either I missed it in the guide or this might be helpful: unclip the white clips holding the wires from the motherboard, that makes the soldering easier. Reattatching is easy!
Yes - all good points. Most important element of all is the lens. A high quality, large aperture (relative to the image sensor) lens is critical to picture quality. Also, color depth. HDR10 makes a huge difference. Reolink has plans for optical zoom - which is very important. Another very important thing is HDR - high dynamic range. Log profiles (gamma curve) technology has a huge impact on video quality. So - true enough - picture quality is critical. But, as you point out - image compression is important because if you want to get the image somewhere wirelessly you are going to need to squeeze it down to some reasonable size - so H.265 compression is the only way to go. And 5Ghz wifi isn't going to cut it because it can't go through walls very well and so you'll probably be using 2.4Ghz to get a reasonable distance from the camera. But I will say - it is amazing that our farm - which is waaay out in the middle of nowhere gets a great cellular LTE signal from AT&T.
Thank you for your feedback. Glad to hear your problem has been solved by yourself. If you have other problems during operation, you can leave the message here or contact our support team: firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance. Thanks.
In addition to being only 2.4 GHz, their camera designs only use one spatial stream (which is why you may have noticed the connection with the camera tops out at 72.2 Mbps, that is the maximum rate for a single spatial stream on 802.11n). So, the camera is forced to transmit and receive on a single spatial stream. If you try to run the WiFi camera at 1080P, it just can't handle it. Also, the antennas they include really aren't great, they are only 2 dBi. Also, just as a point, the connectors on the cameras are RP-SMA, not SMA. If you try to use an SMA antenna, it will literally never work.
Wow! Thank you for sharing great advice! I was just thinking about this. So once again thank you! I will be glad if I help someone too.
