Various Questions on the RLC-422 / reolink firmware options
i'm planing on securing my home with a little bit surveillance. I have some questions about the possibilities / General Firmware-Usage for the RLC-422
1.1 The camera has motion detection, but can it also record permanently and tore the files to a (local) NAS / FTP-Enabled
1.2 What would be the minimum Throughput for the Storage to capture 7-8 cameras 24/7?
(Since each camera only supports 100 Mbit, a "Gigabit-Supporting Storage" allowing for ~ 100 MB/s Disk-IO seems
1.3 Does the cameras firmware support "rotation"? (I.e. saying :filesize = 10 minutes, keep XY Files?)
1.4 Does the camera "stream" to the FTP / Storage, or does it (localy) complete a file, and then upload the file every X
2.1 In Germany it is illegal to capture parts of the neighbors lawn, or parts of the sidewalk, etc.
Does the firmware support areas that can be "blacked out" for the final recording?
Oh, is there a "Firmware-Demo" available online to play around with?
Based on my own tests with a RLC-420:
Yes, it can record permanently (use the FTP-Schedule-Option).
Yes, if the local NAS can provide FTP-Services, you are good to go.
As assumed, one camera requires about 8 MB/s with highest Settings.
The Firmware supports to rotate files on the local micro-sd. (Deleting the oldest file, once the card is full)
has no impact on the files already stored on the FTP-Server.
Mixed. A "Copy Delay" can be configured. Seems like files "missed" due to connection problems are not uploaded again.
Yes, is possible, but limited to 4 Areas per camera. (rectangles only, with no respect to camera orientation)
