Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Is it possible, either via the camera, the Reolink NVR, or by some other means, to have the RCL-423 PTZ move to a patrol point (mark) on a time of day schedule. i.e. I'd like to point the camera at a particular location at the same time each day.For bonus points, moving to a mark on an astronomical event, e.g. dawn, sunset, would be excellent - my security camera would become a nice time-lapse cam as well.
So it's not possible via the Reolink clients, however it is relatively easy to do via the camera's (undocumented?) CGI commands.Here's a simple shell script that provides elementary control of a Reolink PTZ camera:gist github com/bdlow/5553b43037e2fcaacfa8b82a2e78e639It requires curl and jq.Usage:./camctrl.sh -i 192.168.1.99 -p secret -c TOPOS -m 1 -f snap.jpgWill move to position ID 1 and take a snapshot.Running this script from a cron job will do what I need.

We are sorry to tell you that our camera does not support this function (point the camera at a particular location at the same time each day). We will forward your request to the R&D team to evaluate. Hope that they can make improvements in the future.
