I've owned a E1 Outdoor for three months. I like this camera and all the features. But I and others are having problems with auto tracking. Mine will track a person but sometimes gets stuck to far left or right and will not go back to guard point. This makes the camera useless being stuck. I have to manually use the PTZ button to get it to go back. It sometimes goes out of alignment, the guard points get off by about 10%-20% and it needs to recalibrate. I don't know if this is a firmware glitch or the plastic gears slip a little. I think the auto tracking function is not on current models. Does Reolink plan to update the auto tracking feature and fix it or just drop this feature for this camera? The night vision on this camera is not good, blurring with motion. I hope Reolink can improve this.I plan on buying the 823A when it's released. It has auto tracking. I hope auto tracking is reliable on the 823A, I will be disappointed if it has the same problem as the E1 Outdoor.
@mdunning_323765759099098 Thank you for your feedback on the camera. We will collect your problems and forward them to the team.
Just wondering if there has been any progress or intention of progress for the issues high lighted to Reolink?I would assume this amount of time has been more than enough to address.My short experience having recently got one of these the same thing happens as the OP. Night vision is not as clear as expected and moving objects are a blur. Having to retune the guard point here and there, is annoying. Tracking will not always return to the guard point, and I had an issue for a couple of days where in the morning the camera would be facing the wall making it useless. I set it back on track and found it back facing the wall again I also found it had somehow ditched my network and picked up a whole other network ip and gateway which is a worry. I could get onto it within the LAN im guessing being bound to the UID but it was temperamental until I did a factory reset and reconfigured. I could not access it externally till I picked up that the nerwork had changed "itself(?)"Seems ok now but for how long. My 30 day satisfaction return option is approaching fast and I am considering it if I am going to have to worry about this.On the positive tho the software and features are great! As a stationary camera I guess its good enough, but I didnt buy a stationary camera.
@sli1-ownzu_553389274583240 I have an E1 OD and sometimes the guard point deviates by 10 degrees, of course, it depends on the frequency of tracking objects. It may be attributed to the plastic gears rather than the stepping motor. Indeed it is annoying to manually set the guard point. If it was a firmware issue they would have certainly corrected it.
@joseph-chircop_497308027822318 Still feels as tho this should be something that can be corrected via firmware especially if you map an image based off the selected detection zone.Seems ok after the factory reset for me, although my other half likes to turn off the wifi at night and thius morning after turning the wifi back on it didnt want to connect till I restarted it at the power point. Its does have a static ip configured to it. I have another camera from another brand that never gives issues. It just works. Please fix the bugs Reolink....
