A very telling article about cameras.

As a newcomer to Reolink cameras (but not to computing or imaging fields) I'm reading most of the info I can find about it. So I have reached an interesting article about "7 signs that remind you to upgrade your outdated security camera system". Among these worrying signs there are two to be highlighted:
#5. Use Traditional Wired Technology: "With the rapidly-advancing technology, there are 100% truly wire-free security cameras even for outdoor use which adopts long-lasting batteries".
Great!, I have bought four Reolink battery-powered cameras just for that reason. But wait, shockingly enough...
#2. No Remote Viewing via Web Browser: "But if you can only remotely visit your security camera via mobile phone, your security system is a little out of style. More and more security cameras can now be easily accessed on web browsers."
Oh, my God... then my new cameras recently bought are already OUTDATED BY DEFAULT, even fresh off the factory floor!
Seriously now, when will we have web access and FTP uploading in our battery-powered cameras? And, please, no, the battery power is not a valid excuse anymore: most of us have solar panels and anyway the energy consumption for those tasks is not higher than for current remote client access and uploading to the cloud, respectively.
Alas so, almost forget, the article is there: https://reolink.com/signs-your-security-system-is-outdated/
