RLN8-410 + RLC810 Alexa compatibility

After ordering and installing two RLC810 cameras and the RLN8-410 NVR, I unfortunately learned that it is not possible to connect the NVR to Alexa in order to view the cameras on Alexa enabled Smart TV's. The only way to do that would be to install an Ethernet POE switch/power injector in place of the NVR....thereby making my purchase of the NVR a complete waste of money. In addition to having to purchase the POE switch, I would also have to purchase SD cards for the cameras in order to record events.
My Alexa enabled TV's work great with Ring cameras....all I need to do while watching TV is to ask Alexa to show me the backyard and it immediately pops up on the screen. The 4K Reolink camera system I purchased is wonderful, but I hope that Reolink technicians will read this and make their NVR compatible with Alexa in the near future.
When you connect the NVR and the PoE switch under the same router and add the camera under the switch, you can add the camera to the NVR and add it as a standalone camera on the APP. Then you can add the camera to the Alexa. In this situation, the video will also record to the NVR. It is not a must to buy the SD card for the camera.
We have a plan to integrate Alexa with the NVR. If there is any news, we will let you know. Stay tuned!
