I have recently upgraded my RLC-410WS to the 511WA, and it is amazing. So many features and tweaks available, but the most impressive (and purpose of such a thing) is the video quality. Even on the default settings for fluent, it knocks the spots of the highest setting on my previous camera.
So my only gripe and reason for coming here is:
There is a setting for the spotlights to either be 'off', 'auto', or 'on as scheduled'. My system records 24/7, not just motion, and if you set it to 'on as scheduled', the light is on permanently during the set hours. Obviously, if it is set to 'auto', it comes on when it senses motion. Both are great, but due to the location, I want the light to be motion activated, but only between certain hours... at the moment it is one or other.
So that explains what I want to do, but is this forum monitored by reolink, or do they have a suggestions box anywhere for future updates? Thought i would ask here before using a generic contact email...
oh.....and Happy New Year!!!

@tazzy_423116622815407 agreed. There need to be more options for spotlight control. A schedule with a specific A is one for sure. Also, a separate detection zone specific to spot light as a light turning on for cars driving by on a public road is dangerous.
@reolink-lorenz Great - would be great to see an update based on user experiences
@reolink-lorenz I take it this missed the recent v18.104.22.1684 update?
@tazzy_423116622815407 Our team is still discussing whether and how to add the spotlight settings to the cameras now. It would take a long time for us to design and develop a new feature as we need to ensure its performance. We don't think 10 days would be enough for us to deliver a good feature. How do you think?
@reolink-lorenz No probably not, but I didn't know if you had been working on this previously. In a previous life I commissioned comms systems, some of which took up to 2 years before being released, so I appreciate things can take time.
