How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
I have a new Reolink Go PT on a 2GB @ $10/month T-Mobile plan in US.I am curious if anyone knows how manageable and useful camera can be once 2G kicks in after 2GB used?I understand live video may not be possible but what about simple motion detection to email? I would think this bandwidth would leave enough for simple 150k images.Not sure if this has been other's experience but to fully get account setup I had to put the SIM card in a phone to retrieve the SMS account code that T-Mobile sent out to the phone number.
We do not recommend using a 2G network, which may cause connection problems.
While I realize 2G is not recommended from Reolink it does work fine on T-Mobile (in my location) for streaming on lower resolution video. It also has no problem sending 250k snapshot images from motion detection. I have downgraded from the $10 2GB plan to the $5 512MB plan since the 2G speeds are sufficient for my use case. NOTE: Camera is still connected to a 4G network... it is just throttled back from full 4G speeds. I am still see some 4G speed bursts even after quota is exhaust. $5/month... a deal if you need this level of remote connectivity.
Thank you for sharing the information. For Reolink Go/Go PT, data usage depends on the bitrate you have set for the camera. The default bit-rate is 1.5 Mbps for the mainstream (up to 2 Mbps) and 160 kbps for the sub-stream (up to 512 kbps).With 1 GB of data plan, under the default settings, it can be used for continuous live video viewing for 1 hour in the mainstream type(clear mode). And about 10 hours in substream type(fluent mode). It is just for reference, the actual data usage is based on the actual working situation and also varies from different SIM card providers.
