Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
it just happend on day...all of our 10 reolink cams, argus2 and argus pt, stopped to record movies and sending email.the connection to the cams for live view, pir alarm with push and also test emails are working correct, just no mail, no recording. except, connected to a cam by live view when cam detects movement, then an email is sent.unfortunately the reolink support is not able to help to fix this problem.how is such a thing possible? how comes they do not know what makes the cams behave like that!?does anyone know similar situation and have experience about how to fix it?
Hi, could you please provide your ticket number or your email dress to us. We would help contact the support team to help.
hi cynthiathe ticket number is 490449.they tried to help but could not solve the problem.
We have contacted the support team to further look into this specific case. Our support has replied to your email. Please check. We hope we can solve the problem for you soon.
This problem is still not solved – seems Reolink cannot solve this issue at all!We own 10 of your cams, spent a lot of money then all of them stopped to send email and recording and you cannot fix the problem!can you please tell me, when you delivered system-/firmware updates for the cams?
Hi, we have contacted support to deal with this specific case. Have you received the email from our support on June 11st? Please check and see the given request. If the problem remains, welcome to contact us.
hi cynthiayes, contact is always made but the problem persists and cannot get solved.I am very disapointet and do not understand – all the cams are working well about live view and alarming but email and recording.why can you not fix it and why do you always want to have anything done breaching data security?can you please answer my question about the past firmware-/software-update timeline on the cams!?our cams were set to automatic updates and I want to know when this happend!thank you!
Hi there, thank you for your quick reply. We have received few cases about the email problem like you. So it may exist some other problem. So we may need further checks on this specific problem. Could you please provide your UID and p[censored]word for us to check? We know that you may worry about the privacy problem. But we promise to protect your privacy and you can change your p[censored]word after we check as soon as possible. Awaiting your reply on ticket #490449.
sorry cynthia, to give out uid and p[censored]word of the cams is impossible – you have to fix this issue another way!what could fix the problem for the other users/customers?what about my question for timetable of updates!?
going to try it for another time.this isssue is not at all solved since about three months! and I do not get any answer for my question!I want to know, when did reolink update the cams with setting "auto update" last few times and I also want to know how to downgrade reolink cams to make our 10 cams working again after 3 months of not doing what they are actually built and bought for!as for now, reolink products seem to be some kind of buggy and reolink support is actually useless if you are not ready to share uid and p[censored]word with them (not sure they can help even they get the information).hope there will be a better choice soon.
Hi there, you can turn off the auto-upgrade of the camera. Then it will not upgrade automatically. For your problem, it may need your cooperation to work with the problem. Our service team is waiting for your reply on ticket #490449. Please check your email box on June 11st. Thank you for your patience!Reolink Cynthia
Mastercam---do you happen to have Comcast?This exact same situation happened to us in mid June. All of a sudden our recordings stopped. And can't even access via apps. I tried a new NVR, new hard drive, still no success. I can still watch live feeds, like you. But not on the app.I wonder if our internet service provider, Comcast in my case, changed something. Or was it Reolink?I feel your frustration.
hi susanne251thank you for that information – I could just not believe to be alone with this problem.for us, everything is working fine, except recording movies and sending e-mails (test e-mails are sent without any problem) – means the cams are reachable over internet to have live view, they send alarm on the phones and we can also send test e-mails.they just stopped to send alarm e-mails with pictures and recording movies in case of an alarm from may 8 this year. all the cams, we own 10 of them, stopped at the same time even 7 of them were already one your old and 3 we bought just in february.I do not think this is a problem of the internet service provider. we do not know what happend and reolink is not able or willing to clearify the cause of the problem – as recommended we set the cams to auto update. a big mistake I think. reolink still does not tell me when they exactly rolled out software to know the possibility of a bug as reason for that unbelievable situation.it seems to be a chinese problem – they can produce and sell products but the do not know at all to serv customers who pay their income – really sad.as soon as we find another usefull product we will change to a better system.the behaviour of reolink is not acceptable at all.what about you, could you solve your issue, for example by resetting the cams as recommendet by reolink?did you also use auto update with your cams?what model of cam are you using?anyone else with similar experiences?
No, you're not alone. For me I don't think mine are communicating with the internet. I can't access the app, in addition to not recording.I have the RLN8-410 NEW nvr and just got it a few weeks ago.I've had a tech company here trying to fix it and $350 later, nothing.I'm going to exchange my Comcast router on Monday or Tuesday. If that doesn't fix it, I don't know what will.(I can't remember which update we did. But this quit recording on June 2.)
hi cynthiathank you for that – yes, we can turn off the auto-update of the camera, but this would mean we will not get new and better features, wich, compared to other similar products, are needed!I think you are responsible to keep the cams working when you roll out software updates!Please answer my question about a list of all software updates within this year (2021) to finally find out the root cause of the problem! sorry to say that but your support is useless!
hi susanne251anything new with your case?did you exchange your router already?is the cam working again?
Hi Mastercam;So there have been some updates. I got a new HDD that I added to our new NVR. Still no change. But suddenly on July 30th my NVR started recording again. The red light is still flashing on the front though.Yesterday we got a new modem from Comcast. Still recording but I still can’t connect via the app or on one of my computers.So the NVR is not connecting to the Internet via the Ethernet cable. (We checked the Ethernet port to make sure it’s working and it is.)At this point I think it’s the NVR..even though it’s new. Any updates on your end?Any change in your
hi susanne2512no big updates here yet – the support still did not deliver but at least stopped to ask for uid and p[censored]word. they promised to try to find the cause of problem. lets see...all the cams still do not record but one cam sent some emails, not when an alarm occurred but when the lens was totally covered by a big leave of a plant on a windy day.today i updated the reolink app on iphone but also there no difference.have to be patient and hope reolink support can find the cause of problem soon.hope you can get your system to work correctly soon!
