RLC-823A & RLC-523WA Tracking Beta 4.0 Firmware: Added Auto-tracking Horizontal Range & Schedule
Hello,I'm the owner of two Lumus and one RLC-510WA cameras.I would like to add one more Wi-Fi camera with or without battery that has at least the same night vision sensitivity and sight as Lumus.The RLC-510WA is a disappointment from this point of view, although it has 18 infrared LEDs it sees far less and least clear than the Lumus with 6 infrared LEDs (I assume the CMOS sensors in Lumus is better).Spotlight is not going to be used even if available, during the night there is no source of light nearby.The camera will be used to capture wildlife.Any suggestions?Best regards,Dan
@dan_325583698763994 Hi there, you can try to adjust the stream setting, resolution, FPS, and Bitrate to be higher. Also, you can upgrade your camera firmware to the latest version. You can find the firmware on our download center, Download Center – Reolink.
@reolink-fiona I have the latest firmware version, and tried playing with all the possible settings using both the desktop app and mobile app with low high bitrate, resolution, saturation, brightness,.... but it does not get any closer to Lumus.Which Wi-Fi camera has the night vision at least as Lumus ?The shipment cost to return a camera is to high from my country, if I I'm not satisfied.
@dan_325583698763994 You can try RLC-523WA, which is with color night vision(up to 190ft). https://reolink.com/product/rlc-523wa/Or RLC-511WA, which is with color night vision(up to 100ft). https://reolink.com/product/rlc-511wa/
It's hard to describe the feeling of walking into your house after a long day of work, slipping off your shoes, and relaxing on the couch—finally able to exhale.But then you realize… there's something wrong. You don't quite know what it is… but something doesn't feel right. So you get up, walk around, check things out… and suddenly freeze in place.You've found the source of your unease: a strange, creepy camera tucked away in the corner of your living room. But who put it there? And why? Is it some kind of bug? Or even worse—is someone using it to spy on you and your family?
I have had good results with separate IR lights, such as Tendelux (from Amazon in the US). They tend to draw bugs away from the camera lens and I disable the camera IR LEDs. One key is to ensure that the IR light puts out the same frequency light as the Reolink cameras. (I used to know what it was, but cannot find that 3x5 card anymore. IR comes in 850 and 940)Color night vision is independent of the IR LEDs. If there is not enough visible light for the camera, it switches to 'night mode' (no color). If you want color at night, there needs to be a source of visible light.Also, the PIR detection range is given as 21 feet, so the ability to shine light Waaaaay out there, is not going to result in more video captures.And for animals, detecting even a bear at 100ft. will be a tiny object in the video.
