Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Hi,I use Argus 3 (pro) and Argus 2 cameras.The Argus 3/has a better resolution, can detect people and vehicles, etc.The Argus 2 reacts much faster than the 3. I also noticed that "high" recordings start later than "low."Argus 2 are also recognized small animals, which unfortunately remain undetected in the Argus 3.Now I'm considering getting another Argus PT or PT 2k.Can someone give a rating and name advantages and or disadvantages?I read that PT is comparable to the Argus 3 (without pan&tilt of course)Does this also apply to the accuracy of recognition?Thank you for your reviews/evaluationGreetingG.

My Argus 3 Pro detects cats, even when they are not close to the camera. Do you have smaller animals (mice, hamsters…)️As for the startup time, it's the same here: about 2 seconds for High and Low.
@gmac71624_538988406644942 as an example i got an argus 2 at one corner of the house and an argus 3 pro at the other corner, with the argus 2 i can see a rabbit hoppeling in direction to the argus 3 pro (and past). The argus 3 pro sees nothing.thanks for your post
@rob-vallone where do I find the new firmware for my Argus 2PK cameras?I looked on the Download site of Reolink and the product isn’t listed.
@james_469641658028270 You can contact support and send camera system information to them. Then they will offer.
I have four Argus 2 cameras and an Argus PT (2k). I replaced one of my Argus 2 at the same location with the PT (2K). I mainly use them to capture critters that wonder into my yard. Argus PT (2K) vs Argus 2 Pros:. Better image detail and better night vision.. Smart Motion detection (Person/Vehicle). Great for limiting alerts and works well.. Pan and Tilt. Great for alignment of image where you want it.. 16x digital zoom vs 6x for the Argus 2 Argus PT (2K) vs Argus 2 Cons:. Slower to wake up and record.. WIFI connection seems a little bit touchier.. Larger in size (Not a big deal for me).. The battery is not replaceable. The PT (2k) is superior except for the slower wakeup time to record. Which is a decrement in capturing the quick moving critters moving thru the image.
