Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Hi, I am new to the forum but not video security. I started out in 2007 with several home usb cameras and moved to analog cameras in a PC with capture cards running zoneminder. I eventually went to a duel CPU windows server Blue Iris setup which has served me eell. I upgraded that over the years from 720p cameras to 1080p and now Reolink 4k cameras are filtering in. The server hardware was upgraded to a Raided Dell R410 with a combined total of 12 cores. I am also running one 48port UBNT POE switch and hope to go to a second. I have customized blue iris for motion detection and it works pretty well and now does motion detection on the substream saving CPU cycles. Here is the thing. The new Reolink detection is better and has no hit on the server CPU usage because it is done on the camera. While looking around online I found the upcoming RLN36. Awesome ideas since I already have a POE network segmented into a video VLAN that runs on a 10g backbone. So what is the timeline for this and how do the alarm ports work? Can I tie it into an automation system with those? IE I would love to save some electricity and just run the two CPUs in a fileserver with maybe blue iris temporarily running without motion detection on the reolink cameras and just push alerts to a hosted FTP server. Thoughts?
@user_612681119584296_612681119584296 May I know your country? I will help you to look at the stock. For the alarm in/alarm out functions, we have an article to clarify this function here. You can read for more info.https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/8973209726745-An-Introduction-to-Reolink-RLN36
@reolink-fiona You need to add a VOIP or GSM or PSTN Dialler to this RLN just in case the BB is somehow unavailable and be able to play recorded messages. Otherwise they need to trigger an external dialler through one of the 12V dc alarm outputs.
@reolink-fiona I am in the US. Central East Coast region.
I'm interested in the RLN36 because I already have a very capable POE switch, and want direct network access to the cameras in addition to the NVR.I live in Australia - could you please give an indication of stock availability there?
