Reolink App v4.41 Released
The antenna on my Reolink Go PT broke. I was told to order a replacement antenna from AliExpress as Reolink doesn't sell replacement antennas. I have ordered one and it is coming from China with an expected delivery time of 1 MONTH. The tracking shows that after 10 days it hasn't even made it to the US yet.My camera is unusable until the antenna gets here and I need it up and running now as it is a security camera. I cannot find a generic replacement antenna anywhere that will suffice in the meantime. I ordered 2 different kinds of antennas from Amazon that said they fit the Reolink Go but when I got them, they were both too big for the connection.(Dericam Universal 2.4G 5dBi WiFi Antenna for Security Camera/Router, WiFi Booster, Removable Antenna, Wireless Range Expander, RP-SMA Female Connector Inside, 5dBi, White)(Bingfu 4G LTE Cellular Trail Camera Antenna 9dBi RP-SMA Male (2-Pack) Compatible with Spypoint Link Micro Solar EVO Link S Dark Flex Wildlife Hunting Game Cam Outdoor Mobile Security Camera)Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can find a replaceement antenna for my Go PT camera?
@deirdre_509993927315611 Do a search and you will find it. Gumtree, aliexpress, etc. You may opt for an external LTE antenna.
@deirdre_509993927315611 Did you try at gumtreedotcom? They have it. Replace dot by . as it is restricted to include a link.
Since the Go PT is an LTE camera, only an LTE antenna will fit. Can you post a picture of the connector? If it is a typical SMA connector, there are scads of them on Amazon.
One reason to post a picture is to determine the 's*x' of the connector. For example, the WiFi antenna mentioned above appears to have a Female SMA connector and the LTE antenna has a Male connector. (a) I doubt very much that a WiFi antenna will work at all (no matter the s*x), and (b) an LTE antenna has to connect to the PT Go connector on the case.For example, this is the connector on a WiFi antenna from an RLC-410W. Notice that it is clearly female. If Reolink followed a consistent pattern when attaching antennas, then my guess is that a female LTE antenna is required. The only way to know is to look at the antenna.By the way, although Reolink used a bendable antenna that is is fairly attractive (and color matched), there appear to be conflicting goals:
An antenna with a short flexible cable could probably be delivered by Amazon in 48 hours and "fill in" until that exact replacement arrives by slow boat from China.
@crimp-on_62210811129 I emailed Reolink, again, and they told me the size of the connector needed on the LTE antenna is 1/4”-36UNS. I have done a search on amazon but cannot find that specific number in any descriptions. I have already bought 2 unusable antennas and have had to return them.Thank you so much for your help!
Anyone using an external antenna? io games
@user_651765663420508_651765663420508 I have the Riolink Go PT and this one from Amazon worked for me, it was only $14.99 in April 2023…Search: Bingfu 4G LTE 7dBi RP-SMA Male Antenna Outdoor Fixed Bracket Wall Mount Antenna Compatible with 4G LTE Wireless Router Cellular Trail Camera Game Camera Outdoor Security Camera
@handsofenvy_396103587541237 Please, did it increase the signal strength compared to the standard one? Thanks
Can a MIMO LTE Antenna be used as well? I think MIMO antennas have 2 cables, so I think the answer is NO, but I would like to ensure what a better antenna I should buy to increase the 4G signal strength and stability.Thanks
@jfbaro_664228245382261 I think "no". This camera has a single antenna. MIMO requires more than one antenna. For example, the Reolink Duo 4G has two antennas.
