Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
*********Model RLC-410-5MPBuild No. 20121100Hardware No. IPC_51516M5M*********Hi community. Hope someone can help me:I'm trying to set up my cam as a "normal" webcam (automatic picture upload every x minutes via FTP – previous pic is replaced with the latest one. Filename i.e. "webcampic.jpg" should always stay the same, so that the path can be referred to in html). The pic-path is then hardcoded via "img src" on a html-webpage in order to show the latest pic on my website. Since I don't think, that the reolink team has forgotten to implement this rudimentary all-time feature that normally comes with every lowtier cam: Could someone tell me where to activate this mode in the settings menu?The only option I see is the >>alarm-triggered<< filetransfer for pics/video with dynamic filenames (unique date and time + .jpg)Thanks in advance for your help!
@user_615408209375314_615408209375314 When you activate FTP you should have image resolution, transmit interval and overwrite filename.
@joseph-chircop_497308027822318 Hi Joseph. Thanks for your reply. But I don't know, where to set the transmission interval and filename you mentioned. Screenshot attached. There is no box where the respective filename could be entered. And far as I understand, the timetable an the bottom is used to activate/deactivate the FTP-upload triggered by motion detection – but not for setting fix autonomous ftp transmission intervals, without motion detection. For reference a screenshot from my cheap IP-cam i bought at ALDI – where the filename („dateiname“) and the interval can be configured.
@user_615408209375314_615408209375314 Hereunder please find the fields I was referring to. Ensure you select all the time under timer. Note that this is available for video and image depends upon your selection. You can also store the file in same directory too.
@joseph-chircop_497308027822318 Cool. That's exactly what I'm looking for. But: These fields which you showed me on the screenshot are not available in my FTP section . See vid attached ->
@user_615408209375314_615408209375314 Did you check with support whether you have the latest firmware? Maybe this has been added in a beta version and has not been released unless requested. The Chinese Golden Week has p[censored]ed now and so they should reply within 2 days.
@user_615408209375314_615408209375314 Good point… Didn't ask them directly for a beta version by now. According to the firmware page, 126.96.36.199 is the latest stable version for the model (no public update since 12/2020). Let's see what the support replies… Thank you very much for your help
I know of no method to set a constant FTP file name on the Reolink RLC cameras. (Battery powered cameras do not support FTP at all.)(Lack broad experience with web cams, but some brands such as Wyze and Arlo also lack FTP.)The effect you seek may be possible some other way, such as:
