How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
Has anyone had success connecting a non Reolink camera to a RLN36 NVR? Is it ONVIF compatible? I only see ip protocol listed in the add camera routine. I’ve played with connecting one of my old Foscam cameras to it without success. Being the Foscam might be worse than Reolink as far as making their products incompatible with anyone else, it may not be a good barometer. That’s why I ditched Foscam. I live stream a Reolink RLC-842A on YouTube via RTSP of a view of the mountain (4 Peaks) in my backyard for a weather page from my weather station. The camera and station are mounted on a 40’ antenna tower. The 5x optical zoom of the RLC-842A doesn’t do it justice. I used to do the same thing way back in the analog days with a real lens that had a 30x zoom. Did it until it got too hard to keep up. With Youtube live it is very easy to do now.I think the best Reolink can do is 16x. The HXVIEW PTZ has a 30x Optical Zoom and is RTSP/ONVIF capable. I can for sure stream it on YouTube live but I’d really like to see and record it on my RLN36. If I can’t it will like my old Ring doorbell cam. Had it for a long time and it did the job. But I love being able to see and record the doorbell cam on my NVR like I can now with my Reolink doorbell cam. I wish Reolink would build a camera with a good optical zoom range.
