Where to install the 360° Reolink Fisheye? Here are recommended Positions
I have the 16 channel NVR (H3MB18) and there are a few things I would love to see in future firmware releases.- Direct access to cameras behind the NVR. Either by allowing them to get a dhcp address from the network (not from the NVR itself) or somehow bridging the NVR network to the local lan.- In the newer (current) firmware, the NVR can automatically update the NVR firmware. I'd like to see automatic camera firmware update implemented as well. Looking through all of the revisions for all of the cameras, updating is kind of a pain once you start mixing different models on the NVR. Especially when you have to download the update file, copy to a usb drive, hook a monitor and mouse up just to update.- This goes with above, but right now we can't update the camera firmware unless in front of the NVR itself. This isn't ideal as a lot of people have NVRs tucked away and don't always have a monitor nearby or connected to them. If we could manually update the camera firmware via the desktop client, this would be awesome. If we had direct access to the cameras behind the NVR this would also be a lot easier to update the cameras.- Be able to rearrange the camera channel numbers in the client. Right now this can be done, but again, only directly on the NVR. I'd like to basically be able to do EVERYTHING through the client that you can do as if you were sitting in front of the NVR itself. I think these are really the only things left.Thanks for listening!John
+1I would like to see all this added at some point as I also do not have a monitor and mouse always connected to the NVR. Good summary John!
Your request has been collected. Engineering is reviewing the feasibility of implementing this idea. We’ll schedule to implement the request if it’s accepted. We really appreciate your suggestions.
When I update cameras I tend to do this:-Connect laptop to the NVR POE ports, disconnecting one of the 8 cameras to do so.-Statically assign laptop to 172.16.25.101-Open Reolink client and add cameras I want to update-Update camera firmware from client direct connected to camera
Also, is there a way on the new client to snip a recording like you can with the old one? The old one made it very convenient to snip a minute or so of what I actually wanted. I can't seem to figure out how to do it on the new client, unless it's just not an option.
Thank you for the ideas, we will forward your suggestions and request to the R&D department. We will work hard to improve the products.
