New Reolink Client v.8.8.5 - Auto Upgrade Client Feature!
After recommending a ReoLink outdoor camera to a friend I purchased an E1 Zoom myself.All appears fine, the control software (App, Windows, built-in server) are good and easy to operate.Yet I have at issue with the IR (infrared) function: after finishing the setup and using the camera for a few days the IR toggle function (Auto, Off) did no ,longer respond.
