Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
You are making plenty camera's with HRD/WDRIn many situations the brightness of the background (in clear daylight) is much higer then the face of the erson at the door.This makes it impossible to recognize the person.I do not know a work around for this if any exist, but that is something essential for a doorbellAt this moment this is a showstopper for me.
@user_690336118845693_690336118845693 Would you be able to provide a video to the support so that they can improve the product?
@joseph_1979 I need to try to do so. Need to mout the doorbell on its final spot before I can. At this momen I can only make a small indoor clip with the window behind me.
This is a common problem with home security cameras. Doors with overhangs, porch roofs etc. can be very dark compared to background bright light, sunny sky. A face will be too shadowed to see it. Some brands have HDR/WDR setting. Depending how good the HDR/WDR function is, the benefit may or may not be enough to ID a face by the front door. Plus a bad guy could just lower his face with a cap or use a mask. Reolink app has a brightness control which will make the foreground brighter but the background may become brighter than you want.
I second this. I absolutely love nearly everything about this camera, but the lack of HDR is a huge hole. A person's face can hardly be made out in the daytime. Adjustments in the picture can be made to brighten up a person but at the expensive of "blowing out" the background.
@ryandanielwood_77905830711496 Submit your request to Reolink support. The more requests they have the higher the probability of implementation.
@ryandanielwood_77905830711496 This is a common issue with many brand cams. Some brands say they have HDR but they don't really work that great. Some cams that cost more have good HDR in my opinion. If this is the only cam you have, I suggest you install another cam above your garage door, etc. for multiple views. It's wise to have double coverage anyway.
