Product Roadmap: What's Coming Next
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
Anyone in the community or in Reolink who can tell us users, if and when geofencing is in the application roadmap? Alarm and sensitivity timers are nice, but needs planning. We need a system that can be deactactivated and activated when users are home vs away.
@user_722724860186806_722724860186806 I have been asking support for such a feature and had no feedback on when it shall be implemented. Surely it is in the list but I guess the priority is minimal. Kindly send a request to reolink support.
@user_722724860186806_722724860186806 Do you know about scene modes? You can select some or all cameras to be turned on/off with one b**ton. In the phone app pull the cameras live view down, scene modes is on top of them. I use scene mode to turn off cams when I am mowing the yard or in the garden. I have heard about geofencing but don't know much about it. I a*sume such programs might be pricey. If it needs facial recognition, device/phone recognition to be able to determine who is coming and going, I wonder how reliable it can be. Faces can be altered with hats, gla*ses or hidden, phones can be left in the house, turned off or not connect. Reolink detection zones are kind of like a fence, you decide where you want motion alerts to occur. https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026049414-What-is-Scene-Mode-and-How-to-Set-the-Scene-Mode-for-Your-Cameras-on-Reolink-App/
@user_722724860186806_722724860186806 As far as I am concerned, Reolink is not planning to add geofencing to its cameras or software. If there is any other news, I will let you know.
@md They need to embed the geofencing API in their Android and IOS clients which shall allow the user to define parameters (geofences) which surround the areas of interest (house). The Reolink app gets a notification when the smartphone crosses a geofence and this allows the client to alarm or dis-alarm the cameras. Scene mode is fine but it should be further enhanced to include status and a flexible scheduling. And if switched off there should be a notification(s) that the scene mode has been disabled so one won't forget. This is all software and can easily be added.
@md For the latest update, the geo-zoning feature is not yet available, you may have to wait quite a long time for this feature.
