Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
I have a cottage and go there once in a while. I have friends coming with cars, with kids, they play in the yard, we eat outside, etc. I have 5 Reolink cameras and it’s a pain to go to settings and disable the notifications for each camera when I get there, then to reenable them when I leave….. if I don’t forget.BTW there is no way to set a private area… - I would suggest to Reolink developers the following (a very very simple to implement in their app):Most of us use Alexa or Google. Wouldn’t be nice to have one global parameter in the Reolink app, let’s call it Enable/Disable all Alarms and Recording, or Pause Alarms and Recording.This global parameter could be switched on of off by an Alexa or Google voice command. Alexa Enable / Disable Reolink Alarms.I could do this from my car on my way there. How are you guys doing this? Isn’t this a pain? Do you back me up on this?Should we propose this to Reolink?
@user_720647334826202_720647334826202 There was a survey to improve the existing scene mode as per article https://community.reolink.com/topic/6233/survey-on-reolink-app-scene-mode?post_id=23852&_=1695324355660I have requested to add both schedule and status to the current scene mode. I did also requested geofencing............but I don't think we will see this.Have a look at 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/
@joseph_1979 Hi,thanks for the scene information. I did create two scenes one to enable and one to disable Reolink cameras, etc.So that is good at least I can do what I want much faster using the scenesBut in the Alexa app when I click discover Scenes, the Reolink scenes are not discovered, so there is no way to use Alexa voice commands to execute a scene, as I do for other devices that have scenes.So the Reolink Skill for Alexa is quite limited.maybe this could be improved in the future….
@user_720647334826202_720647334826202 Good that I was of some help. Unfortunately the scene mode is a feature for Android application. In my opinion there is more to be done when it come to interfacing with 3rd parties applications.What I suggest you is to submit your request on https://support.reolink.com/requests/
@joseph_1979 For me it works as well in iOS applications not only in android apps
