How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
Hello,I have my RLC-81PA hooked up to power and ran Ethernet cable from the camera to my main Internet modem and am still receiving "Connection Failed" when trying to connect. I do have the red IR lights and the spotlight does activate. I do not have this hooked to a NVR. Any thoughts?
RLC-81PA is one of the newest 8MP camera in the Reolink line up. Have you confirmed that this camera will work without a Reolink NVR?Most of the Reolink cameras that are 8MP or above (even if they have a TF slot) will only be accessible through a Reolink NVR which acts as a proprietary hub for these high data-stream cameras. I a*sume this is done intentionally so they can grow their eco-system and buy-in of their product line From a technical perspective, I am guessing that the NVR is acting as a hardware decoder to stream the h.265 compressed signal, to optimize the experience for users when doing a live view over cellular or wifi (the a*sumption is that not everyone carries the latest android or iphone that can decode h.265) The older 5MP or below cameras ARE accessible directly via an IP address, but they typically stream h.264
I have not confirmed it. Is there a way I could? This might be my issue, seems to me I have good direct Internet connection.
@axdrew_746904040513741 I would reach out directly to support, or maybe a moderator will have the answer...Would be nice if Reolink added this to their specifications, whether a camera will only work with Reolink NVR's or if it can work independently.
I do agree. My guess is that an NVR will need to be purchased for this camera $$$
