@reolinkshayla I really like my Reolink cameras, great value for the price. Reolink releases new cams every year with new features and firmware updates. Reolink customer service to good too. However, every business, no matter what they sell, can have problems sometimes. The E1 Outdoor is a good cam but it has a flaw which Reolink knows about but has not fixed. The prior E1 Outdoor versions cannot go back to monitor point reliably, there is degree drift. It's very frustrating for users. I don't know if it's a firmware or hardware problem. At the very least Reolink should put it in the cam specs there can be monitor set point drift. It hurts Reolink's reputation to continue to sell a cam with a problem. I hate to criticize Reolink because overall I like the brand. But I will be honest, I would not recommend any E1 Outdoor model unless they fix this problem. Those reading this can watch YouTube channel LifeHackster who reviewed the E1 Outdoor and shows this problem. I have an 823A 5x which is a better camera, better motor and does not have point drift. Buy a POE 823A rather than a E1 Outdoor in my opinion.
@md I wholly agree with you and as you said they have fantastic camera considering the price. However, when it comes to tracking the cameras sometimes don't return to the configured monitor point. This applies to E1 OD, Trackmix and E1 Zoom. In my opinion this is a gearing issue and cannot be solved through fw upgrades. They need to go to the design board and see how to improve the gearing mechanism. Being honest with customers builds instant credibility and helps create more trust. This is my philosophy.
Other issues with E1 Outdoor Pro which prevents me from recommending the product.Motion Detection of animals is not good. Detection of animals beyond 20ft i[censored] or miss.Motion Mark is a total failure in its current state. The blue motion mark boxes constantly blink around non moving things such as rocks, bags of dirt, shadows in bushes, plant pots, etc. Adding Non-Detection Zones do not fix the problem.Auto Tracking has a mind of its own. Even when disabled, the camera will start moving right/left for no apparent reason.
