Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
When I am at home on my Wifi and try to pull up any of the various Wifi cameras I have located around my house, I often get connection failed and have to try several times to get it to connect. Once I get it to connect, it stays connected and I can view it without issue and even access playback and settings. If I turn off Wifi and use cell signal, it will connect almost immediately and never have problems. I am connecting using the UID in the phone app and desktop app. I read that if you are using the UID for connection purposes, you don't need to do any port forwarding as it uses a random port, but I feel as though there must be some sort of network interference causing this. Also, just to be clear, all the my network devices, Wifi or otherwise, all run on the same subnet and same IP octet (cl[censored] C).
@mlodge87_607028518432873 And if you use the PC on your home WiFi, you have the same issue? Which cameras you have installed? Did you try to switch off mobile data and connect to the home WiFi? Did you try to connect with fluent rather than clear mode? Do you have the latest version of the client on the smartphone? Do your cameras have the latest firmware?
@joseph_1979 Using the desktop app on PC doesn't have any problem connecting to the cameras. I can close the desktop app and open it back up and they all show up immediately. The only issue I experience with trying to pull up cameras is from the phone app (iOS). If I flip off Wifi and connect with cellular, I can turn Wifi back on and it's works as expected. It's the initial connection that struggles when on Wifi. I can watch the FPS indicator ramp up and down while it tries to connect and usually tell when it's going to be successful when the FPS continues to increase and not drop.The cameras I have installed are: ReoLink Duo 2, RLC510WA, and Argus PT Ultra. I just tried switching off mobile data and connecting through Wifi and it took me 4 attempts before it connected. I'm not sure how to connect in a particular mode. I have the latest client on my phone (iOS). Cameras are all on the latest firmware.
