Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Hello, my model is Reolink C1 pro.When I connect camera via wifi (house, office, another country) works perfect.But when I want to connect via 3G/4G connection failed, Cant connect.Please help
I get the same thing on my C1 Pro and RLC-411WS (iPhone X, 100mb up and down ATT fiber internet).It usually fails many (5-20) times before connecting successfully.Sometimes I have to just close the app and open it again. Sometimes that works, sometimes not.This issue happens when I'm 3G/4G and LTE. It also sometimes happens when I'm on wifi that is different than the network the cameras are on.This really needs to be fixed. Very frustrating and I cannot recommend Reolink to my friends and family because of this issue.
Same problem here with C1 Pro.Doesn't work over LTE/3G, works perfectly fine over WiFi.My LTE connection is 4G+ with speeds around 50/30Mbps, so it's not a problem definitely.I've tried connection over LAN cable, as well as 5GHz. No luck.Actually it did work few times over LTE and it did work, it did connect, but most of the time when I actually need to check my camera it doesn't work @ReolinkSomething is wrong with that camera. Can you please send any hints how to resolve this issue?
I have the same problem.First of all, I find it strange I am not able to enter an IP address to connect to. Everything is configured throught the QR code on the camera. I also didn't open up a TCP port on my router so it seems the camera connects to a cloud service provided by ReoLink. Using the app, a connection is probably set up to the same cloud environment, which in turn makes it possible to connect to the camera. So it works as sort of a relay/proxy. Why this won't work on a cellular connection, I can't really explain at this point.
Same problem here with RLC-410WS.Doesn’t work over LTE(4G)/3G but it works perfectly over WiFi.
Have you tried port forwarding? Open up port 80, there's a really good guide here https://www.cctvcameraworld.com/port-forwarding-for-dvr-and-nvr/I'm on Sprint and after following this guide I'm able to view on LTE as long as my connection permits
Ok, so I've opened up port-forwarding for the media port (9000), directly from my router to the camera. This seems to work. The first connection attempt still fails, but now the second attempts seems to connect. I'm still not sure why, but it has improved connectivity a lot. Unfortunately I won't be able to purchase any more Reolink camera's now, since I can only forward the media port to 1 camera at a time. I'm not able to change the network or connection settings to connect multiple camera's at once. Shame...They are nice camera's...
hi Guys.I wrote the reolink support and got a solution.The solution is a new test firmware of the camera and a new app.Now access via 3G / 4G works without problems
Are you able to share the software of provide a link where it can be downloaded? Did they say anything about a release date for these updates?
I do not know if the links are still working ...Quote:For Android:We have made test firmwares and test Android App, in hopes of solving the issue for you. If it is of convenience and interest to you, we would love that you help us test:Step 1. Please upgrade the camera firmware with this test firmware:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/f3svgomnqv5fn8n/AACe9mfKbUvFY8-b-3SVOFzXa?dl=0How to do firmware upgrade: https://reolink.com/faq/upgrade-firmware-of-reolink-camera/ Download the Android App from here and install the App on your cellphone(You may need to delete the current App).https://www.dropbox.com/s/41c2xysna5qza1d/Android_StreamView_188.8.131.52.apk?dl=0 Step 2. Add the camera to the test version of Reolink App (above), and see if you can remotely connect to the camera (with your phone connected to 4G cellular network)?RISK WARNING: If the camera is upgraded to the test firmware, you have the risk of not being able to remotely connect to the camera on Reolink desktop software (test version to be released soon). So if you rely on Reolink desktop software, then do not do this test.If the new firmware is not working properly, please kindly download the current firmware from our webpage then rollback the firmware on the device.How to do firmware upgrade: https://reolink.com/faq/upgrade-firmware-of-reolink-camera/ Thank you in advance for your willingness to test for us. With your help, we will solve the problem in a quicker fashion.
Hi communities,Sorry for the trouble caused. We are coming close to a fix to this issue. We are in the process of new firmwares/App testing. If you'd like to help us beta test, you may get a quicker resolution of the issue. And we are really glad if you can drop us an Email at firstname.lastname@example.org and get the test firmware/App.Thanks again for you guys sharing your experiences here!
Thanks Bob. I contacted support and received the instructions for testing the beta firmware.I updated my C1 Pro to the new firmware.Success!Using the new firmware and test app, my iPhone X now connects quickly and consistently using 3G/4G/LTE.In addition, I am able to stream at much higher rates using 3G/4G/LTE than was previously possible.Notes for others about the beta firmware:1. It is not yet compatible with the desktop/PC client software.2. It breaks the 3G/4G/LTE connection in the current iPhone app (you must use the test app).I did not update my RLC-411WS because I was not willing to lose access with the PC client.I hope Reolink can quickly finish up testing and get this new firmware out of beta and working with the PC client.
Notes for others about the beta firmware:1. It is not yet compatible with the desktop/PC client software.
Correction: It is not yet compatible with the desktop/PC client software for REMOTE access (it works fine if the desktop and camera are on the same local network).
Hi thereI too am currently using the test firmware and I am very pleased to say that this is now working as it should - this was a real deal breaker for me, as I have not long purchased this off of Amazon and they were going back if this issue couldn't be resolved. Looking forward to this being officially released so I can connect my other C1 Pro - Thank you for the great support Reolink - much appreciated On another topic(s) I wonder if someone could clear up 3 things that is confusing the heck out of me?Push and email schedules?1. Can someone explain the difference and why I would want to have push notifications if email is another option? - surely by having email you will have a copy of the movement video file, push is just a notification telling you that movement has been detected - is this correct or am I way off?2. In the email option I ONLY want to receive email alerts when there is motion detected, yet there only seems to be an interval option for 30secs/1Min/5Min/10Min/30Min - therefore by setting one of these time options (I have no choice as it cannot be deactivated) I will receive and email and what ever duration I set (lets say 5) so every 5 minutes I receive an email filling up my in box unnecessarily, yet frustratingly there has been no movement detected!!3. OK, this question isn't confusing, but has anyone worked out how to use geoloction with their C1 Pro using IFTTT or similar? It would be amazing if after a few seconds of leaving the house my MD activated and email was triggered to ON (minus the issue above:)) and same in reverse when I get home. Any help on any of the 3 points above would appreciated, that manual hasn't really helped and I need to get these issues sorted for me to feel that i have really purchased an amazing camera!Thx in advance
Update: I installed the beta firmware on my RLC-411WS today and it fixed the connection and streaming issues just like the C1-Pro. And both cameras with the new firmware seem to also work fine with version 4.4.1 of the iPhone app (released a couple days ago).Thanks again to Reolink for working until they had a fix.
clarification ... the new firmware seems to be working fine with version 184.108.40.206
Hi,Sorry if this is a silly question but i have download the firmware which is a .pac file. What do i use to extract it on a Mac as tried 3 programs so far and none will do it.Thanks
There is no need to further extract it, Andy.
Hi, on instructions it statesAfter you downloaded the firmware from Reolink website, please use decompression software such as WinZIP or WinRAR to extract the firmware file to a folder;hence why i have been trying to find software, anyway i tried to upgrade today as shown and now i can not log in to either of my cameras! what do i do now?
Hi Andy,After updating the firmware, I found it was best to delete the existing camera from the mobile app and add it again like it was a new camera.Regards,Tom
After the success of the new firmware on the RLC-411WS and C1 Pro, I decided to buy a RLC-422W.After updating the firmware on the RLC-422W it can also connect and stream using 4G/LTE.
