Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Try adjusting the angle and direction it's facing, and you might get better coverage. Also, make sure there are no obstructions like trees or walls that could be blocking the sensor. That seemed to help me get better motion detection.
I totally get your excitement about new IoT devices. It can be a bit frustrating when companies keep us in the dark for so long, right? Regarding Reolink, making their cameras compatible with a popular third-party IoT ecosystem sounds like a smart move. More compatibility often means a broader user base.
Unfortunately, on the free plan, you can usually only have one camera without any extra charges. They tend to limit the number of devices you can use for free to encourage you to upgrade to a paid plan.
I totally agree, more POE doorbell options would be awesome. I've been eyeing the Reolink too, and it's great to hear your positive feedback. I also think 2-way audio would be a game-changer for these doorbells. Matter support could definitely make things more seamless.
What worked for me was making sure I had the correct Wi-Fi credentials entered during the setup, and also double-checking if the camera and access point were on the same network frequency (2.4GHz or 5GHz). Sometimes, that can be the problem.
I had the same issue. I solved it by installing a smart doorbell with customizable notifications. You can set it to send silent notifications to your phone, so you know when someone's at the door without waking up the whole neighborhood.
Preventing theft can be a real concern. For DIY protective covers, you can use things like security camera housings or custom-made enclosures. Mounting plates are a good idea too, they make it harder for thieves to snatch stuff. Just make sure everything's secure and visible.
I love how the Reolink system performs compared to Swann. The idea of it switching back to auto mode after a scheduled spotlight and having a perimeter line crossing alarm sounds awesome. It'd make the system even more user-friendly and secure.
As long as your NVR supports IP cameras, you should be good to go. Just make sure the camera is compatible with your NVR's protocol, and you might need to configure the camera settings in the NVR's interface. Also, keep in mind the wireless signal strength and camera placement for a reliable connection.
Yeah, you can totally use a PoE extender with 2 ports for both your front gate camera and the Reolink PoE video doorbell. Just make sure the extender supports the PoE standard your devices use (probably 802.3af or 802.3at).

Regarding the firmware update, it's weird that there's no matching version in the support center. Have you tried reaching out to their customer support directly? Sometimes, they can provide a solution or a custom firmware update that's not publicly available.
