Product Roadmap: What's Coming Next
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
This is something which has probably been suggested before, but it is something that should be very easy to implement.I have an E1 Pro and when the camera switches between day/night modes this falsely triggers a motion detection event.The firmware should be able to prevent this by temporarily disabling motion detection events just before the camera tranistions between day/night modes and switching it back on a few seconds later.This should be a feature which can be enabled/disabled from the client applications.
I recently acquired a Reolink E1 Pro camera.I've only tested it with the Android app, but so far I'm fairly impressed with the camera and the features.However, one feature which I have not found in the app is an ability to put the camera into a 'sleep' or 'privacy' mode. What I mean by this is a way to effectively turn the camera off from the app so that it no longer captures video in live view, records, sends notifications, etc.Does such a feature exist? If so, how do I go about accessing it?The reason for wanting this feature in my case is that when I'm at home, I don't necessarily want the camera in operation for privacy reasons. I only want to enable the camera when I'm away and, at the moment, the only way I can see to do this is to physically unplug or switch off the camera. It would be much more convenient to be able to do this from the app!This feature would tie in nicely with the 'scene' modes so that all cameras could be put into a 'sleep' or 'privacy' mode with a single tap.If this feature is not available, can this be pa*sed onto the development team for consideration?Thanks
I've been using a number of Reolink E1 Pro cameras for a couple of weeks, here are some of the pros and cons from my experience.Pros:- Nice looking camera; neat, compact and is easily hidden.- Easy to configure and use using the mobile app.- Good value for money in terms of the specifications of the hardware, i.e. 4MP sensor, 2x2MIMO, Dual-band Wi-Fi support. The hardware and specifications are really the best thing about this camera.- Can be accessed on the local network via the app or PC software without the need to access the P2P network. This is a huge plus for those that are security conscious.Cons:- Motion detection is very basic and will use pixel changes between frames to detect motion. This will result in a lot of false notifications, e.g. a moth flying in front of the camera will trigger it.- No privacy feature to deactivate, hide or obscure the camera lens for peace of mind.- It uses a narrow barrel connector power cord instead of a more standard micro-USB power cable.- No wired LAN connectivity - I would have preferred to have this rather than the 5GHz Wi-Fi support.Overall I feel that this is a great camera hardware-wise, but it's let down by the current firmware and/or software support.The camera really needs to have human detection / smart AI as an option over and above basic pixel change motion detection. Even the automatic switching on/off of the IR LEDs will trigger a motion detection event; this should just not happen.Hopefully these issues will be addressed as the firmware and software matures, but for now I've decided to return the E1 Pro's that I purchased.
This is a great idea. I have looked into the various video doorbells currently available and none of them tick the boxes. Most of them either only support cloud storage, or record only to a local SD card.In my opinion, there is currently a gap in the market to release a video doorbell which supports Wi-Fi, recording to on-board SD storage and integration with a NVR with ONVIF and RTSP support.It would be a great addition to Reolink's product line.
