Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
It is ONLY on my home network that connection and playback works very well. I can be on cell data or a really good wifi away from home and it is [censored]. I have had other brands and they connect remotely just fine. I downloaded Swann Link (which is like a clone of Reolink Client) and it doesn't work well either. It works great with Swann cameras though. Hmmm..?But the question remains unanswered, unanswered, unanswered! WHEN WILL THEY OR WILL THE EVER FIX THIS PROBLEM? How many years has this been going on? They are selling a product based on remote viewing capability to monitor their property, but it doesn't really work. They take the money and don't deliver in that respect.
Believe it. I don't think they will ever fix it. I love the cameras but they will not fix this problem. I have had my cameras for a couple of years, been through several firmware/software upgrades.The first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem.
I am curious if Reolink is ever going to take responsibility and fix the remote viewing Reolink Client Software? I've had my cameras for a couple of years and been through several firmware and software updgrades. Whenever I have inquired about it, support merely wants me to do another firmware upgrade.Everyone has to know that it will hardly connect over the internet. Works fine on your home network but not away from home. I'd say it takes about 5 attempts to get it to connect for live viewing and almost impossible to play back recorded clips.
The Reolink instructions are poor regarding the waterproof connection covers. How to install the waterproof coverThe instructions in the link above do not even show rubber grommet that seals around the cable or the O-ring. You just have to guess at which direction to install the grommet and in which connection to put the the O-ring. Also would be nice if you could order replacement part for them if you lost some of the parts (like I did). I also was lacking one O-ring when I received my cameras.
