How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
"40*40*40(mm), DC12V, Power:0.43W"shouldn't this be 40x40x10 mm? I've also noticed disappointingly loud fan noise after upgrading from a 8ch to a 16ch system, and I'm looking at options for reducing the fan noise.I'm actually wondering whether the RLN16-410 can be run with the fan disconnected? The reason I'm wondering is because I was previously running a RLN8-410, which had 8 cameras connected and was recording 24/7 to the internal HDD and it had no issues with overheating. The RLN16-410 has the same logic board layout, I'm only recording to 8 cameras, and I only have one internal HDD. As such, the setup is essentially the same as the 8ch setup and yet the 16ch setup has a noisey little fan. Does anybody know of any mods for reducing the fan noise? I'm not keen to run the NVR with the cover removed (although that does actually reduce the noise as the cover seems to amplify the fan noise). The screws holding the fan are tight. I'm tempted to purchase a Noctua 40x40x10mm fan to see how that goes, but I'm not real impressed with having to spend an another $40 for a better quality fan for what was already a AUD$1300 security system.
I recently purchased a Reolink PoE doorbell and am very impressed, but I'd also like to be able to purchase a second chime so that I can hear the doorbell in other regions of my house. Reolink, get on it, please! I need a second chime in an Australian version!
@joseph_1979 feature request submitted! I don't see why this wouldn't be possible to introduce via a firmware update for any cameras/systems that already support person/vehicle/pet detection.
Hi All,I run a RLK16-820D8-A system, which includes the RLN16-410 NVR and RLC-820A cameras, which have person/vehicle/pet detection. The other day I had the police knock on my door to query me as to whether my cameras have caught footage of a neighbour's house being broken into a couple of nights earlier. At that point, I set out to determine whether my cameras had indeed captured the event, but, unfortunately, this turned out to be quite arduous as I soon discovered that I had to manually watch through hours of footage. This is because person and vehicle detection events are only logged for detections that occur within my established detection zones. That is, I have the detection zones setup so that I only receive push notifications when someone ventures past a certain point onto my property, as I don't want a notification every time someone simply walks along the footpath outside my house or a car drives along the street. Whilst this works great, it also means that I cannot simply go into playback (via the app) and then select person or vehicle detections, and then see clips of every person or car that walked along the footpath or drove down the street, as the footpath and street are outside my detection zones. My point is that it would be great if there were separate settings for a 'detection zone' (entire camera field of view) and a 'notification zone'. I'd like my cameras to detect every person, vehicle or pet within the camera’s entire field of view (i.e. anyone that walks past my house and every car that drives down the street), and I’d like to be able to filter to show these detections during playback, but I only want to be notified when a person or vehicle ventures into a certain region, a “notification zone”. So, when it comes to playback, I'd like to be able to filter to show:(i) person / vehicle / pet detections within the entire field of view - this would allow me to filter to see every detection event for every person, vehicle, or pet that came into the camera’s field of view, regardless of whether they were on my property or across the road, but I would not receive push notifications for any of these detections. (ii) person / vehicle / pet detections within the 'notification zone' – this would allow me to filter to see detection events for every person/vehicle/pet that ventured onto my property within the designated zones of interest that I had masked/established within the field of view (i.e. my front porch or driveway), and I would receive a push notification based upon my notification settings. I think having person/vehicle/pet detection for the entire field of view as well as for the detection/notification zone would greatly improve the functionality of the camera systems, especially when it comes to finding footage of events that did not occur within established detection zones.
I run an RLK16-820D-A system, which has RLC-820A cameras. These are great cameras with 4K res, dome shape, person/vehicle detection and infrared, but the missing features are two-way audio, a security spotlight and a siren. I'm aware of the RLC-824A, which has 4K res, two-way audio and spotlights, but my understanding is that these cameras with colour night vision rely on the spotlights being constantly on; the webpage listing for these cams even states "for ideal night vision, please keep the spotlights on as supplemmentary lighting". However, I certainly don't want my front door, back door and outdoor living areas having constant LEDs shining over them as soon as it gets dark. So my request is a PoE camera with the following features: -dome-4K (or greater)-infrared for regular night vision recording-motion activated spotlights for intrusion deterrent (and potentially for colour night vision recording?) during a person detection event that occurs during a scheduled period (i.e if someone approaches one of my doors between 10pm - 7am)-two-way audio through the phone app-a siren that can be configured to be automatically activated upon person detection, or manually activated by the app. The presence of an outdoor siren is actually something that my home insurance provider recently queried me on during my policy renewal, and despite having Reolink's RLK16-820D-A system, insurance providers don't regard my house having a security system as it doesn't have an outdoor siren as a deterrent.
I'm referring to the blue box that is circled in red in the attached image. I was playing back videos the Reolink app on my iPad when I first noticed that the blue highlight box sometimes doesn't appear when playing videos. But upon playing back videos again just now I'm unable to replicate the issue on either my iPad or iPhone. So beats me, maybe the app was just glitching on my iPad. I'll keep an eye out for whether I see it happening again. IMG_1246.jpg
Thanks. I had no idea that 'scene mode' was hidden there in the app. I'll give it a go.
I have a RLN16-410, and cameras are RLC-820A and D800.
Something that annoys me is the spate of notifications I receive when there's something I need to do outside my house, as I usually have my phone in my pocket and it's going nuts from constant detection events, or my partner is getting notifications because I'm outside doing something. To avoid this, I currently go into the app and disable push notifications, which turns off notifications for all cameras. Whilst this isn't difficult, I often forget to turn notifications back on. As such, it would be good to have the option to temporarily 'pause' notifications for a defined period, after which notifications auto resume. After clicking pause, an option could be presented to select from defined periods, such 10 min, 30 min, 60 min, 2 h, 6 h, 12 h. Then you could just choose the appropriate option based on how long you expect to need notifications paused.
+1 to this. I'm running a RLK16-820D8-A, which is the newest system with AI, and when the cameras switch from night to day mode it triggers a motion detection event. That's absolutely ridiculous. It doesn't happen as my cameras switch from day to night mode though, only as they go from night to day. Surely motion detection can be momentarily disabled as the switch occurs. Fortunately, the RLK16-820D8-A allows me to filter notifications to only person detections, otherwise I'd still be getting notifications for every camera, every day, as they go from night to day mode.
+1 to this.
