Product Roadmap: What's Coming Next
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
@reolink-lorenz Thanks Lorenz, I had a vague notion that I might take-advantage of the NVR's extra PoE ports, since I don't have any other PoE switches at this time. I guess not.
I installed 8.10.4 to my Windows 7 Pro and all manner of problems starting with multicam view and Playback date popups not working.Finally found 8.8.5 here:https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012466173-All-Reolink-Client-Versions/and am going to uninstall and reinstall 8.8.5 which AFAICT was working perfectly.Reolink needs to make older versions available more easily, not to mention to do a better job of testing new releases.
So disappointed no one is interested in this.The cam I mentioned with a "loose connector" appears instead to be flaky and I'm having a hard time troubleshooting it. It certainly doesn't help that every time the NVR loses contact with it, all its settings are gone and I have to <try to> get all of them back to where they belong "by hand".
This is such a basic need, I can't fathom why this wasn't built-in to the software from Day 1 of product release.SKIP TO NEXT RECORDING |>SKIP TO PREVIOUS RECORDING <|
Umm, a detailed description of your needs would be a good place to start. Where you want to put it, what you want to see/accomplish with it, etc.
@user_747401694544069_747401694544069 My E1 Outdoor "stays put" just fine. To my knowledge only Auto Tracking would do that, so make sure it's off. I never have tried PTZ mode but that's another place to look.
I have an RLN8-410 NVR system with mostly RLC-810A PoE cameras but one W--Fi. I have had a few problems over the past few months, once where a camera lens was cracked (a tree branch probably) and took-on water and failed, and recently one where the Ethernet connector became loose and lost contact. Each time I was able to repair, but each time too the NVR "lost track" of the cams' settings and I had to re-do everything from scratch! And yes, there was a lot to do in each case and it takes a while to get them all where I want them again.If there is a way to export NVR and Camera settings anywhere, I surely do not see it. I do see an "Export" b**ton on the Wi-Fi camera BUT NO 'RESTORE'.This is just mind-boggling to me. Please someone tell me that their is a way to Export NVR and individual Cam settings and then to Import them again after (in my case) the camera is restored to operation, or in the case of an NVR HDD failure, to get-back all the proper settings for it.
@joseph_1979 12Mbps uplink is "rather low"??? Really??? Dunno where you are, but you are wrong. At my other house it's maybe 5 up and my Skybell works quite well.I guess the Reolink doorbell is only suitable for city dwellers with fiber or some such.
Oh my, thanks everyone for the responses. As I said I miss some of my Skybell b**ton presses, but at least the devices always make a recording that is (eventually) available to me. I suspect that a doorbell press on the Skybell is just too "busy" for it in that it needs to start recording, which means I think sending upstream to the cloud, and at the same time send the keypress probably to Skybell and then down to my phone for the Alert I then get. If I ask it to show me live video, it often times cannot, and I think it may be because it is still uploading video at the same time.At any rate since my Skybell uses Wi-Fi, I had hoped that the PoETHERNET Reolink would have a huge speed advantage over it.Maybe the product can be improved with firmware updates but I will hold-off on purchasing for now.
I am thinking to replace a Skybell (Wi-Fi) with the Reolink POE doorbell and connecting it to my NVR, but it requires a bit of work to run the ethernet cable, so I hafta ask: Is the Reolink responsive/fast? My complaint about my Skybells (one at each of two houses) is that while the notices of a b**ton-press are mostly instant, the connection process takes long enough that I miss some of the people that are trying to contact me. ISP not the issue I think at 370Mpbs down and 12Mbps up. Do the ethernet Reolinks respond "instantly"?
My subject PoE NVR has just five ports occupied, one by the original Duo, and four with RLC-810A PoE cams. I've also connected via WiFi an E1 Outdoor cam, thus consuming a total of 7 channels for recording and playback.
Thanks for any feedback.
