Thank you. It's a good fix.

RE: Reolink App on Amazon store - Is it official?
The Amazon Fire tablets do have an Android based operating system but tailored to Amazon's requirements.
They do not have Google Play Store or Google Play Services on board so you are forced to obtain apps from Amazon's dedicated app store.
That is very easily fixed.
Just go to the 'How-To Geek' website and they have a simple step-by-step guide in plain English.
Put "How to Install the Google Play Store on an Amazon Fire" in the search box.
It takes about ten minutes to bish bash bosh.
RE: Notification Sound
Yes, indeed. You can create your own mp3 files and get properly creative!
You'll need to buy a licence for each @pomail address though, but five dollars, it won't break the bank.
*TIP: Don't have the custom mp3 that you upload to their website stored on a receiving device. It can cause Pushover to get confused.
RE: Notification Sound
Might try that.
In the meantime, I've bought a PUSHOVER licence for $5. (Just look for 'Pushover' in the app store). You're best going to their website first on a PC to set it up. Their push notifications contain text and a thumbnail image if you want. It's up to the user to what the notification includes. I can highly recommend it and it's worth every penny.
There's a delay of about ten seconds before it converts an email notification into a push notification but it still arrives earlier than an email alert, which sometimes never arrive at all!
Notification Sound in the FOREGROUND please?
This is so do-able if you want to.
I can't be the only user who uses a conveniently placed tablet to constantly stream video feed from a camera can I?
And while I might not be staring at it 24/7, I still want to be alerted when there is an event. Now, there's the problem. Because the tablet has the app running in the foreground, no push notification sound occurs.
I need to have another device with the app running in the background.
I know it's possible for apps to push their notifications when they are running in the foreground because there are other apps that do it. There are countless articles for app developers that explain how it can be achieved.
It's an easy option for you to include in the app.
Shouldn't users be given the option? All it takes is a simple tick box and a few lines of code.
You know you want to. Go on. Do it.
I have an old Motorola Moto G3 cell phone running Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) which I keep exclusively to alert me if a person is detected from one of my cameras. It's the most critically important of my cameras and I need to be able act quickly if an event occurs.
I need it to play a very loud intruder alert sound that I have stored in the phone's Notifications folder.
There is no option in the Android app to choose a custom sound. The app plays Reolink's default sound.
Is there a way to play a custom sound instead of your app's default sound?
Object Size: RLC-1210A
Just a quick question.
On my RLC-1210A, there is a feature which allows me to define the minimum size of an object that will trigger an event.
Does that feature apply to general Motion Detection or does it exclusively apply to Smart Detection for persons and vehicles?
