Yes we definitely need to get 2-way audio working!I was expecting this would work
Concerning the notifications I have this working. I get different types of notifications depending on whether someone pressed the doorbell, a person was detected, it's night,... However I use Home Assistant for the notifications instead of the Reolink app.Here's my list of wishes:
And list of issues:
@joseph-chircop_497308027822318 I'm sorry but that is not correct.That new version (which I received as a beta) improves the situation a bit. However the difference with my wife's OnePlus brand smartphone is still nigth and day. She can hold the phone in front of her and watch the videostream on her smartphone while talking and it is loud and clear.On my Samsung I have to speak directly into the bottom microphone holding it 1 cm from my mouth and then it is audible (but not more than that).As I wrote above, the Reolink app should use the right microphone (the one at the top of the smartphone which is made for speakerphone mode, not the one at the bottom which is intended to be used when holding the phone against your ear).
@reolink-fiona excellent! I already bought the doorbell and have been waiting for the RLC-1224a to be available for pre-order.The only thing holding me back to do so is that I need to know whether it will support two way Audio when I integrate it with Synology surveillance station.For the doorbell this is not the case, it supports profile T and I've seen posts from you that it will be extended to support two way Audio which is great.If you could confirm that the RLC-1224a already works with two way Audio in Synology surveillance station or at least will work in the near future (e.g. this year) then I will immediately purchase this camera.Many thanks!
If you integrate the doorbell with home Assistant you have loads more Options in terms of when you get a notification, what sound it should make etc.Here's what I did:https://community.home-assistant.io/t/homeassistant-and-reolink-doorbell-poe/485857/69?u=quizzicalSo I only get relevant notifications (e.g. not that it detects my wife when she comes home) and the ones for person detected are silent.
I also have the problem that my Reolink doorbell thinks raindrops = a person. I've lowered the sensitivity, hope that helps.
I would also be very interested in solving this. There is indeed a delay feature for 'person detection' but that one is not falsely triggered by day/night mode.It is the motion detection feature that is falsely triggered.
Do you use a Samsung smartphone?The android app has a major problem on Samsung smartphones. On Samsung smartphones it uses the microphone at the bottom (used to speak when holding the phone to the ear) and not the microphone at the top of the smartphone (used when talking in “speaker mode”).If you contact Reolink they will send you a newer version of the app which helps a bit with the problem because you can set the audio volume of the built-in speaker.Would still be far better if it uses the right microphone because I still have to hold my mouth at 1 cm distance from the smartphone so I can’t really watch the screen and talk at the same time.So please do insist that they use the right microphone when you contact Reolink.
