Hi everyone, the webhook has been in our evaluation process now. But it may need some time to complete. Thank you for all your feedback. If there is any news, I will let you know.
Hi all,Thank you all for being so supportive of our doorbell camera. Your voices and thoughts are valuable to us. We have collected much feedback from you since the doorbell was released, and we have made improvements such as new features and changes in this firmware. Find out if there is one you want.Download the firmware via https://bit.ly/3K6BGc0.
1. Added new Google Home/Alexa support features!! - Hooray! More features are supported in the Google Home/Alexa. Play your doorbell in the smart home now!What supported: Google Home: Live view Wake up by voice(on schedule) Notification(on schedule): MD/Person/Visitor notification Alexa(Beta): Live view Two-way audio Wake up by voice Notification(on schedule): MD/Person/Visitor notification *On schedule means that the features will be available after the Cloud server update.2. ONVIF with two-way audio support using RTSP Many users ask for this and we have heard it. Try to use the two-way audio on third-party software with this new firmware. 3. Add Doorbell Button Sound: Does the doorbell ringing sound too loud when pressing the doorbell? Here is an option for you to mute. (App 4.37)4. Added Status LED setting under Light: you can turn off the doorbell’s status light at night. (App 4.37)5. Added the Iframe multiplier selection(GOP multiplier selection) The setting is to adapt to the settings of third-party software like Blue Iris. We suggest using the default setting. You can adjust the interframe space settings if the picture quality needs improvement.What is GOP? A GOP is a group of consecutive pictures. A GOP(Group of pictures) is the distance between two iframes, measured in the number of frames or the amount of time between iframes. For example, if an iframe is inserted every 1 second into a video at 30 frames, the GOP length is 30 frames or 1 second. How to set interframe space? So in our Client, interframe space sets the number of frames between two iframes. You can choose multiple frames for both clear and fluent modes. 1X means one multiple of the frame rate you set. 2X means two multiples of the frames. For example, if you set 25 FPS and 2X, the distance between two iframes will be 50 frames. 6. Modified frame rate feature Setting->Stream->Frame Rate We have modified the Auto frame rate mode feature to adapt to the complicated night environment. Auto now means the gradual frame rate drop, where the frame rate will be changed based on the brightness instead of a direct drop. This setting will guarantee the clarity of the video first. Constant means the fixed frame rate, which can guarantee the smoothness of the video first. 7. Added Black & White and Color switching Threshold in the advanced setting under Display. You will be able to adjust the range of CDS value.8. Work with IOT devices. (Configure via Reolink App only)

Hi all,We're thrilled to announce the successful installation of solar panels at two Indian village schools.Students now have access to clean, sustainable power for a better learning environment.The Gyan school had zero electricity access before the Reolink-sponsored project. Now the school is installing lights and fans in all of the classrooms. The Risiya school was dealing with daily power outages from the grid but they now have uninterrupted power on demand.Access to electricity means that schools can use electric lights and fans making the classrooms more comfortable and conducive to learning. The schools also now have the opportunity to use technological tools like computers and projectors, and access to the internet which can significantly improve the quality of education.The solar arrays also mean that the schools no longer have to worry about paying their power bills. The Gyan school didn't even have electricity because it couldn't afford a connection. At the Risiya school, the solar array will save on operating costs since they don't need to use power from the grid anymore. This can free up resources for other vital areas, such as educational materials, school maintenance, and teachers' salaries.Together, we're lighting up the future! #GoGreenWithReolink #Sustainability #GoSolar

@joseph_1979 NO plan in a short time. I will collect your suggestion and I will let you know when there is good news.
What is local storage? Local storage usually refers to anything that is “on-premise” like HDD, flash drive, SD card, local file server, or Network Attached Storage drive (NAS).With hands-off equipment as a storage backup, local storage can be a great data storage solution. You don’t need to access your files with an Internet.There are many advantages to having local storage.1. No need for an Internet connection2. Reliable and Accessible:You can control all of your data locally anytime without limitation.3. Offers far more options for customization4. Faster data transfer5. No hidden fees6. Secure and local managementThere are also some disadvantages:1. Physical space required2. Need IT management skills3. Susceptible to external damageIf you use the Reolink devices, the most common local storage options are NVR HDD and SD card.
Local management & Local detection:Using the NVR, you can manage your data locally and it is built-in local detection. Without the Internet and extra fee, you can also control your camera stored videos in your HDD, and receive notifications in your monitoring area.Flexible connection of different types of cameras for your videos storageMany users may not find that both PoE and WiFi wired cameras can connect to the NVR flexibly. You can control the data for most types of Reolink cameras.External HDD is AvailableYou can add the external HDD according to your needs. NVR HDD can record up to 291 days of 24/7 recording for 1 camera and 4096 bit-rate setting.FYI:Different models and hardware versions have different HDD capacity recommendations. You can find the capacity parameter here.If you would like to know how long can your NVR record, you can refer to this article.
SD card is a very convenient set-up of local storage.When choosing the SD card, it is also important to think of the endurance especially if you record 24/7. You can choose high endurance cards if you record 24/7. If the camera only records motion videos, 32GB would be ok.Advantages:(1) Cheaper than hard drive(2) Small and easy set-up(3) Record both continuous and alarm videos(4) Able to playback in the APP and Client(5) Time-lapse video can record on the SD card.(6) Work with the battery camerasTips:Capacity: Up to 256GB, but it may depend on your camera model.Requirements: FAT32 and Class 10 or later read and write speedWhat do you think of the local storage? Any thoughts or tips are welcome.#ReolinkLocalSecurity #LocalStorage #Reolinknvr
