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 [censored]on 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)
@t-maciek_382830390239374 Thank you. For the MQTT support, I have told the product team about this to have further evaluation.
Our engineering is reviewing the feasibility of implementing this idea. Thank you sincerely for sharing your thoughts

Hi, Reolinkers!As security becomes increasingly important, high-resolution security cameras have become essential tools. At Reolink, we understand the significance of capturing every detail, which is why we offer cameras with higher resolutions, such as 12MP PoE, 4K WiFi, and 4K battery cameras. We are committed to constant innovation and pushing the boundaries of resolution, as we believe details matter for security and an exceptional user experience.What can a High-resolution camera do for you?Let's paint a picture. Have you ever encountered a situation where you need to review surveillance footage, only to find that when you attempt to digitally zoom in on a person's face or a vehicle's license plate to gather vital information, the image becomes an indistinguishable blur of pixels?However, this scenario could have played out differently if the cameras were equipped with high-resolution technology. High-resolution cameras can capture more details and information, ensuring that the image remains clear and sharp even when you digitally zoom in. Now, upgrade your security with Reolink's high-resolution cameras and experience ultimate clarity.Buy It Now: https://reolink.club/com1212AInvest in Reolink's high-resolution cameras and elevate your security to a new level. Because when it comes to your safety and peace of mind, details make all the difference.#ReolinkHighResolution
