Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
@user_788975327735961_788975327735961 Extend your warranty ... I don't have it. Just extend fir one camera and will disappear. And for the capture...I don't mind as long as it is their product. Its nice to know what is available. Whenever I open the application it goes to my main door camera and so I never see such ads.
The issue is not that I need to extend my warranty or not, but that there is content in the main view of an app that is used to control a paid product. That is the problem here. It is not acceptable for advertisements to be displayed (even when it is their product) for paid products/services. Every Reolink customer indirecly pays the development of the app, so this is certainly considered a paid service.To put this into perspective, this would be like driving a $180,000 Tesla that pesters the user about upgrading their vehicle. If you want to send users notices such as these, use the proper communications channel like email where at least I can create inbox rules to filter out this type of unwanted interruption. The interface of an App is NOT the correct medium to send such offers!
@joseph_1979 Here are the ads I am referring to. In the menu bar there is always some kind of promotion in the bottom that can't be permanently removed. According to this post, there is also an "extended warranty" ad that appears in the main home screen. I also happen to find ads in software to be annoying, just as with unwanted telemarketer calls, email spam, and junk mail. Reolink cannot be considered a serious tech company if they continue to display these types of nuisances to their users like this.
Never have I seen such lack of respect for a customer like this before. First they run ads in every corner of the app that every customer indirectly pays for when they buy Reolink products. And if you don't like that, they just relentlessly attack you for having that opinion and look for reasons to remove you. In this case the moderator was "threatened" by having his inappropriate conduct documented and reported to the company. Screenshotting public information is no different than video taping people in the public. Ironic isn't it?https://www.reddit.com/r/reolinkcam/comments/1agct55/comment/koix7he/?context=3
