Reviews for REOLINK Outdoor Security Camera System – Wireless, Rechargeable Battery, 1080P Video, Night Vision, Motion Detection, 2-Way Talk, Waterproof, Support Cloud Storage | Argus 2+Solar Panel
People say Reolink is really similar to Ring.
Couldn't ask for anything better!
I have the solar panel attached to the fascia board on my house and it does an excellent job of keeping the camera charged up. I couldn't get the camera viewing angle I needed to monitor the windows on that same side of the house if I put the camera up there too, so I attached the camera to my fence (plenty of wire/cord between the panel and camera). The view from the fence is awesome in the daylight and night monitoring is good close to the camera because of some solar lights that light up about 3 feet out from the camera. Further away at night would be difficult to detect any features or specifics about a person, but I could at least see well enough to know whether someone was trying to peek in or break open the windows and I could call the police or shout at them to get away. Now, if I could convince the birds and squirrels to stay away from fence and the camera . . . it is, however, interesting viewing when they are looking right into the camera and appear to be showing off. I'm thinking about getting another for the other side of my house and one for the front that is outside the viewing area of my Ring doorbell. The back yard is covered by a camera connected to my monitored security system, so this great little camera is affordable enough to buy 2 more and give me viewing pretty much all around my home. Oh, and I'm a 66 year old woman who is often challenged using today's technology, but I had no problems setting this up and using it.
Got this camera after reading reviews! Oh boy what a find! This camera is fantastic! It puts ring to shame in so many ways, including the PRICE difference. Ring is so expensive and it sucks! The Reolink is so easy to use, the image is crystal clear and even at night you can see it great! From now one Reolink is my camera to go. I will never use ring again, it’s way overpriced for a crappy quality camera that a lot of folks thinks the world of it cuz they haven’t seen nor heard of Reolink. The camera setup is very easy, and even the Reolink app is very easy to use. Get this camera you’ll be a happy camper just like me! Oh and without breaking your bank account! Bye ring never again!
Better than Ring at first
So glad I bought this the picture quality is clear and nice. It works better than an Ring and less expensive! Update 11-10-2020 My camera that I bought in March has now stop sending me notifications when someone is at the door and now saying it's not close enough to my router to get a single just out the blue. It's been in the same place outside my front door since I bought it and it worked fine until now. I have reset the camera and my Wi-Fi several times and the notification button still saids operation fail. I don't plan on buying another I'll just have to cut my losses it was good while it lasted.
Works with alexa. no cables!
Pretty easy to set up. I have three different cameras, and this one works well for the price. I needed it in a spot where I have no electricity, and the (expensive!) Ring camera I had there was constantly in need of recharging. I threw the solar panel on a roof, installed this under an eave, and it can see a very wide view. I get an alert any time someone approaches my house. Can't beat it for money and ease of use.
Works well for me
We have 2 of these and they work well. Don't expect all the super smart features like a ring or nest. But as a camera, that can be remote monitored and works well with its app, it's quite good. We had some connection issues initially, but a little Googling had it solved quickly.
Great little camera
I have the Ring and Blink cameras. Now I have 2 of the reolink cameras. I like the software for the reolink the best, and the ability to connect to wifi is perhaps the simplest. I have solar panels charging both cameras. So far very happy.
Cameras work great and the 1080 resolution is superb. Hooked them up at an off the grid cottage with connected to a hot spot I bought from Sprint. The cellphone interface works between than the Ring door bell system i have at my house, it connects quicker and more reliable.
Reolink Wireless Cameral
This is a great outdoor camera at a great price. It even came with the solar panel. Arlo and Ring have nothing over on it except expensive fees. Video is better the Arlo without the long delay.
Great picture and battery life
Works great , clear image and with solar panel have never been under 100 percent battery life glad I bought over ring or arlo
I love this camera because I can save everything on my sd card unlike my ring camera which does not have this option. Excellent picture quality and the solar works excellent as well.
