System seems ok for home use, but i found your video while looking for reolink nightvision footage and honestly it doesn't look very good in the night shots, lots of motion blur and very hard to get a good qualily low-light shot of a criminal
Comment from : John Adamczyk

This is a great video btw how did you secure the camera under the vinyl soffit?

Interesting. My current ADT Pulse system (wireless) has no real security. The camera system is being spoofed daily and overtly jammed several times a year. Was even spoofed-jammed in the presence of the ADT tech, who had no comment beyond "I've never seen this happen during the 6 years I've been with ADT". He promptly phoned his support center, system was rebooted remotely and tech departed, stating 'he had another appointment' - nothing has changed and I have not quite 2 years left on my contract. Have about $2k tied up in my present system and 'true security' isn't being provided.

You'll likely be clearing spider webs daily, at least around here. The faint IR glow and slight warmth of the camera attracts bugs which attracts web-building spiders. At night the IR brightly illuminates the webs washing out the image and setting of motion detection in the slightest breeze. Haven't really found a good solution and don't want to spray bug poison over entryways etc.

How do these camera do in Canadian winter? I live in Edmonton.

Hello, if we have audio PoE camera, and we put an HDMI cable, do we have audio via the HDMI cable?
Comment from : FPS BELGIUM

Great video but the music was distracting while you were explaining things.
Comment from : ATL WOLF

with the camera setting being 24/7 can you still zone a specific area on one of the cameras to get alerts from that specific dedicated camera?
Comment from : lawman722

Excellent review. I've just purchased a handful of Reolink POE cameras. Will power them via a POE Router. Can the NVR be attached seperately on the home network and still detect the Cameras operating that are on the network then import them?
Comment from : Got_nuffin_on_me

with the constant 24/7 recording are you still able to create a zone and receive a alert if motion is detected? say for example you ant to zone a pathway to a persons front entrance or driveway? thank you in advance....

it is not a good idea to go wireless in anything security-related. no, wired is the way to go. wireless has too may issues.
Comment from : Harry M

All these security camera videos on YouTube and not one person has there nvr in a secure location, burgler steals nvr you have 0 footage...

Need to add, there is "no phone support" with issues you might have.. Only online support and it takes 1-2 days for answers.. The dome cameras have junk blue plastic retainers with small screws that secure the camera in housing.. The pop out very easy and get lost..The camera ball rests on internal tabs and make it hard to adjust due to the camera wire hitting the tabs. Make sure you mount the camera with the internal tabs in mind.. If you dont, you will not be able to move the ball in the direction you want.. For some reason the cameras would not operate with a 100ft cat5e lines.. They cameras would go out after a couple of minutes.. Not sure if was the NVR or the cameras, the system was returned after 3 days.

I just want to verify what you said in minute: 4:01 that you can record with the client software in PC fully with all the settings [Full recording. Motion detection recording only and 24/7 Schedule ]. tanks

Agreed Riolink is good stuff. I bought one cam to check it out. Very happy. Bought another. I will buy the DVR next and record 24/7. Seems robust and pretty stable. Love the software phone and Desk top.

I have a similar very good POE system by Hikvision.....I started with 4 dome cams but be aware that although great in daylight there are problems at night. If the domes get any water droplets on them or the little bits of deposits from dried droplets it can play havoc with reflections from the internal IR emiters....try looking at an image in pitch black in a rain storm with the IR emitters on....its like big blobs of blurring making the picture of no use.

For this reason I swapped one of them for a 'pignose' type where the IR emiter is located away to one side of the lens so its great in the above conditions with no internal reflections off the domes.

On the other cams I have turned off the inbuilt IR emiters and use a seperate IR emiter mounted away from the cam....this is a great work around as you can get some pretty powerful IR emiters off Ebay etc for pretty cheap prices...it switches on when the light drops low just like the one in the cam and has a much greater range right across the street and even in rain is a perfect picture

I am lucky as I live in a bungalow (UK single story house) so its easy to clean the domes just using a step ladder but unless vandal proofness and no need for night use are your primary goals , knowing what I know now I would go with bullet or pignose type cams.....I would only consider dome cams for indoor or daylight use only.

Your review is fantastic. You speak clearly and concisely, hit every relevant point and I enjoyed watching. It is probably because of you that I'm going to purchase this setup. If they do any type of affiliate link please point me in the right direction so I can show a small bit of gratitude. I have already subscribed

I have 3 RLC-410 bullet cameras, and I use Blue Iris software to monitor those 3 plus several other cameras. The videos/snapshots are recorded to my desktop PC, and I usually move those files to a large storage drive every day or two. My cameras have already solved one crime that one of our neighbors ran into and destroyed another neighbor's mailbox and kept going. You could hear the sound of the crash and watch the mailbox go sailing across the yard. I plan to replace my other cameras with Reolink cameras as they provide excellent videos. I use POE, and have old routers that I converted to access points with injectors to power the cameras using a long ethernet cable. I use a Netgear EX2700 wifi extender to power the access point routers, so that I can connect multiple ethernet cables to the old router, and then to the multi-port injector, and then just the ethernet cable from the injector to the camera. Sweet. It's just another way to do this.

I own this system too. I agree with everything you said in the video. My only big concern is the Noisy NVR. I don't live in a big house. I can hear the cooling fan noise from my bedroom during night time. I set up the NVR in the living room. I hope the company will provide solution.
Comment from : Thomas Wai Pun

Seems like a nice setup but I got hooked on the Lorex 4K after I seen my friend's. It has the best color and clarity of any home camera system I have ever seen.

@3:38-camera 2 makes your grass look like shag carpet. Why is that?

I love ReoLink, I just wish they were like most other companies that make different lens size cameras.
Comment from : Nick Leffler

Nikolay Khrustalev
I have 2 questions: how to you run the cameras on your TV? Any dedicated surveillance app? And second question: what is the AOMWAY device shown at the end of the video? Thanks.
Comment from : Nikolay Khrustalev

Great review and I am using Logitech and love them. I do however want your system for outdoor and Logitech for back yard or inside the house.
Comment from : ImConfusedTwo

The camera is the easy part. Running wires is the nightmare which you didn't mention.

I have a Reolink security camera installed at my driveway, but i can't find a way to stream the live video to my smart tv. How did you do this?

You don't mention anything about other multi-window options. You show how it displays 4 cameras at once in a quadrant layout. Does it have other layouts for 6, 8, etc. cameras?
Comment from : Page Nix

Ethan Ludteke
At 1:07 looking at camera 4, how did you get that cam 4 to be in color at night time using the Reolink nvr progam? Was that option implemented with an update recently?

Do you know if the audio works well??
Comment from : Max Simms

I have the same system 8 port nvr, 4 bullet cams and 3 indoor wifi pan tilt. I love them. I just bought a bullet cam with optical zoom but have yet to install it. Reolink is good stuff for PoE

Does this system use a lot of bandwidth? What does my internet speed need to be? Right now I have 30mps and streaming IPTV.

Great review, presentation, and set up. Very professional. Keep up the good work.

how did you like the cat 5 cables that came with the system. I read a review on amazon that cat 6 improves the quality of the image and can stream more data at a faster rate. also read cat 5 cables are kind of obsolete these days.I'm not so tech savvy so was just wondering if and upgraded cat 6 would be worth it and would they improve these cameras production. just purchased the same reolink system from amazon

Just ordered 3 dome cameras and the same NVR also. I love this setup. After seeing your video im even more excited to hook them up. Your not joking. Running the wires is not for everyone.
Comment from : Bmorethenyouraveragenigro Queenz

So, I'm looking at you video footage and although objects that are not moving are clear, moving things are not. Your UPS driver is completely unrecognizable.

Great Review!!!!ย  Would you be my dad?
Comment from : fsfpridewar

Excellent review, this system looks just about right for me. It's depressing to see so many companies trying to sell you monthly space on their expensive "cloud". Reolink seems to be headed the opposite way. Good on them! I might just finally buy a set.
Comment from : Crivo152

Let me stop you right there.... this system is outdated and a COMPLETE pain in the ass to install, and not practical in 2018 considering all the other options out there. Not worth the hassle for one second to run those stupid cables and crap all through your house. WAAAAY better options than this system out there. And quite frankly Ben, i think you know that. But whatever right, take the money and move on. I look forward to the next product review. Lets Live AuthenTech

lol installation is not for the faint of heart... imagine being in attics in Florida ever day for 10 yrs installing coaxial cat5 and everything in between all day. all the insulation in my lungs... ugh. great review as i have been using swan for the past ten yrs or so and time to upgrade. and as coincidental as this video coming out today i just uploaded my security system catching a female thief running through my yard ditching her lack of a haul after breaking into vehicles in the neighborhood. so all i can say is you never know and a security system is a nice reassurance that your home is being watched. and i have mine set to record 24/7 as well. peace.

Thank you for doing a review with regards to reolink cctv system. I have been planning to buy their set package of 8 410s plus dvr at aliexpress but doubtful because I cant seem to find a decent review if its legit or not. Thanks again and happy holidays.
