Great test as always. I like the Camera. Just a shame they do not give it the starlight feature, as I get excellent night views from my Argus PT. The lack of two-way-sound is also a little disappointing. On the plus side, the speed of the preset changes is amazing, as is the picture quality. Thanks, LiveHackster.

What's the best wifi wired doorbell without subscription? Thank you in advance

Nicks Corsair S1 Tips says:

the missing audio is a deal breaker for me. I find that with all Reolink products that there isn't the fully featured ultimate camera out there.


Reolink…. PLEASE ADD a dark mode to the app!!!! The white background is blinding in the middle of the night when checking notices.

Blake E says:

Nice review, but you really need a specific use I feel for a camera like that. For what it's worth Ring's POE outdoor camera is one of my favorites. Not cheep, but does well recording audio and the viewing angle is so wide, it can pretty much cover my whole back yard. Not good for license plate reading though with that wide viewing angle.

Can you do a review on deep sentinel camera?

Bill P says:

I think because of you, I picked up the E1Pro, it couldn't stay connected to wifi. All of my other cameras all over the property are working fine. This one was within 10' of the router for testing. Their support appeared to be a robot, just asking you the same questions over and over. In the end, I had demand a RMA & I had to pay to return it. I appreciate your reviews, but that one camera and their support were pathetic.

out of stock and not on black Friday sale. there was a W or wireless version too I got 2 years ago even cheaper than sales price now …. from Amazon for 225€


That's one bad ass cam. I will be switching to Reolink in the future from my crappy 4k swann set up.
I dislike reolinks software but hardware looks good.

Bulldog FIT says:

Another thorough video. Question. What security cameras are out there where WiFi is not needed and will still work with power outages? Ones that are homeowner friendly and a security company is not necessary for install. Thank you.

Ron H says:

How is your reolink Argus echo holding up? Would you suggest it to use since the Wyze outdoor cam keeps getting delayed? I need something that doesn’t need a power outlet so the solar panel would suffice

Ali Nawaz says:

One question can this camera can be used other brand dvr or it has to be same brand camera and dvr?
