I don't but I know Reolink and Amcrest are probably the two brands to look at in the budget range these days. Rather than a Foscam or D-Link for example. Using Amcrest myself but read good things about Reolink while I was doing my research so take that for what it's worth.

Hi ykameron,

Looked at the spec's - they seemed nice for this model and the 410s considering the price point. You would need a PoE switch or AC/DC adapter for these models. Reolink seems to be in the business of selling products directly to customers themselves. $65 for a 4MP metal case PoE camera is very competitive.

Reading a bunch of threads on ipcamtalk during my learning process and noticed a number of forum members have a negative view of Reolink due to employees of the company spamming the forum and often being a bit deceitful. Many on that forum prefer Dahua or Hikvision OEM products, and believe Reolink quality is below those options.

Reolink does seems to have a number of fans for their products. I wasn't certain of how to decide myself the value of Reolink when replacing my poor performing cameras.

If the specs are correct on these Reolink models you should see an ID distance in the 17-18 foot range during the day. ( range is determined by Horizontal Resolution and FOV - 80 degrees ) You can look at the numbers I have for other 4MP camera models in the list I have compiled here: https://slickdeals.net/f/10409612-lorex-dahua-oem-6x-4k-8mp-security-camera-system-w-8-port-poe-ip-nvr-2tb-hdd-kit-at-costco-b-m-ymmv-for-799-99

2560(H)x1440(V)
80 ° @4.0mm

There is a Qsee 4MP bullet cam which is close to that on there.

If you need a complete system you can compare the Reolink PoE line up with various PoE sets from Costco, including the 4K one in the post I mentioned.

In the end any decent PoE system should beat the numerous and rather pricey wireless and wire free options we see a lot here. ( imho reliability and quality of image count the most )

Hi Thirsty1258

With so many cameras you would want their PoE NVR and/or a windows PC with Blue Iris software as well as a PoE switch.

5*65 + $250 ( Reolink cheapest NVR for these cameras ) = $600 + wiring up time and materials for you house

Blue Iris will cost a bit more, however a lot of people really like it a lot once they've started to work with it.

Sweet! You're already got a leg up on this.

Hi Thirsty1258, Ykameron,

Thanks,

Happy to help out - I'm still learning and recall what a challenge it really is to get a better understanding of the options available.

Do take a look at the link on the 4K system - that is where I attempt to keep all the updated notes on ID distance, as well as other notes which I hope you and others will find helpful.

Suggest using that system as a comparison point to others. In the end I know each of us will have slightly different needs, certainly different budgets, as well as experience with IT systems - so I'm expecting various options from the Reolink listed here, to LaView systems from Newegg, as well as other systems to be potentially interesting to many people here.

I have a 4 reolink system. I'm using the rlc-410s cameras (sd card) outside and a c2 ptz inside. I use a netgear 8/4 smart managed poe switch and then push the video to an ftp server.

The resolution is great. I can clearly make out vehicles on the road about 25' away. It is great for storing footage and being able to reference it when needed later.

The app works well enough. You can setup everything on it, name/dns/mask/recording times. The playback is a little tedious and too many notifications make the push or email alerts useless. When an event occurs you just go back through the footage and find out what happened.

The desktop client works ok as well. You can setup all your camera, update firmware and save each configuration which is nice. It's weird in how it resizes its self and I can't figure out the zoom but it's not bad for free.

Installation was a little effort but not too bad. I used the flat 100' white Ethernet cables from amazon and staples. Unfortunately I don't have attic space so had to run them against the wall/ceiling. Poe is nice too keep the cables to a min!

I am using a wd purple 10 tb to back up continuosly and get about 23 days for 4 cameras. I use the motion detected save feature for the sd cards though. 16gb is only about 15 min for full resolution on continuous.

I bought them last Black Friday deal and for 4 mp around $70 ea can't complain at all. Support is ok through their Facebook messenger app, software leaves a little to be desired... overall though for the price I have a great little upgradable poe system for the house!

As a note I did remove the casing to see the inside guts and wasn't impressed with the board layout it looks a little diy Wink

if you want to upgrade the sd card you can but there is some silicon heatsink compound that you have to remove first. It keeps the heat sink connected to the aluminum housing so make sure to put it back. I didn't try 64gb but 32 works fine!

Thx man. Quick question. If I did without their NVR for right now and set up their 16gb internal for motion record only can I still view that footage remotely.

Also you said you have a 10 tb to backup so you are not using their NVR I assume and how did you get the footage from the camera to the 10tb drive

Thanks !

Of course you can view remotely. They have ddns process on the camera itself. I use no-ip and added the host name for outside the network access.

Like I said the 16gb sd card (rlc-410s not rlc-410) holds about 15 min continuous footage on clear (2560x1440) anywhere from a day to a week depending on the number of motion activated events.

To get the footage from the camera to the server is easy too. There is an ftp process on the camera as well and you just have to set up one on your server to make it work!

On an added note I setup an rpi3 with ssh (remote access) and ftp for camera storage at another location. I used an 1tb wd external hdd and the camera stores footage to it now and I can ssh from outside the network to check the backed up storage!

Reolink talks about their cameras being a good diy solution and I have to agree for the most part. They just came out with a 5mp camera too. I'll prob wait till those go on sale in a year or so but that should get you another couple feet of face ID right!?
