I have bought a ton of Reolink products and most recently purchased a reolink NVR and reolink Argus camera. Both are great products. The Argus seems kind of like an Arlo (which I haven't used) but without the base station.
Quality is excellent and easy to setup.
Live view will eat through the batteries if used extended but otherwise you can expect months of use. Also, it has a PIR sensor so it doesn't rely on motion processing of the camera so that saves on batteries too.

I was sent this coupon by reolink to share.

Coupon code is slickdealscoupon and expires 10/3

Reolink Argus:

Uses the same battery as Arlo gen-1
Has 1080p resolution and better ID distance than both the Arlo and Arlo Pro
Has a Built-in Micro SD Socket in the camera unit - Arlo / Arlo Pro does not.

This is an example of the competition coming to the wire free product space.

[ update: FOV Diagonal: 130°; Horizontal: 110° - thus will need to adjust numbers for it - looks like a number of vendors are playing the game of listing the diagonal FOV and not horizontal FOV to confuse customers as the diagonal FOV is larger than the horizontal FOV - however that does decrease the ID distance calculated ]

ID spec distance and associated area max covered calculations ( 100ppf+ ):

This is the theoretical max based on raw pixels from the horizontal resolution and the FOV.
Actual real world results will be decreased due to the quality of the camera ( glass vs plastic lens, compression quality, sw/firmware,... ), installation view, as well as environmental conditions ( low light, haze, fog, glare off snow, water rain,.. ).

Practical meaning: Place your cameras in such a manner that any suspect / subject you wish to potentially ID is within this ID spec distance, as well as in a placement which will give you a high likelihood of obtaining a good facial image ( mount camera 8 feet or less high ).

So you have to unmount these to charge them? How do you replace the batteries?

The backing pops off to give you access to the batteries (like most devices with AA's). I got an Argus at launch and got through about 5 months on the included batteries. If you use the magnetic mounting base you can just pull it right off, so it's easy to get to. If it's near ground-level, you'll want to use the screw-on type mount (like point-and-shoot cameras use). Both mounts are included in the box. I had it mounted on the second story catching my driveway. Only recorded during bedtime. I think I mounted it too far away for the PIR to catch anything on the ground, so the majority of captured footage was from bugs flying by or light mist blowing in the breeze.

Just a few days ago I received an 8-pack of rechargeables (w/ charger) from ebay for like $20, and moved the camera to my porch to watch for delivered packages. So far the motion detection has been hit and miss with us leaving/arriving home. Seems to be a few seconds delay in capturing, so if you're quick to leave, it'll just record nothing. Also, allegedly, it records in 6-second clips only, so watch out for that.

I'm going to play a little more with the configuration to get the recording right, but overall I'm happy with it.

Yes. You can buy rechargeable and swap if you want.
One included mount is magnetic and makes removal easy but you might not want to use it where it could be stolen with that mount.

Just got an email for a 50% off code to use towards the accessories (either a skin or a 3-pack of magnet bases). Drops the price from $12.99 to $6.50.

Code: argusskins
