Anyone with experience on these? I see it can upload via FTP, can it do SMB? I'd like to get something that can dump video to my file server, get away from these scam cloud hosting services.

In looking at specs for some of these cameras I am seeing "Network Protocol" - HTTPS, SSL, TCP/IP, UDP, UPNP, RTSP, SMTP, NTP, DHCP, DNS, DDNS, FTP, ONVIF, P2P.

Yeah, I have had them for a year now (last black friday). I'll get my post from another sd that was posted a month ago or so and add it here.

As a brief though, I am using a 4 camera system with 3 being the rlc-410s (upgraded a couple to 32 gb cards). I have them storing to a 10 tb purple drive on my hp microserver running nas4free. I also setup one at my gf and place a pi there running a ftp server with a 1 tb external wd hdd. (it was a bit of pain to get the folder location to work correctly, I believe the problem was reolink was using the alias to the home directory and I had the drive mounted under media devices... something like that)

Here's the post i made to the earlier sd.

https://slickdeals.net/f/10554588-4mp-hd-fixed-lens-poe-bullet-ip-security-camera-with-good-night-vision-motion-detection-remote-access-plug-and-play-64-99?p=105009436#post105009436

I checked my emails from customer service when I was having the ftp issue and I was storing the files from the cameras here: /media/user/Bkup_1tb/REOLink/camera/poe2
but for some reason the files are being saved to /home/user/Bkup_1tb/REOLink/camera/poe2

It turns out the camera software was prepending the /home/user directory to the location. So I had to the mount the hdd manually to the /mnt directory to get it to work.

Like the idea of wire free but never heard of these before. Any one have an idea or say whether these are better than Lorex Rechargeable Security Cameras and Ring Spotlights

Thanks for the input! Also been looking at the Hikvision units which seem to support SMB, but also seem to have complaints about the interface and lack of instructions.

No problem. It seems like to get the less mainstream methods of storing video from the cameras (vendor servers/nvr vs ftp/samba) there's always a bit of effort to put in. But more than likely there's a site or forum where someone has done it before.

Reolink Argus doesn't seem to be ONVIF capable. This means we're totally dependent on their cloud service for this thing to work, correct? Useless without internet service?

Hi Lad1701,

It seems those are for their other wired cameras. I didn't think to before, but just now searched for "reolink argus rtsp" and found another confirmation in this review:

https://www.vueville.com/home-sec...ty-camera/

Netgear is coming out with a battery powered ONVIF compatible camera in a few days. It looks like the Arlo Pro and costs like it too.

Hi Lad1701,

Very good to see advances.

Lots of movement in the consumer wire free products...

Though, be cautious with Press announcements - they often have more hope than engineering reliability. Once a new product comes out, I like to give it a few mounts out in the field and see what the reviews are like.
