Reolink streaming camera
« on: June 30, 2024, 09:41:54 AM »
Added a Reolink streaming camera to the website, I have all Reolink cameras now and use their handy client software, making management easy. I'm using a Webcam host BrownRice Internet out of Taos NM for the streaming camera and the support is great. We were even able to figure out how to stream with audio, but have it turned off due to privacy concerns. For audio to work had to use the RTMP stream to server which the camera supported. I know Reolinks may get a bad rap, but image quality vs bang for the buck is very good. Even if a camera fails, they are inexpensive to replace and have had a few failures, but not recently. What impresses me is they can survive extreme temps in the negative -30 below F range. The streaming camera can be found here:

I have 4 of them. Bought them because of the 2 year warranty. So far all are performing well.
They just came out with a 4K wireless 180 degree camera. Looks pretty nice but kinda pricey at $200.

Looks good Randy.

As far as the cost of the 180 degree camera, you pay for that wide angle view.  But when you can provide a view like mine, it's worth it to me.

They look very nice indeed. I have two Reolink RLC-510A. I certainly don't feel like spending money on a decent rtsp. I have a blueiris server and free access via

There is no money for more....

You can see them in the livecam section.

Hi, I have 2 but only one for the weather (E1 Outdoor) but it's not setup for external viewing as yet, I don't think my 72mb BB could handle the bigger images, not only that, I'm not so sure the weather laptop can spare any resources as its already running WD and WXSIM, its just an old I5 with either 8 or 16gb, that said, i wouldnt need WD to run the webcam side of things, AH, but then there's the issue of adding weather data to the camera as well, i did try another timelapse program that did all that but shut it down due to resource limitation :/

There is a problem with the camera at present, I only bought it in January, and that is that it shuts down completely, 100% dead, if I tap it a few times it will come back alive.

When i say dead I mean stone cold, no power to it, I am currently in talks with Reolink, once resolved I would like to find a low resource way to live stream with weather data but also produce a static image for other sites that use the image, Windy for example is just one of a few, anyhoo, I'm waffling, carry on... :D
Kind regards
