Not Reolink, but I've purchased a small number of outdoor cameras in the past year, both standalone and integrated with a PVR.@ "everybody" - an opportunity to "re-enter" this thread as I am now, finally (hopefully!??), going to get a system installed (biggest issue was finding someone who could install the "high-up" cameras for the PoE system that I want, but I think I have now found a guy who can do that) , but this has prompted the following "comment" and questions:
A very recent article in the major UK consumer protection organisation WHICH magasine (also called "WHICH") about "really cheap" wifi cameras that come from Shenzen in China (and are widely sold on Amazon, etc!): basically, most of them are "white box" products that are sold under multiple "brand names" with absolutely "SFA" backup tech support, and, most importantly, multiple unsecured "backdoors" into "your" LAN systems that are then open to spying/hacking or "whatever"!!
WHICH has a China-based investigator, which they trust, and who tried to find more about these suppliers and their products - but met "brickwalls" everywhere
Thus I, personally, would not go anywhere near CCTV products like that!
Has anyone had any "experience" with UHD kit sold under the "Reolink" brand (Chinese-based but with, so far, reasonably favourable reviews on Amazon, etc. and their tech support has responded very quickly and mostly sensibly to my questions over the last few days)?
"OK" - "done deal"No problem. But for your diligence I can look for another LNBF or couple and send them to you for a same price, namely 5 EUR. (shipping included)
