Reolink RLC-411WS Wireless Security Camera: Conclusion

The RLC-411WS from Reolink is a great little camera. When I first got it, I was anxious to get this review posted, but I decided to spend some time with the camera and get to know it, and I can say that I am not disappointed. It is affordable and does everything that I needed a security camera to do. Now I can see what is going on whenever I want, day or night.

Since this camera uses software for motion detection, there can be many factors that drive how well this feature works, including the mounting location and exposure to weather.  For example, if you use the camera outside, then weather events like rain or snow can trigger false alarms. Tree shadows, car headlights, and even an occasional spider or insect can trigger false alarms, and this is to be expected. I had to spend some time making adjustment to the sensitivity and motion detection areas to find the balance between picking up human or animal motion and ignoring other natural events. And as the seasons change, you may need to make some tweaks. However, if you use the camera inside a building, then you won't have to deal with weather or tree motion.

As for the 16GB micro SD card, I was a little disappointed at first that the card is inside the camera, and there is no way to access it without taking the camera apart. But, after using the camera for a while, I realize that the 16GB size really allows for the storage of a fair amount of video. The camera will loop back and record over old video when it is full, so if you review your events regularly and download anything you want to save, then the 16GB seems to be a good size and there is no need for a larger card.

I have used the camera for a few months now and I am thoroughly impressed. You get great value and great performance. Reolink offers what seems to be regular firmware and app updates to address any issues and improve performance. Reolink is definitely paying attention to customer feedback. The extra long power cord extension is a huge plus and simplifies the installation process. The 2560 x 1440 resolution delivers some great pictures and video, and the night vision works well, too.

The RLC-411WS retails for $129, which is a very fair price for what you get, and if you shop around, you may even find it on sale. If you are interested in grabbing this kind of security solution Reolink is upping the ante by offering a coupon code for RLC-411WS that will save you an additional 10% off the purchase price when you use this code, np93qiaq.  Heck I liked mine so much that I ordered a second one! And Reolink has recently released the Argus, which is a battery powered wireless camera, so I will be reviewing that one soon!
