Re: Reolink RLC-420-5MP - so far so good

Mine is about 9x9x4 and had those tabs on them but I cut them off. The top seals with those 4 screws and there is a foam seal with it. I chose the larger box because of blowing rain since these cameras are not sealed like real outdoor cameras I had mine mounted higher than someone could reach but lo...

Re: Reolink RLC-420-5MP - so far so good

I also have been using indoor cameras outdoors. I have 2 of these Amcrest Indoor Pan/Tilt Security Wireless IP Camera IP2M-841B ethernet wired, mounted outside to monitor the deer population. Prior to today both were supplied the required external 5 volts by a nearby power source but thanks to the a...

THANKS! That is exactly what I need. I have 2 wired Amcrest ProHD cams and having to feed them 5 volts was a pain.

Re: Reolink RLC-420-5MP - so far so good

"Do you recommend the version with the 3.6mm lens or the 2.8mm lens?" This depends on your field of view. The 2.8 gives a field where the 3.6 gives narrower view but offers more detail. I think your Reolink's are 4mm which gives you about 80 degree wide. Google is your friend here with some comparis...

Re: Reolink RLC-420-5MP - so far so good

I have not tried any dome cameras due to their reputation for collecting dust which I suppose is mainly an outside mount issue. You did not mention bullet cams and I can tell you from first hand experience that spiders love them and will set off motion detection non stop. I do have 4 mounted outside...

Good to see you getting into POE and not trying to depend too much on WYZE

Digital Zoom

Does the Blue Iris maximum digital zoom have a specific factor like 25x, etc.?
The importance of this is only for my knowledge.
Thanks to all of you guys for sharing your knowledge.

Re: Blue Iris drops Wyze V2 video, won't reconnect

I cant seem to get the xxxx.41 update from wyze as I misplaced mine. I do have the 4.28.4.40 and will get it to you if you want it. I have no experience with BI4 as I bought version 5 after getting the WYZE bug and have moved to POE cameras. BI is a slow learning experience and I really like it.

Re: Blue Iris drops Wyze V2 video, won't reconnect

My Wyze cams are running on the 4.28.4.40 demo.bin except for one on the .41 bin. A couple days ago I checked on updates and could not even find the above to download. In setting up on BI, I entered the IP, name and password and clicked the FIND/INSPECT button and let it fill in the blanks but had t...

Re: Blue Iris drops Wyze V2 video, won't reconnect

This is not a Blue Iris problem. I have 4 Wyze2 cams running ( sometimes) on BI with 2 Amcrest Wifi cams and 10 standard IP cams with no issues what so ever. Wyze RTSP is no longer supported by Wyze because its hardware cannot handle RTSP and their main goal which is P2P. Pretty much any Wifi cams s...
