Great Camera at a Great Price with a Great App to Manage it!

I've had this camera for a couple of weeks now, and this camera has been amazing. This is my 5th Reolink camera and they are the greatest value on the market. This 5MP camera is quite a bit clearer than my 4MP version which was a pleasant surprise and I have had no issues with fogging as some have reported. I plugged this camera into my POE switch and by the time I opened up my Reolink app it was already online and previewing!

Pros: Great Resolution and the fastest setup around, very Sturdy Aluminum Housing and Polycarbonate Dome!

Cons: The only one I could find is that the base does not mount to a standard 4" round outlet box. My Sister was building a new house so we installed 4" round ceiling boxes around the perimeter of the house to put these cameras into. It would be a super easy install if it just matched up to a standard 4" ceiling box (i.e. 3.5" center mounting holes). I think this could be an easy fix for Reolink and it would make this an even greater product!

The Pros outweigh the sizing issue and I will be ordering several more of the RLC-422 for the house and just make an adapter plate, to match the ceiling boxes.

Excellent quality unit, wish it had Pan/Tilt, look forward to purchasing more

I'm a bit late to the game writing up a review as the winter weather made installation difficult and I wanted to give an honest review.

Overall I quite like the unit! The optical zoom is an excellent feature, mounting it was straight forward enough and the POE feature is one I've come to very much enjoy when installing cameras. One of my biggest disappointments with this camera vs the two bullet cameras I have was the lack of on-board memory. In reading other feedback messages it appears I may have simply missed that it inserting a memory card is possible; I'll have to look into this later.

The only real thing I feel is missing from this camera is the ability to pan/tilt. The housing certainly lends itself to the capacity and, in my application, it would certainly make it much more useful.

All components appear to be excellent quality and the installation is straight-forward. Given how good of quality the image is from this unit, and how well the various Reolink units I have work, I look forward to purchasing more Reolink products to replace various other cameras I have in use.

Great combination of value and quality

I have been a satisfied owner of two earlier model 4MP Reolink bullet cameras since this past spring. My initial choice of those cameras was based on the positive reviews I'd seen along with the ability to record reliably without committing to a monthly cloud subscription fee as some competitors require. Have been very happy with how easy they were to setup, the quality of the image and the ease of use in the app. Most importantly they have put out an image consistently regardless of whether the temperature has been +30 or -30 celsius in our extreme climate.

Have received this newest model to add to my security setup. Due to winter temperatures being too cold to attempt an outdoor setup I won't be able to speak in as much detail about lengthy usage quite yet. I can say that setup is as simple as I've come to appreciate from Reolink. So far in limited testing it looks like I'm going to very much appreciate the extra detail that comes with the step up to 5MP. Am hoping the dome camera solves the regular issue I've been having with spider webs causing bad motion alerts at night, which was the case with both bullet cam installs. Have added on-board storage via a 3rd party MicroSD card, which was a pretty easy to pop in and have recognized by the camera.

The only small con I can think of at this point is the lack of POE, which I respect is meant to be accomplished by a different model. My system is all wifi-based right now but in a perfect world any camera I mount would be POE-ready so as to be future-proof if/when I move toward that type of system.

Reolink RLC-422W

Received my package last week and as always Reolink didn't fail in their excellent packaging. Was surprised at the dome structure of the camera which was a bit bulky and very noticeable especially with with two antenna. The camera was very easy to set-up with very detailed instructions. I was able to add this camera to my Reolink app alongside my 5 Argus cameras. The picture quality of the RLC-422W is excellent and extremely clear. The zoom function works well and is able to auto focus but you can still adjust the focus. There is some lag when you are using the zoom option. I was interested in placing this camera in the corner of my house, but unfortunately the power cord is slightly short. I think the power cord should be about 5-10 feet longer and that would be ideal. Having an SD slot would make a great change for recording purposes. Overall the camera is an excellent price for the functions it providers. I have recommended Reolink to many folks, and will continue to do so. Keep making great products!

My Camera Prototype RLC-422 – 5 MP

Unpacking, connecting and installing was quickly and without problems. The Reolink software that I have already installed for my other camera (RLC-411 4 MP) has easily detected the new camera. The set-up process for the camera is very simple and is consistent with other Reolink cameras. As this Model has a Micro SD Card reader, I installed one 64 GB card. It is not as easy as I expected. It is to recommend doing that before you mount the camera. There is room for improvement for future models regarding the SD-Card slot.

The picture is amazing, and I can see a big difference to my Reolink RLC-411 4mp Camera. The view at night is very good and compared to the RLC-411 it is possible to switch off the IR Light. That is handy if you want that the camera can’t be spotted at night and use only existing light around.

The response on the zoom and focus is a bit slow. So, it is not easy to focus manually. For this you have a very good autofocus that works in 98% of the cases.

It will not be my last product made by Reolink and I can highly recommend them.

Reolink RLC-422W 5MP

I received this well built RLC-422W camera 2 days ago and installed right away. As with my other Reolink cameras this was very easy to install and worked pretty much right out of the box. Although it is wireless both 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz (and the wireless works well) I chose to run an ethernet cable as with my other Reolink products as I find better connections via hardwire rather than wifi in the areas I have my cameras installed.

Picture on this camera being 5mp is excellent. The zoom function works very well and seems to be very responsive as does the auto focus feature.

Would like to see an sd card slot and microphone in this model.

Despite the lack of sd card and mic I would not hesitate to recommend any Reolink product to friends or family. In fact, my neighbor has now purchased 6 Reolink cameras based on my recommendation.

I look forward to adding more cameras to my system and will certainly purchase Reolink products based on my experience so far.

Exceptional value for the price

I've been using the 422W for the past couple weeks and I can also confirm that it is an exceptional value. I have five of the 410S and the 422W is a huge upgrade mostly based on night viewing and more specifically the IR mode since all cameras look good when there is plenty of light. I'm really impressed by how solidly it is built. The dome format helps the camera be more discreet than the 410S. Compared to the 410S, the image details are significantly clearer and there is very little noise in the shadows. What bothered me most about the 410S was the narrow, fixed field of view. The 422W gets so much wider than the 410S, but I can use the optical zoom to get the same field of view if I wanted to and it is still incredibly sharp and smooth.

I tested the device over Wi-Fi and it streams smoothly. Like their other IP cameras, you can adjust the bitrate in the app or client if it slows down your network. Unfortunately it doesn't do PoE so I can't easily replace all of my 410S cameras - I have to run new cables for power.

Despite what others claim, this DOES have a MicroSD slot, but it DOES NOT have audio. It's still an amazing camera, and with exceptional values like this, Reolink will soon become a household name.

Almost Perfect, RLC-422W

Let me start with the Pros. It's a 5MP camera and it's clear to have better video images than my other 4MP cameras (RLC-410, RLC-410S, RLC-411WS 4MP, and RLC-422-P 4MP). I get good picture qualities on both WiFi and network cable connections. I'm surprised the video is very smooth with my Engenius EAP9550 wireless N access point. The 4x zoom is a plus but I'm probably not going to use it often since I'm a set-it and foget-it person. However, I still tried the zoom function to make sure it works just in case I need it later. The image is very clear with the max zoom and the autofocus does kick in to do its job. It comes with a heavy duty vandal-proof housing and it's ideal to install the camera near entrance. The night vision is better than my other older models.

The only Con is missing PoE support. This is probably not an issue for most of users since this is a WiFi camera. My point of view is the camera supports both WiFi and network cable connections. With today's standard, all network cabled camera should support PoE.

A side note for newbie, so far I have helped friends and relatives to install multiple Reolink systems in 4 different locations. All users are very happy with Reolink products. I'm not a reseller and I don't make any money by recommending or installing Reolink systems for my friends and relatives but Reolink is a very cost effective solution. The key is to do some research before you purchase your new NVR and cameras. Different types of cameras should be considered for different purposes/environments. Unless your initial setup has a 100% coverage of your properties; otherwise, you should oversize your NVR system. I started with a 8-channel NVR + 4 cameras 18 month ago. And now I have used all 8 channels with different types of cameras. I might have to buy a new 16-channel NVR this year if I decide to add a couple more cameras to cover my front porch (preventing package thief).

rlc-422

the camera has very clear video and is built very sturdy. the couple of things it needs is an sd card to store video ,sound and mounting a dome camera in a mobile home is hard i thought i was getting a bullet camera like in the picture which would have been so easy for my mobile home like the 2 other reolink cameras i have that are very awesome with all the right features. one more thing i think all their cameras need a longer power cord at least 3 more feet longer. but keep up the good work my cameras i bought all are awesome
