HONG KONG, June 18, 2019 — Reolink today announces its Argus 2, Argus Pro, Argus Eco, Argus PT, E1 and E1 Pro work with Google Assistant, enabling customers to use their voice to control the 6 Reolink smart home cameras to get live streaming with Google Nest Hub or Chromecast-enabled TVs.

Customers now can use simple commands to control the cameras, by saying ”Hey Google, show [name of the room where the camera is placed] on [name of Chromecast device]”, to get live streaming directly without any complicated configuration.

Verbal order is the easiest and smartest way to control smart home devices, and Reolink aims to provide the most seamless experience for customers. The power of Google Assistant to hear and interpret voice demands makes smart home control simpler and more intuitive.

    It works, but it only plays sub stream, not the main stream and there is no option to select it.

    • Elvia

      Hello Daniel, we will keep improving the integration between our cameras and Google Assistant 🙂

  • Misotonic

    Google Assistant is all very well, but what about Amazon Alexa? Or even more radically Apple HomeKit (like the just-announced support from the Arlo range). Reolink are rather behind the curve on all of this.

    • Elvia

      Hello there, our products with be compatible with Alexa soon. At the same time, our R&D team is working hard to bring the integration between our cameras and HomeKit.

      We are always aiming to provide the best and most seamless compatibility performance between our products and third-party software or firmware so that our customers can get a truly smart and connected home 🙂

      • Misotonic

        That's absolutely great news! I had started to look at alternative manufacturers’ products because I was beginning to think that Reolink were never going to deliver this functionality. Now I won't have to!

        • Misotonic

          Just to prove the difference that news makes, I have just purchased two more Reolink cameras (1x RLC422 and 1x RLC511) because I have renewed confidence in your future developments. I had visited your site and looked at the blog to see whether or not Amazon Alexa support was coming before deciding to buy two cameras from another manufacturer.

          • Elvia

            Thank you for supporting our Reolink products 🙂

            I've double checked with our R&D team.

            Good news is that our products are compatible with Alexa (the function part). However, we have to get the license or permission from Amazon.

            Once Amazon authorizes the integration, we will announce the compatibility in our news soon 🙂

            Just stay tuned!

  • RobertPegu

    Excuse me what about Google Assistant integration for RLC-410?

  • Rui Meireles

    I'm very interested in these cameras, specially because they have integration with Google Assistant.
    However, I live in the Netherlands, and I just found out that this feature is only enabled for US, Canada, Australia, & New Zealand.
    Are there plans to support more regions anytime soon? Or is there any configuration I can do in order to be able to use it? It will be a huge disappointment if I can't use this feature.

    • Elvia

      Hi Rui, both Reolink Cloud service and Google Home support are expected to be released in Europe in the first quarter of 2020. We will keep you updated if there is any news on it. Please stay tuned!
