Hello community, I'm fairly new here, owning the Argus2 since a few weeks.
I found some mayor problems that let me think this nice camera was on purpose crippled by a buggy ill conceived firmware / software. While the initial setup worked like a charm, the trouble started right afterwards.
I live in Europe, where the cloud service is not offered, but there is also no alternative option, so the videos are only stored on the SD-Card – if somebody is trespassing and takes the camera with him/her the video files are gone. Not very secure. Then I thought I can use the E-Mail option instead. The setup is problematic as it only accepts SMTP with an E-Mail Address + Password as authentication and the E-Mail Domain mustn't contain a dash /hyphen. So I could not use my own E-Mail address. Instead I used a Gmail address, just to find out that the camera only sends out ONE picture, once the motion detection is triggered. In none of my trials i could see the moving objects, only the empty background.
My conclusion is that a great camera was made bad by software. I'm still hoping that Reolink will change that soon, as I was so far very satisfied with the bullet cams I own.
