    Is there a documented list of available cgi-bin functions, such as the snapshot?

    I would like to be able to:
    reboot the camera
    turn LEDs on/off
    control PTZ
    set indoor/outdoor

    etc.
    FOSCAM has a rich set of CGI-bin controls, hoping REOLINK does as well.

    Yes, our CGI is under testing now. Will be released when it is done.

    However, LEDs cannot be turned off by software. Which also need some changes for the hardware.

    Are the list of CGI commands available now? (since the new firmware is released and CGI is listed in the changelog)

    Dear Joshua,

    After upgraded the firmware, pls use below URL to get the snapshot:
    http://(ip address)/cgi-bin/api.cgi?cmd=Snap&channel=0&rs=(any combination of numbers and letters)&user=(user name)&password=(user password)
    Note: Pls replace the ()part to be your camera info.
    Every time you refresh the website it will snap a new picture.

    For more info about CGI file, pls contact us by support@reolink.com

    I tried your link above and I get the following error:

    403 Forbidden

    I'm running firmware 806_16060603 firmware on a RLC-410WS

    Hello, Buzzatronic,
    The CGI command above will only work with the latest firmware, please upgrade your camera to the latest version 1168_16070803. You may download it by referring to our Firmware Download page.

    Thanks, that worked. 4 Updated cameras and now I have the CGI URL working for snapshots on my security dashboard tablets in my house.

    What app are you using for your tablets to do this?

    Sadly my ”it works” message lasted only a few hours. Now all of my cameras are returning an error. Going to them from my browser results in a number of errors.

    Two of my cameras fail with ”502 Bad Gateway – nginx/1.6.2″ and the third simply shows ” Second camera shows ”[ { ”cmd” : ”Snap”, ”code” : 1, ”error” : { ”detail” : ”set config failed”, ”rspCode” : -13 } } ]”

    Only 1 of the 4 cameras still works with this URL system.

    Any update on this? These commands don't work for more than an hour or two for me which makes them pretty much unusable for my scenario.

    Sorry about all the trouble. We have our engineers testing on the CGI commands now, we will notify you if there's any update.
    Thanks for your support!

    any update? anything at all? it should be pretty easy to list out all the available cgi commands. not all of us have windows, so the provided exe is not helpful. i'd like to be able to administer the reolink camera without the hassle of windows. is there any documentation on how to interact with the following ports:

    554
    6001
    8000
    1935
    9000

    Even bare-bones documentation would be helpful.

    thanks!
