    Hi folks, it's finally here – Reolink works with Google Assistant. Now you can control the Reolink camera with your voice!

    Have a Goolge Home smart speaker or a Google Assistant app on your phone? Hook it up with your Reolink camera (following the guide here) and you can ASK your Reolink camera to deliver live streaming and check everything's going well, literally.

    Try the below simple voice commands:

    • Hey Google, show Garage Camera on Living Room TV.
    • Hey Google, what's on my Baby's Room camera?
    • Hey Google, show Front Door camera.

    Google Home

    Important Notes:

    • Google Assistant supported device: Argus 2, Argus Pro, Argus Eco, Argus PT, Keen, E1, E1 Pro
    • Currently available in US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
    • Please update your firmware and software (download here) to enable the feature.

    Your Reolink camera model and country are not on the list? No worries. We are working day and night to keep updating the supported devices and countries, and we'll keep updating this thread to let you know the latest progress.

    Let us know what you think about the Google Assistant integration by leaving us a comment below.

    Also, we'd like to learn if you have other brilliant ideas to make Reolink products even better. So what's on your next wish list?

    I updated my Argus 2 yesterday and it works great casting to my Nvidia Shield. There is about a 7-8 second delay though.
    Also, it would be so great to see this feature come to the NVR enabled cameras.

    Got my Argus 2 and Argus Pro casting to chromecast via Google Assistant. The only way i found to turn it off is to go to the Google Home app and hit the stop casting button from there. Is there another way? Thanks for bringing this feature!

    I hope my C1 Pro will also link to google assistant and Reolink cloud.

    C1 Pro can also work with Google Assistant at present, you need to upgrade the firmware of your camera to the latest. Please go to the Download Center to find the new firmware. Thank you for supporting Reolink.

    Hello,

    Any way to change streaming quality when casting from assistant? It is showing lowest quality possible.

    Also, RTSP streaming from all devices has always been very choppy no matter what program I use to stream with. Any way to fix this? Latest firmware did not help.

    Also experiencing the same issue with Google Assistant stream quality. I have the RLC-410W and when I tell Google to stream to my tv it streams it with an awfully low quality despite strong and fast connection. Latest firmware also did not help. How can we improve the casting quality and delay?
