    Reolink should really look to develop a video doorbell that works with existing NVR's and is powered via POE. I purchased a ring doorbell a while back but ended up returning it to the store, just wasn't for me. I would love to see one released with similar features that works with their system.

    I was planning on logging in and making the exact same suggestion! Bernie beat me to it. This is a great idea. I want two video doorbells, but don't need additional monthly service charges and want it integrated with my existing Reolink NVR.

    One more comment. Running POE ethernet to the doorbell would be an issue for me. I would like WIFI for the device with the device powered by the existing doorbell transformer.

    Wiring would be a major issue for most customers. Just as a side note, I have not (yet) purchased a doorbell camera because my doorbell is mounted ”sideways” next to the front door. The door is recessed and the only reasonable way for the builder to run the bell wire was down the small ”side wall”. So, a doorbell camera will get a good view of someone who is standing at the front door (sideways to the camera), but will be invisible to the camera until they literally are touching the front door.

    I'm really sorry to tell you that currently we haven't heard about any news on the doorbell camera. We'll resubmit a request to the R&D people and ask them to carefully consider it again. Thanks.

    This is a great idea. I have looked into the various video doorbells currently available and none of them tick the boxes. Most of them either only support cloud storage, or record only to a local SD card.

    In my opinion, there is currently a gap in the market to release a video doorbell which supports Wi-Fi, recording to on-board SD storage and integration with a NVR with ONVIF and RTSP support.

    It would be a great addition to Reolink's product line.

    I agree, I would prefer to have this run on the existing doorbell wiring similar to how Nest or Ring do it. I cannot run new wiring to my doorbell easily.
