    I would like to get on an email notification list when a doorbell camera is available. I know you previously provided a link, but it did not work for me.

    I agree with what most people gave as important features, like- wifi compatible, using existing home doorbell wiring for power, and compatible with Reolink NVR, including alerts. Other- ”nice” features would be: audio communication, and configurable recording captures and playback.

    Thanks

    Acky

    I hope Reolink releases a doorbell cam soon. Reolink will gain market share when they release a doorbell cam. Reolink knows what the competition is selling. Here's my wish list for doorbell cam.
    2K or more
    140-160 field of view, 1×1 aspect ratio so you can see packages on porch
    human, vehicle, package detection
    SD card slot in back
    power options wired or battery
    WDR for light/shadow contrast
    color night vison with spotlight
    two way talk
    all functions controlled by phone app, computer, NVR

    Nobody makes a perfect camera is all features everybody wants. But if Reolink gets this right they will have a hit.

    This site would not let me edit my prior post, meant to say Nobody makes a perfect camera with all features everybody wants. Another nice feature would be preview snapshots...

    I thought of another desired feature. Have the doorbell camera work with homeowner's exisiting digital or mechanical chimes?

    Thanks doucettea. I knew there were previous posts. I wanted to add my comments as well. The more customers urging Reolink the better.

    Just came to say I would love a reolink doorbell camera. Just use the same 4k hardware, PoE, and maybe a 140 degree fisheye lens. It would be nice if the app would ring on your phone home and away.

    I have a nest protect. But the rest of the nest products seem like last gen tech at tomorrow tech prices.

    If you are going to make it work with existing chimes, just make one with a transformer, and another one that's wifi. So you have 3 options, ring on the phone for apartments that might not have doorbells, ring on a speaker, ring on a traditional chime for fancy houses. You should also make the doorbell have an info bit because some homes or businesses have more than 1 entrance, as some chimes have 2 rings

    Ive been told that doorbell cameras with ONVIF will work with Reolink? Ive got a POE Reolink system but you don't have a doorbell. If I buy a ONVIF camera, can this link into the Reolink software? And if so how?

    I don't know how compatible other brand cams are with Reolink. From comments I've read it seems a lot are not. Some brands use proprietary software making it difficult to mix/match. I know with Blue Iris you can use various brands cameras with ONVIF. On Reolink Reddit forum it's been announced Reolink is developing a doorbell camera, they asked for recommendations about the features. I'm guessing it won't be available for six months or a year, but I don't know how far along they are with it. I want one for sure.
