    I really, really need a way to configure my person-detection cameras with a smartphone alert that will be loud enough and long enough to wake me up at night. I need to know immediately, not later in the morning, that someone is messing with my stuff. Please offer ideas how to do this (RLC-810A) or add a feature to do it.

    We are sorry to tell you that the APP cannot support this function currently. We will forward your feedback to our R&D team. Hope that they can make improvements in the future.

    Thanks Sally. It seems like it would be a pretty easy feature them to add.

    The decibel level of a phone is determined more by the phone specs, not the Reolink app or a music player app.

    1. I have the Reolink client on my laptop. When it gets notifications it is a very loud beep, much louder than the phone. Maybe you could set one up close to your bed and leave it running all night.

    2. Your phone should have an audio output jack for earbuds. You could get a small stereo system or radio with an input/auxiliary jack for your bedroom. Get a chord with correct jack size, I think 1/8″, to plug from your phone into the stereo input/auxiliary jack. Turn your stereo volume up. Whatever sound comes from your phone will be played on the stereo system. Yes, this is a hassle. Don't blame me if this does not work for you. All I know is I tried it on my stereo system and it works.

    3. I assume people with NVRs can turn the volume up on their display screens and run them 24/7. But this would require you sleeping close to the display/TV.

    Maybe you don't even need a full audio system, a little external Bluetooth driven, USB-powered speaker would be enough (i.e. look in Amazon for B08RRVWVGQ reference). My wife has one of these (not this, but another similar brand/model) and I can assure you that audio output is strong enough to get on your nerves.

    Good idea Jose, I didn't think of that.

    Did you check your phone volume settings? My android phone has a master ring volume, I pull it down and it shows separate volume controls for media (music) and notifications. See if your notifications volume is all the way up.

    Thanks for your suggestions!
    I'll try a Bluetooth speaker but I'm concerned the short duration will still be an issue.
