Hello all. I recently setup the Reolink 8 camera system and so far, everything’s working pretty good. Is it necessary to update firmware if no problems exist and has anyone noticed any improvements after the updates?
Hi, I don’t think it’s necessary to update firmware for the sake of it unless it’s billed as correcting a particular issue or feature addition. Generally, you need to update the corresponding NVR software with the camera software to ensure compatibility.
If you’re happy with it i’d leave it unless instructed by Reolink in a support call scenario.
I’m one of those people that can’t help themselves and update the firmware when it’s released regardless of current performance. However, I rolled back the latest software to date to the previous version as I didn’t like what they done to the white balance which was apparently done to correct situations where sunlight glare was causing issues. In most other cases it might be an improvement but for me it wasn’t as it messed with the settings for night vision.
