I received the Beta update, Thank You. But I guess I posted in the wrong forum. I was talking about the the NVR having trouble with motion detection, not my Windows PC. I only use the NVR and the mobile apps and don't use the client for PC.June 23, 2016 at 8:42 am in reply to: Does anyone else have a problem with Client V184.108.40.206 not recording to disk? #4226
When I upgraded the client from v220.127.116.11 to v18.104.22.168, the client would no longer record to disk on motion detect events. I checked configuration several times and it is correct and enabled but it will not record. Manual recording works fine. I downgraded to v22.214.171.124 and motion detect recording works again. Anyone else having problems?
Yes, I'm having problems with v126.96.36.199 too. What I have done is just set camera's to record all the time and used the schedule tab to set the time parameters. A poor work around but until the next client software release, it seems to be working.
Well, the one dot of signal strength got to me again today so I tried to get the camera to connect directly to the router.
After MUCH trying of your instructions I finally got the camera to connect...(leave password blank)....sort of.
Now I have ALL FOUR bars of wifi signal strength.....BUT NO PICTURE just a black screen.
Also, in the device list on the NVR menu, it shows the camera as a 192.168.x.x:9000 and not a 172.16.xx.xxx:9000 IP address like the other cameras, but Status is ”connect failed”
I cannot leave this like that and wait till tomorrow to see if you have any more suggestions so I will try to get this back to connecting to the NVR wifi with the one dot of signal strength and at least having a picture. I will try one last time tomorrow to connect the camera directly to my router if you have any suggestions.
OK, got it back to how it was, I do have a picture now with a dot of wifi signal.
I bought an RLC-210W from Amazon for $65 and it ships from Virginia.
These cameras only work with the RLK4-210WB NVR as I understand it.
I have the RLK4-210WB NVR kit that I also bought from Amazon.
I can only speak about the RLC-210W cameras and they do.
OK, I figured it out. The problem was that I was using:
https// you have to use:
The Firefox plugin shows up automatically and then after you install it, Firefox is ready to use.
OK, great....I have the RLK4-210WB with four cameras. How do I do this?
Found how to change the camera labels so I'm all set. 🙂
I worked on this some more today and finally got the wifi icon to show.
I put the SSID of my router in and also the password.
When I unplug the ethernet cable I just get a black screen that says ”video Loss”
I will try to get it set back to how it was....at least with one signal bar the NVR could receive a picture.
I have the signal back, but now I have two ”camera 1′s” If you could advise me how to change this to camera 1 and 2
I'll call it good and forget about that other method. Thank You
I turned off the camera.
I connected the camera to the router with an ethernet cable.
I turned the camera back on.
The router and NVR are connected to each other with an ethernet cable.
Now I open up the Reolink client on my PC. v188.8.131.52
When I click the settings gear, this is what I get: As you can see, there are no wifi settings.
This is what I meant when I mentioned that things don't happen as your instructions suggest.
Do I reset the camera or delete the camera from the NVR before trying this again?
I received the app you sent and emailed it to the RCA tablet and it is up an running!
Thank You very much for sending it. Very Happy!
I tried what you suggested with the ethernet cable.....things did not happen like you said, and I have no idea if the camera is connected to the router or NVR. The camera never called for the SSID or p/w.
”2. connect the camera to the router by wifi signal
In this step, you may need to connect the camera to the router by a network cable, scan it via reolink client and set the SSID and password of the router.” After connecting the camera to the router with ethernet cable scan the QR code with iphone? Where is this QR code? On the NVR?
I have a computer in my workshop which is 80 feet past the wifi camera and it connects wirelessly at 300 Mbs and can capture All bars of signal strength. My router is a Netgear Nighthawk 7500 36 ~ 38 feet away from the router and the wifi extender which is 0nly 6 feet away from the camera is a Belkin N300. I will try to do your install routine again.
Both tablets have two cameras….one forward facing and one rear facing.
Hmm.....seems like there should be an ”edit” button for adding or amending posts but just to add to the above post. I used the QR code from the CD that came with the RLK4 outfit and it just sent me to the Google Play store and I still get the same errors, "no qualifying devices found" or "Your device isn't compatible with this version".
