I'm not sure where I read that. Perhaps I'm mistaken.
Frequently changing batteries is going to be expensive!
What's the point of the PIR sensor if it's recommended to be turned off? How else would one be notified if there was movement caught by the camera? I like the Argus but wish now I had purchased one that uses power and not batteries.
Sounds like the only thing you need to solve is the issue of spiders building their webs over your camera lenses blocking you from getting a good view of any thieves. I always knew spiders were evil even before I had outdoor cameras!
Are you having any issues with your Argus? Are you getting the 180 day standby estimate? Do you use the Client on a PC or Mac or only the mobile app? I want to love my Argus but the battery life is awful.
With the new batteries that were shipped with my Argus camera, I only got 20 days in standby mode before getting a low battery alert. The battery log showed the camera had a total less than 21 minutes of on time during those 20 days. Reolink claims the Argus camera should get 4 to 6 months in mostly standby mode, out of these batteries.
Anyone else having the same issue?
Raknaman...When you're in Standby mode, is the status of the camera CLOSED? Is your PIR on or off? I'm trying to narrow down why my batteries get low after only 2 or 3 days. However I understand 20 days is well below the stated 180 days in stand by.

I can't get more than 2 to 3 days of battery use, in standby mode!!! I agree that the battery life wasn't tested properly or we were mislead. I can't afford to use the camera!! Ugh!
One more thing. If I have the client running on PC and my mobile phone, does that affect the battery? The mobile status is CLOSED but the client on the PC says it's logged on.
I already went through 8 batteries. I was confused about how to set up the camera so it went to stand by so for the first 2 days I had live stream active. I've had to play around with the camera and settings to test the best practice for conserving battery life. Otherwise I'll go broke buying batteries.
