At 6′ away, I don't see why you would need the zoom function, but yes the 411ws would work well for you. I have both the 411ws and the 410ws. I get great pictures from both cameras, and the zoom works great on the 411ws. It's a little slow, but it does work. Depending on where you plan on putting the laptop, you might want to consider leaving the network cable connected to the camera. You'll have quicker response and smoother viewing by doing it that way, rather than over the wireless connection.
I believe I'm trying to do the same thing. My website needs an embedded code for me to live stream my camera. Is there any way that Reolink can provide this? It'd be alot easier than me having to download an encoder, set up a twitch account, etc. etc.
Also, I'm able to log into my 2 other cameras by typing...http://(wan ip address):port/cgi-bin/snap.cgi?user=admin&password=xxxxxxx but it's only a snap shot, and I don't have any control over it. I know Reolink has another way to log in besides wan ipaddy:http port. But I'm unable to locate it.
That fixed that camera, but I now have another problem with a different camera. I'll start my own thread, sorry for hi-jacking this one dl justice.
I've already done that. I'm able to see the camera, and change settings the same as Djustice, but the live feed never plays. It just shows a circle go around and around, as if it was trying to load.
I'm in the same boat. I've tried both Chrome, and IE on Windows XP and Windows 10 without any luck.
