Reolink 4K Security Camera System Features
The Reolink 4K Security Camera System by Philips is a great system for your home. I purchased it and installed it myself. Here is what you need to know about this product before you start installation.
In order to install the Reolink 4K Security Camera System, you will need at least four of them. Get the best ones, you can afford. Installing the camera system yourself is not difficult. There are four cables that are needed to complete installation. If you have only one camera, you may cut these down to size to fit your system with no problem.
First of all, you need to buy four Reolink cameras. Each one has two channels and each has at least eight cameras. You can actually have up to twelve if you want. This is all that is needed in order to provide the most coverage. However, you do not need to have more than sixteen since the video will be sent to the cloud anyway.
Once you have purchased the camera system, turn it on. It is important that the camera you have hooked up goes to Home Automation. If it does not go to Home Automation, then you should go to your router and check to see whether or not you are forwarding the signal to Home Automation. If it is, then make sure to check the camera’s setting so that it will forward the signal. If not, then it should be noted and you can change it. Otherwise, you will be cutting off potential evidence.
Then, turn on your home monitoring service. This will allow you to get connected to the camera from wherever you happen to be. Some of the services will even allow you to view live on the camera from anywhere with Internet access. There should be a button on the remote, you will need to press so that you can start watching. However, do this quickly so that you don’t miss anything.
Check the picture being taken. If it does not look like what you are looking for, you will have to go back to the house. However, there is an easy way to find out if the camera actually took the picture you are looking at. You can go online to an image search and click on the picture. You can then see what resolution the camera has and if there are any zooming or panning options. This will let you know the image quality of your security camera.
Test everything out. It is important to test the cameras’ functions. If you are not satisfied, then there is no reason to pay for a system that will give you results you are not going to be happy with. Take the camera outside and do some kind of proofing. Look around the outside of the house and the yard to make sure the camera is picking up the right areas and is not missing anything.
Finally, ask the customer service department about installation. You will probably have to call in a tech to come install the system for you. They will probably offer you to do it yourself if you aren’t too nervous. However, it might be best if you get some help from someone who has done this before. The more experience you have, the better you can understand what to do. Just be careful not to have too many wires, and never plug the camera into the wall too deeply.
It is also a good idea to read online reviews about any security camera system you are thinking about buying. If the reviews are good, then chances are the camera system will work as promised. However, if there are lots of unhappy customers, then you may want to think twice about purchasing the system. If you are looking for a great deal on a high quality camera system, then don’t worry.
The Reolink 4K Security Camera System can handle all of the video footage that you take and save it on your hard drive or let it stream directly to your television. This is perfect for the home or business because you will have plenty of time to look over all of the videos that have been taken and make sure nothing has been missed. If you are just setting up the cameras at your home, then the system you purchase may be included in your package.
Another reason to buy this system is because you can monitor the camera feed from practically anywhere. You can do this right from your computer desk while you are working. The only thing is, you need to make sure the windows you are trying to view are open to receive the feed. If you plan on watching the camera from your computer then the remote viewing feature of the Reolink 4K Security Camera System is definitely a must have.
