Reolink releases a new Wi-Fi home security-cam with 355-degree pan and 50-degree tilt for under US$60
Reolink has announced a new addition to its security-camera line-up. The E1 Pro is a simple-looking unit; however, it has the appreciable field and range of 'vision' that might be found in similar products on the higher end of the personal surveillance scale.
The Reolink E1 Pro can tilt its 4MP camera through 50 degrees, and also pan it up to 355 degrees, in accordance with the motion it detects. It can record at resolultions of up to 2560x1440, and stream the same via Wi-Fi. The E1 Pro can upload up to 7 days' worth of this footage to a secure cloud, or record it to an SD card of up to 64GB in storage.
However, unlike some other Reolink domestic security-cams, the E1 Pro needs a conventional power adapter to stay on. On the other hand, like some Nest cams, it also has a mic through which the connected user can speak to those in front of it on the dedicated smartphone app.
The camera will also be updated in the future so as to integrate with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. It also has infra-red features, by which it can operate in lighting conditions as low as 0 lux over a maximum 40-foot distance. The Reolink E1 Pro does all this at a normal price of US$55, although it is also currently available at a 10% discount for a limited time.
