In this ReoLink RLC11A Review, we look into the quality, feature and performance aspects of this security camera. We will also compare it with some of the other available cameras from ReoLink, including the RLC10A.
The Premise of the RLC-811A
The Reolink RLC-811A is a high-quality security camera that is designed to provide reliable surveillance coverage for a home or business setup. It boasts a 1080p HD resolution and a wide-angle lens that allows you to capture clear and detailed video footage.
The camera also has infrared night vision capabilities, allowing it to capture clear images even when capturing those images in low-light conditions.
One of the standout things to note about the RLC-811A is its ease of use. The camera is pure simplicity to set up. Just plug it into an NVR and it works without any additional power supply.
It can be easily accessed and controlled through the Reolink app, which (as would be expected) is available for both Android and iOS devices.
Amongst other things, the Reolink mobile app allows you to:
- view live footage
- review recorded footage
- adjust the camera’s settings
- speak through the camera
- use the digital zoom
In terms of performance, the Reolink RLC-811A delivers excellent results. The camera’s 1080p HD resolution ensures that video footage is clear and detailed. The wide-angle lens allows really does let you capture a wide field of view.
The infrared night vision capabilities also work extremely well, allowing you to capture clear images even in low-light conditions from surprisingly long distances.
Versus the RLC-810A
When comparing the Reolink RLC-811A to other cameras available from Reolink, one potential alternative to consider is the Reolink RLC-10A.
This camera also features 1080p HD resolution and infrared night vision capabilities, but it has a more compact design and a slightly narrower field of view. The RLC-811A also has digital zoom built in but, in reality, you might not use that as much as you think once you have it set up.
The RLC-811A is also quite a lot larger and heavier than the RLC-810A, so you might want to factor that in.
Whether the RLC-10A or the RLC-811A is the better choice will depend on your specific surveillance needs and preferences. Both run off Power over Ethernet (PoE) and can plug straight into an NVR.
Buy or Not?
I feel that the Reolink RLC-811A is an excellent security camera. It is well worth considering if you are in the market for a reliable and high-quality surveillance solution and the price is very reasonable.
For me, it’s a definite buy. This is one great little camera and does almost everything imaginable except for Pan and Tilt.
