Fixes some bugs.

App is clean but functionality could improve
I like the look of this app very well. It’s clean and crisp and the motion detection seems to work fairly well honestly. But sometimes there will be a spider to start crawling on it or wasp flying around it and my notifications will be blowing up. I wish there was a “mute notifications for 1 hour” or “drop sensitivity for one hour” or “rest of day”. I usually turn it off and forget to turn it back on later and it stays off for a week. Also a very big issue I do not like is when I click on the notification for my motion alert, it opens the app and shows me all of my cameras EXCEPT the one I tried to view. I have to back out of the window and start from scratch so it will fix the bug of hiding my notified window. I am confused
A not so big issue that would be cool though, would be to have the default open of the app show a 4 split window view of 4 of your main cameras instead of just one camera in the scroll. I’d like a quick view often of my cameras but I have to go through several steps to see what’s going on at home.
After reading a bunch of the negative reviews I felt compelled to leave one of my own. I have had the app (and 5 cameras - 2 4MP bullet cams, 2 4MP domes, 1 C1 WiFi) installed for the last month. This app has met my expectations ever since install. It was very easy to connect my cameras to the app and I find it much easier to control their settings through the app then through the NVR. The video and audio quality is amazing but that is going to differ depending on your personal internet speeds. Video playback within the app is ok but could be better. Controlling the playback is the hardest part. If you want to specifically see a certain time it can be difficult fine tuning the playback to where you want because you have to use a finicky slider to get to the time you are looking for.
The only reason I gave it 4, instead of 5, stars is because of the motion sensing capability. This really is more of a Reolink issue though and not the apps fault. As other users have stated, if you turn motion notification on you will be getting messages all the time. Even when the sensitivity levels are decreased and you adjust the field of sensitivity. Overall though, I use this as a nice back up to my Abode alarm system and it gives me the ability to remotely check on any unexpected status changes or alarm activations. Love the system and plan on getting another C1 camera, in the future, to be used as a nursery camera.

Ok so here are few problems that I have discovered so far with my cams. I will list the pros and cons.
1) Cloud storage only records up to 8 second video clips only. There are no options to change that yet. I hope Reolink reads this and pushes an update to fix this to at least 1 minuet of cloud recording that would be an amazing.
2)Recording that gets stored on ur memory card only records up to 30 seconds. I hope Reolink also reads this and pushes an update where we have an option to record up to 2 or 3 minutes after a event is triggered. 95% of the time camera won’t record for several seconds after its 30 seconds of recording. When u go back to view the recorded footage u will see camera is missing a lot of the event that happened.
3) Cameras motion sensors only activate when an object comes from the side but, if u walk straight towards the camera with high motion setting on the camera will not active until ur almost standing directly underneath it. This defeats the purpose of having cameras, and when it finally decides to record u don’t get to the persons face. Hope Reolink can fix this somehow.
1) Excellent price
2) Great video quality
3) Good WiFi range
4) Loud and clear 2 way speaker.
5) Super easy to setup
6) Good battery life depending on how much activity is happening in front of the cam.
7) Easy to use app
