Reolink NVR/camera


The integration allows you to control Reolink NVRs or cameras.

Configuration

Adding Reolink NVR/camera to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

A Reolink user account with admin privileges is needed for the proper operation of this integration.

Options

Options for Reolink NVR/camera can be set via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

  • Browse to your Home Assistant instance.
  • In the sidebar click on Settings.
  • From the configuration menu select: Devices & Services.
  • If multiple instances of Reolink NVR/camera are configured, choose the instance you want to configure.
  • Click on “Options”.
Protocol

Switch between RTSP or RTMP streaming protocol.

Camera streams

This integration creates a few camera entities, one for each stream type with different resolutions: Main, Sub, Ext, and Snapshots. The Sub stream camera entity is enabled by default; the other streams are disabled by default. The snapshots stream provides a sequence of image snapshots giving very low latency at the cost of a very low frame rate; this can be used when the hi-res RTMP/RTSP video stream has too much lag.

Reolink firmware limitations

  • The Reolink NVR only sends event-notifications if motion happens on the camera connected to the first (index “0”) channel, therefore the binary sensors of all channels will only be updated when the first channel sees motion.
  • Reolink doorbell presses only generate ONVIF event notifications when the doorbell is directly connected to your network. The doorbell visitor binary sensor will not work when connecting the Reolink doorbell to an NVR.
  • Older firmware versions do not expose the necessary information the integration needs to function. Ensure the camera is updated to the latest firmware prior to setting up the integration.
