Can work without internet. Stores video locally.

Only annoyance is that it's hard to make the light not turn on on Shabbos. There's a workaround; I can post it if there's interest.

No. Just a front end "hack".

I'll post at a later time - need to take screenshots

If you don't want the light around the button to turn on when someone approaches the camera, you'll need to adjust two settings.

1. Status LED Setting: Head over to the "Always on at night" setting for the Status LED. Make sure to switch this off.


2. Alarm Delay Setting: The current issue with this setting is that its maximum delay is just 8 seconds, which can be triggered easily if someone stands close by for a short bit.




To adjust this, you'll need to dive a bit deeper:

a. Open DevTools (google how to do this)

b. Once you've got DevTools open, navigate to the 'Console' tab.

c. Paste the following code into the console and hit Enter:

Code: [Select]
document.querySelector('#remote-config-app > div.config-context-wrap > div > div.config-scroll-box > div > div.alarm-wrap > div.sensitivity-box > div:nth-child( > div > input').max = 300

d. Slide the slider all the way until the end

By doing this, you're extending the alarm delay to 5 minutes (300 seconds), making it much less likely to be triggered accidentally.

Maybe because it's free to maintain, as you don't need to pay a monthly subscription fee?

1. Privacy
2. A device that relies solely on the cloud is dead as soon as that company goes out of business. (Not a rear scenario)
3. Price. Not only are they cheaper in the long run with no cloud based subscription they are lots of times even cheaper upfront.

Specifically about reolink it runs locally with the additional option for remote viewing. It has great person detection and seems to be the best quality in that price range by a long shot. Also great for jews.
