A Hong Kong-based based company is seeking funding for Reolink Go, a wireless outdoor security camera that has built-in 4G LTE connectivity. The camera is designed for use in places without WiFi access or a power outlet, such as remote locations on a farm, rural homes, and similar. The camera uses a combination of cloud storage and solar charging to bypass traditional limitations.
The camera is fairly typical as far as outdoor security cameras go, the 4G LTE connectivity being the big exception. The company says its camera works with major carriers around the globe, including T-Mobile and AT&T in the US, O2 in the UK and Germany, and more.
Thanks to that connectivity, the user can place the camera somewhere beyond the reach of their WiFi connection…or in a place where no Internet connection is available. The camera itself is powered by a solar charger; its internal battery can hold a charge sufficient enough for up to a month of run time.
The camera is weatherproof, meaning it doesn’t require a separate housing for use outdoors. The camera has 1080p resolution and night vision, as well as a microSD card slot for local storage and support for two-way audio. Users get access to the camera via a mobile app; there’s also the option of setting up email notifications.
On the software side of things, Reolink supports live streaming on both Android and iOS. The camera has Smart Motion Sensing for detecting motion in an intelligent way; it won’t send an alert for every tiny flicker. The company is seeking funding for the product on Indiegogo, where it can be “pre-ordered” at a discounted rate. The eventual MSRP is $250 USD.
