What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No way to change to Wi-Fi: If our cabin happened to get fiber-optic Internet, there would be no way to switch over. The camera only worked on 4G LTE or 3G cellular networks.
  • Comparatively high price: Other solar panel powered cameras typically do not cost as much as the $259.99 ReoLink GO solar-powered camera. For example, the Ring Stick Up Cam Solar, a similar outdoor camera, costs $148.99, over $100 less. However, it requires Wi-Fi or cellular backup to function, unlike the GO.
  • No smart attachments: Though the app was great to view footage, there was no option to connect to any smart platforms, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
