ReoLink GO Solar Powered Camera Review
What We Like
- Beautiful image: The 1080p HD camera quality and night vision were truly incredible. Our footage was clear and crisp each time we viewed our live feed.
- Large storage: The ReoLink GO had multiple storage options, including an optional micro-SD card that held up to 64 GB of footage and the free ReoLink cloud with another 1 GB of footage. We never worried about storage space while using the ReoLink GO.
- Durability: We don’t exaggerate when we tell you that the ReoLink GO is durable. It could withstand mild water pressure and function as if nothing happened. For outdoor use, this was a great feature.
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.
