What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Hard to download clips: While we didn’t have a burglary during our testing, thankfully, we did have some clips we wanted to save long-term, mainly of a beautiful rainbow that appeared one spring morning. However, downloading clips was a bit of a hassle, as we could only download them in 30-second bits.
  • Bad for colder climates: If you live in a place that gets under 14 degrees Fahrenheit like us, the Argus 2 isn’t a great option; we took it down in the winter when things got really chilly.
  • No optical zoom: We enjoyed zooming in six times in the Reolink app, but we wish the Argus 2 itself had a mechanism allowing for optical zoom, which would be higher quality.
