    In this video, I unbox, setup, and give you a quick look at the new Reolink Go wireless 4G security camera in action.
    After I use it for a few weeks, I'll be back with an in-depth review.



    This rechargeable battery operated camera is designed to go almost anywhere and report back video and audio via the 4G cellular networks. Looks like a great gadget for RVers to help with campsite/boondocking/RV storage security. Or, catch wildlife clips as an easy to use the game cam.

    I also show the optional Reolink solar panel which will keep the Reolink Go powered up pretty well indefinitely.

    "Reolink Go, a 100% wire-free free HD security camera, operates on 4G-LTE and 3G networks. An ideal video monitoring solution with no cords, no wiring hassles, when in areas with limited or no WiFi access, no electrical power source!

    Portable and weatherproof! Install or take Reolink Go just about anywhere, indoors and outdoors. In your vacation home, construction site, campsite, in the wild, etc."

    I am interested to see your long term update as well as more clarification on how it functions. Having another cell plan isn't appealing though. Curious about data consumption and how files are stored past the 32gig card. Does it report to the cloud in the event someone just steals the camera?

    Always enjoy watching your reviews of new products Ray. :)

    Thanks Greg.
    Most folks would go for a WiFi-based camera but if no WiFi this is an interesting setup.
    I believe it will overwrite old data on the card in a loop. Overall I see the product as a niche thing due to the expense of data here in Canada, we have terribly high rates for data only plans, like $20-30 a gig.
    The company figures about 1 gig a month if you are briefly checking it a few times a day, but if one was to stream its max resolution of 1080P for long periods it would really eat data. The camera settings allow resolution adjustment to reduce data use.
    But its sold around the world and many have cheap data so not as big a deal in many places.
    The cloud service can be turned on or off. They have a free level and then paid levels. https://cloud.reolink.com/ I have it off right now as it would blow through my data, but will test it.

    In this second video, I provide a detailed view of the free smartphone app that mates with the Reolink Go camera via a 4G cellular plan. I go through the various control, display and settings screens.

    The video ends with some examples of footage I recorded in various lighting conditions, my Reolink Cloud Storage page and my main pros and cons.



    Pros:
    Excellent Battery Life
    Clear 1080P Resolution
    Good Color and Low Light Video
    Intuitive App - Easy to Navigate
    Push Notifications
    Cloud Storage
    Easy to Zoom in On Picture

    Cons:
    Don't like the Round Case Design
    No WiFi Access
    Can be Expensive to Use
    Cell Connection Sometimes Can Lag
    Sound Weak
    Email - Insecure App Warning from Gmail

    Overall I give the Reolink Go a thumbs up. If you really need to keep an eye on something and only have cell coverage to do it with, this camera is a good option. I'll be using it this winter as security for my off-grid boondocking campsite when I'm away or off hiking. https://www.loveyourrv.com/rv-security-camera-review-reolink-go-4g-lte/
