What camera model is that with a siren?
That’s something I could use


The siren is loud enough to wake you up and the AI makes sure it is only a human that wakes you up , i have not had a false alarm in the month + i have installed it .

I just searched for Reolink 510 on Amazon and it was the first result. Also a sponsored result so probably Amazon themselves.
Reolink ships directly to South Africa, I bought a few from them directly using Capitec

Yes but only via post office and not large systems anymore.

Reolink support advised that they may resume deliveries via DHL in July.

Hope so. The RLC811A arrived but another 3 cameras ordered this month departed 15 June via 4PX so guess have to wait for 3 months.

E.g. RLC 510.

This camera is $65.25 on Reolink with free shipping, that is R1042 currently. And then roughly R90 customs.

On Amazon this is R763 plus R457 shipping, so R1220. No extra fees.

The Roughly R100 more might be worth it to make sure it is with you in less than 2 weeks and won't go missing at the Post Office.
I got free shipping with courier (no PO) direct from Reolink. Took like 2 weeks. Not sure if they still do that? I know free shipping is for orders over an amount

I went and bought the 5MP Reolink E1 Zoom, it's a joke lol.

I maintain it's not the same as Hikvision, Uniview, heck even Xiaomi is 10-fold better quality.

I love the RLC811A. 810A also good.

The 410As are fine depending on use.

But personally happy. The Argus 2 being wireless should only be an option if no POE available.

The reolink vs xyz debate is like

Mercedes vs Volkswagen debate. Price vs performance and value for money.

I am happy with my Reolinks, especially the 811A.
