Reolink passes its crowdfunding goal for Arlo Go competitor 4G camera

Reolink, crowdfunding champion, try again, this time with Reolink Go, a security camera that uses a 4G LTE signal instead of Wi-Fi.

At the time of writing, the camera exceeds 150% of its funding objective. with a month on the clock. This is the third successful crowdfunding effort of the company, following the Argus and Argus 2 security cameras.

We can not say why, but this campaign is a bit more like a marketing gimmick than the two previous presentations. Maybe it's because the camera is very similar to Arlo Go (even with the same name), but given the quality of the Argus, we hope that Reolink can offer a good product.

Solid specifications [19659005] The camera itself seems like it's going to be a great piece of kit if Reolink can keep its promises. The camera can give in a constant flow of energy from a solar panel or refill its rechargeable batteries every two months.

Now, that's not a one-year claim like Eufy's current crowdfunding security camera, but two months is not terrible. The camera is packed with features, with 1080p footage, motion sensors, bidirectional audio and night vision.

Reolink Go offers a wider range of suppliers than Arlo's offer now, and is currently also cheaper, entering $ 250 (around £ 180, AU $ 330), with early discounts available if you get it of the Indiegogo page.

One of the main problems we had with the Arlo Go when we reviewed it was the dependence of a good LTE signal. Allowing you to choose from a wider range of providers could help with this problem, as you can tailor your package to any provider that has the best coverage in your area.
