Reolink RLC 820a not working



  • I have followed the directions to setup my Reolink with the monocle gateway but my Alexa devices try to connect but responds with “Hmm The camera is not responding.”
    Any help will be greatly apricated, thank you!

  • Not sure you need Monocle for this. I can display 3 x Reolink CAMs (RLC410, RLC511 and RLC423) using the Reolink Alexa skill. I did have to update my firmware in the cameras first. Now shows on Echo Show5, Echo Spot and Echo Show8.
    There is always a 10-12 second delayu before the live image appears.



  • Maybe this will help:

    The final thing that really solidified the stream was naming the camera “Reolink” anywhere a name for the camera was required. I kept the username as “admin” and a simple password that had only letters and numbers. I also gave my camera a static IP address on my router. The Monocle settings are as follows:

    RTSP URL = rtsp://<camera IP address>:554/h264Preview_01_sub
    Authentication = BASIC
    Video Resolution = 640 x 360
    Tags = @tunnel
