Reolink Argus Review: Surveillance Camera for Outdoor

At first sight the Argus of Reolink reminds of a big white Tic-Tac. It fits in one hand, is especially light and IP65 waterproof. Reolink is primarily based on wireless and therefore largely self-sufficient operation at Argus, because it is powered by batteries, has its own slot for micro SD cards and connects exclusively via WLAN. There is no connection to the cloud as with the Reolink C1 Pro. The camera is therefore especially designed for local outdoor use.

The Argus wide-angle lens has a fixed focal length of 3.26 millimeters and a viewing angle of 105° horizontal, 55° vertical and 130° diagonal.  The aperture is fixed at F2.2. The 2.9 inch CMOS sensor with its 2.0 megapixels achieves a maximum resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. In infrared mode, the Argus has a range of ten meters.
