You can connect it to Reolink PoE NVR in an indirect way. You can follow these steps to connect them:

Step 2. Connect the NVR to the same router by a network cable.
The NVR will pick up all the cameras/video doorbells on the same network.
Does this doorbell use the same app for remote access as other Reolink products?
Yes. You can check your Reolink Video Doorbell PoE at the same Reolink App as other Reolink products.
Where should I place Reolink Video Doorbell WiFi?
You can place the doorbell camera on the entry points of your property such as your front door, and you are recommended to mount it 1.2m high off the ground. A 15° wedge is contained to help set up the right angle or alter the angle.
Does the video doorbell support 24/7 recording?Yes, you can set Reolink Video Doorbell PoE to record 24/7 continuously to a micro SD card (not included) or an NVR. Or you can set it to record only when a person/motion is detected during the scheduled time periods.
Does Reolink Video Doorbell WiFi use batteries?
No, it is hardwired. You need to power it via a power adapter, or via the pre-existing doorbell wiring (12-24V AC; 24V DC).
Can I control the volume of the Chime?
Yes, you can control the volume of the Chime by pressing its button. Initially, the volume goes up when you press the button. After the volume reaches the highest, it goes down if you keep pressing the button.
Please note that the settings of the Chime can only be done locally; you can NOT control the Chime via App or Client.
Can I use the Reolink Video Doorbell WiFi offline?
Yes. Without the Internet connection, the doorbell camera can still detect motion/person and record videos on the SD card (purchased separately). But it cannot send alerts to your mobile devices and you cannot live view it.
If the chime is connected to the doorbell, it will chime when the doorbell is pressed, regardless of the Internet connection.
