If you don't want others to see some areas on your camera's image, you may draw privacy masks to cover those areas. Here are instructions on how to set up privacy masks for your camera via Reolink NVRs (with a monitor connected).

Applies to: All Reolink NVRs and all Reolink cameras except battery-powered cameras.

Step 1. Log in to your camera on the NVR monitor and enter the Live View page. Then go to Settings > Camera > Display.



Step 2. Click Privacy Mask Settings. Press down the left mouse button and drag the mouse to draw a rectangle over the area you want to cover. Click Apply to save the settings.
