Applies to: Reolink cameras (except for the cameras that don't support web UI, such as Reolink battery-powered cameras, Reolink E1, E1 pro, Reolink Lumus ).
You may follow the steps below to remotely access Reolink cameras via a web browser.
For Reolink battery-powered cameras (such as Argus 2), the web browser remote access is currently unavailable in order to save battery life.
Step 1. Find the IP address of your cameras.
Note: If you reboot your router or your device has been off-line for too long, the IP address of your device may change and the port that you forward may become invalid. To avoid the problem, you may assign a static IP address for your device or use Dynamic DNS to access your device.
Step 2. Log on to your router and forward ports for your cameras.
- For IP cameras, forward the HTTP(HTTPS) Port and the RTMP Port on your router.
- If you want to access more than one camera via the web browser, make sure the ports you set for the cameras are different. Or there is port conflict and it won't work properly after the port forwarding. So please make sure the HTTP port, RTMP port you set for all your cameras are different.
Step 3. Input the URL into the web browser and log in to view the security camera live.
The URL should be IPv4 Address: HTTP Port
For example, if your IPv4 Address is 126.96.36.199, the HTTP Port is 805,
then the URL should be http://188.8.131.52:805
1. If you don’t know your IPv4 Address, check it by connecting your computer to the same router your camera is on, and visiting www.whatismyipaddress.com
You may also use Reolink Client or Reolink App for easier remote access and view of the Reolink cameras. See details by visiting the following knowledgebase articles:
