This article will show you how to turn on the UID for your camera/NVR.

Applies to: All Reolink cameras/NVRs except for the battery-powered cameras and the cameras in the NVR kit.


  • Reolink Battery-powered cameras could only be accessed via the UID, so it cannot be disabled.
  • The cameras in the NVR Kit don't have the UID, they should work with the NVR for remote access. 
  • Reolink cameras and NVR provide the UID (based on P2P) for remote accessing. The user may enable or disable the UID to control remote accessing. And the UID uses random UDP ports when the cameras or NVRs are connected to the Internet, so please make sure that all the UDP ports of your network are enabled so that the UID can work fine.

Refer below for guides to enable the UID for your devices on a different platform.
