To add Reolink cameras or NVRs to Reolink App, please refer to the instructions below.
Applies to: All Reolink cameras and NVRs
For cameras or NVRs that are not set up yet, please finish the initial setup first.
For cameras or NVRs that have been set up, there are 3 methods to add them to Reolink App.
Here is a video for your reference:
Method 1. Add by using add devices automatically
By default, the Reolink App has the add devices automatically option enabled. With this function, Reolink cameras or NVRs that are connected to the same local network as your phone is will be detected and added to the App automatically.
Please check the device list on the Reolink App to see if your camera or NVR is added. If yes, you may need to enter the login password if the device has been set up.
When the add devices automatically option is disabled, you can still add a Reolink camera or NVR in the same network by searching in LAN. Tap the "+" option in the top-right corner of the home page, then choose LAN to proceed.
Method 2. Add by scanning the QR code of the Reolink device
If the Reolink device is not added automatically nor can it be found in LAN, we may add it by scanning the QR code.
Please launch the Reolink App, tap the "+" button in the top-right corner, and scan the QR code on the camera or NVR. (For NVR Kit, we only need to scan the QR code on the NVR box to add the whole system to the App.)
If the QR code sticker on the device is lost or blurry, you can still add it by manually entering the UID numbers.
In this case, please tap input UID/IP under the scan window, choose UID, enter the UID of the camera/NVR and tap Next to proceed.
Method 3. Add by entering IP address of the Reolink device
Knowing the IP address of the camera or NVR, we can also add it by manually entering the IP address.
In this case, please tap input UID/IP under the scan window, choose IP, enter the IP address of the camera/NVR and tap Next to proceed.
