I have previously used the excellent Arlo Go, but it has a high initial cost and then a monthly fee.
However, if you are looking for a more affordable option, then Realink could have the perfect solution for you, with the imaginatively named Reolink Go.
Functionally it offers the same sort of features as the Arlo. However, this is one unique feature of the Realink. There is an optional solar panel accessory to keep the batteries going longer. I am not sure how well it charges them, but if you have the camera in a remote place, it could be a great feature.
The press release states:
Reolink expands into the 4G LTE security camera market with its first and groundbreaking 3G/4G LTE-enabled outdoor/indoor security camera – Reolink Go, a 100 percent wire-free 1080p 3G/4G rechargeable battery-powered security camera after a stunning debut at CES 2018 back in January. The Reolink Go will soon hit the global crowdfunding platform Indiegogo in late March with favorable offerings.
The launch of Reolink’s first 3G/4G LTE-supported mobile security camera Reolink Go strengthens its position as a leading provider of home security products and camera solutions. Reolink Go, a 100 percent wire-free mobile HD security camera, operates on nationwide 3G and 4G LTE wireless networks provided by wireless network service providers including (but not limited to) AT&T (U.S.), Telstra (Australia). Thanks to its 4G-LTE/3G network capability, Reolink Go acts as an ideal video monitoring solution for remote locations, especially in areas with limited or no WiFi network like vacation homes, construction sites, boats, docks, marinas, RVs, campsites, farms, stables, ranches, hunting trails, business and more.
The weatherproof Reolink Go is powered by a long-running rechargeable battery (supports up to months of use on one charge) and also supports eco-friendly and constant power charging with an additional Reolink Solar Panel (sold separately). Flexible powering options provide users a wire-free, portable and budget monitoring alternative in places where running wires is impossible, or power outlets are not available.
Reolink Go can be set up in seconds and easily deployed and re-deployed with a simple tap on the mobile apps. It streams and records up to 1080p HD quality day and night, and captures starlight night vision videos (up to 33ft) in low-light environments. With the built-in smart motion sensor, Reolink Go is capable of sensing movement, sending real-time motion alerts to phone and email inboxes, and recording motions to an inserted micro SD card. 2-way audio allows users to listen in and talk back through the mic and speaker, or even use pre-recorded voice message to even warm or scare off potential intruders or invaders.
“Reolink Go will help keep an eye on places with limited or no WiFi and power,” said Reolink Sales Manager Laura, “and launching it on Indiegogo helps bring this awesome product to millions of early adopters.”
