Reolink: 4K Duo 2 WiFi Camera Review

Reolink 4K Duo 2 WiFi Camera Review

Reolink recently released one of their best video surveillance camera models – I’m talking about the Reolink Duo 2 WiFi with an ultra-wide angle. Duo 2 WiFi can stitch two views into one with NO GAP, realizing true two-camera combination and a 180° panorama. The Reolink Duo brings a smoother image, and its double field of view makes it so there are no blind spots in your surveillance coverage. I have reviewed many Reolink video cameras over the years because I consider them the best, not to mention they are one hundred percent compatible with Synology Surveillance Station software. This camera model in particular left me speechless, not only because of its undisputed image quality, with colors comparable to one’s eyesight, but also because of its 180° panorama that ensures optimal video surveillance coverage.
