Reolink Duo 3 PoE Review

Reolink Duo 3 PoE Review original

Today I’m excited to review the new Reolink Duo 3 PoE Camera! This is not the first video surveillance camera from Reolink I’ve reviewed and the reason I keep going back to Reolink is because they are one of the best cameras on the market, compatible with Synology Surveillance Station and Synology hardware, and full of exciting features that make video surveillance an inspiring experience. The Duo 3 PoE is an industry first, a 16MP UHD 180° Panorama Camera. The Reolink Duo 3 PoE breaks the mould from the usual dome/bullet-style outdoor security cameras. Its tough casing, sharp edges, and black/white color scheme result in a uniquely modern-looking camera that intrigues and appeals.
