Synology How to Activate Reolink Camera Color at Night

Did you know you can activate color vision at night for Reolink cameras by removing the black and white night view? The Reolink RLC-511WA as well as other Reolink camera models come with an Infrared feature providing clear night vision up to a distance of 30 meters. But if you want to, you can deactivate the infrared vision at night and use the color view instead. This can prove to be useful if, for example, your garden, home or street has excellent artificial lighting. In today’s article I will teach you how to activate Reolink camera color vision at night.
