So I can find this if I forget.

Reolink IPCamera Image Tile

The HTTP Image URL should be:

http://(ip address)/cgi-bin/api.cgi?cmd=Snap&channel=0&rs=(any combination of numbers and letters)&user=(user name)&password=(user password)

For example, if your Reolink camera's IP address is, the username is admin and the password is 123456, then the URL should be:

Applies to: All Reolink IP cameras (except: B800, Reolink battery-powered cameras, Reolink E1, and Reolink E1 pro).


Thanks for posting this. I plan to get a few Reolink cams this summer, so this will come in handy.

if you don't mind spending a little coin (~$70), I am interfacing with Blue Iris and it is working great.

Why not the battery powered cameras? I was looking to buy the Argus - or the Argus Pro...


Probably Reolink wanted to minimize battery failures. Allowing access outside their control would introduce variables that could severely impact their bottom-line.

Same but different rationale for the E1 and E1 pro, limiting access to cloud based cameras is the business plan. Although I did read something about the E1 pro being accessible via Blue Iris, so it might now work with this HTTP Image URL.

Thanks Ranchitat :slight_smile:

Meanwhile I found this article which is pretty much in line w. what you said:


I have four Reolink cameras on my house and they are all POE. I use QVR Pro to record them and Monocle Gateway to view them on my Echo Show's and my Fire TV 4k Sticks. They are great quality and infinitely reliable. Lately I have used the technique listed above to create HE dashboards of the four cameras and I have voice commands to display them in a quad format on my Google Chromecast Ultra using the CATT Director App. I also use Fully Kiosk Director to voice command the same quad camera display over to my wall mounted tablet running the Fully Kiosk Web Browser in android.


hi there, just wanted to confirm the original listed URL in this thread works fine with the E1 Zoom (on camera firmware 20121108).
thanks guys
