There are several methods to access your Reolink camera remotely, including using the UID, domain name, or IP address. Each method has its own set of steps and requirements, and we will discuss them in detail.
1. Using UID
The UID (unique ID) method is a convenient way to access your Reolink camera remotely. Here are the steps to do so:
- Find the UID of your Reolink camera.

By following these steps, you can easily access your Reolink camera remotely using the UID method.
2. Using Domain Name
Another method to access your Reolink camera remotely is by using a domain name. Here are the steps to do so:
- Make sure that your router has a public IP address, and the NVR/camera is connected to that router.
- Register a DDNS service account.
- Use the domain name to remotely access your Reolink camera/NVR on web browsers.
By following these steps, you can access your Reolink camera remotely using a domain name, which provides a more user-friendly way to connect to your camera from anywhere.
3. Using IP Address
You can also access your Reolink camera remotely using its IP address. Here are the steps to do so:
- Find the public IP camera address (http://wanip:httpport) of your Reolink camera.
- Log into your router to set up the port forwarding rules. Enter the port number and IP camera address as required.
- Use the port forwarding function to forward the camera/NVR port to the WAN network, then login to the camera/NVR via that public IP address directly.
By following these steps, you can access your Reolink camera remotely using its IP address, which provides a direct way to connect to your camera from anywhere.
Accessing Reolink Products via Web Browsers
In addition to the methods mentioned above, you can also access your Reolink products via web browsers, both locally and remotely. Here are the steps to do so:
- Reolink cameras and NVRs can be accessed via web browser locally or remotely.
- For remote access on a different network (WAN), you can follow the guide provided by Reolink to access your products via a web browser.
By following these steps, you can access your Reolink products via web browsers, providing a flexible and convenient way to monitor your property from anywhere.
In conclusion, accessing your Reolink camera remotely is a simple process that can be achieved using the UID, domain name, or IP address methods.
