The Argus 4 Pro color night vision camera is here and it’s just great

I’ve had the pleasure of playing with the 4K Argus 4 Pro color night vision camera for a few weeks at this point and it is hands down the best night vision I have ever seen, but besides that it’s everything I’ve wanted in a solar/battery camera for years.

Traditionally Wi-Fi/battery cameras I’ve so far tried, you’re tied into either a cloud service or local recording only. The Argus 4 Pro lets you use a NAS, SD card, FTP, and an Reolink Home Hub. I’ve currently got mine recording to SD and an FTP.

The unit connects via Wi-Fi 6 and can be powered by a solar panel and the battery or via USB-C power. I was using the solar panel until last week and it had no issues keeping the unit at 100% ever time I checked.

It’s got 180 degree video from two cameras stitched together extremely well (until your face is right on the camera and then you’ll see in video 3) and it just seems to work.

I should probably preface the videos below with there is no spotlight. That’s over light saturated front and center tree, two areas of light on the ground from other sources, but it’s dark when viewed.

11am you get to see the video weirdness when you deal with 2 cameras stitching together video

I am re-mounting the camera in the front of my house as soon as I can figure out where to place the solar panel to try and catch some of the neighborhood weirdness, and I am taking requests for challenges against this camera which I will post here.

My Argus 4 Pro survived two rather major storms / getting blown off the shelter where I had placed it (without using mounting hardware) and a bird deciding it was a fine couch.

I’m not sure if the distance relays from the videos very well, but the house on the right in the middle of it is where my Wi-Fi is located and the Reolink Argus 4 Pro never seemed to have any issues being near the back of the yard.

From Reolink’s website – lines up pretty much with what I am seeing in my back yard except there is no pool.

Night coloring of faces is not perfect, but it’s so much better than any IR camera I’ve seen. And the ability to see people and things in other people’s yards without a spotlight being turned on is insane (also a reason I don’t have a lot of video to share, I need to point it elsewhere.)

There’s a launch day special going on at the moment where the camera and setup I received is $179 USD, which appears $20 off. My email says the base price is $239 so not entirely sure what’s going on there but it’s worth it at either price. The price is going to be whatever the link says.

You can grab the Reolink Argus 4 Pro at Reolink, Amazon, and wherever fine solar/battery color 4K night vision cameras are sold.

I didn’t catch anything interesting on video during testing, wish I could have caught a deer, burglar, or some such. I will be doing more testing with this as the camera is getting put into permanent rotation if it can handle the rigors of constantly being triggered out front.
