Some time ago we already had the opportunity to test the Reolink Argus 3 security camera and this time we have an updated version of it on the table. The model in question is the Reolink Argus 3 Pro, and the Pro comes for several reasons that we will show below.
The first and most prominent that you can even see in the box is that this new Reolink Argus 3 Pro adds 4MP in-camera, offering incredibly sharp and vivid colors and image details both day and night in HD 2K 2560 x 1440 quality. The main improvement is undoubtedly the lens itself and thanks to its spotlights and the CMOS sensor that adds in the Argus 3 Pro the image quality improves a lot compared to the previous version.

2K image quality, people and vehicle detection, night vision and more
The main virtues of this new Reolink camera are undoubtedly the improvements in image quality. Now with this new modification to the camera lens it is possible to go from Full HD 1080p to super HD 2K (4MP). This means that when you have to see the images on your device, the quality will be really better than in the previous version. There is no doubt that for a 1080p security camera we can have enough, in this case we go one step further.
The detection of objects or people is another of the great virtues of this Reolink camera. The configuration options are many and in this case can recognize objects Before they get too close All of this can be configured from the Reolink app, which is available for Mac, iOS and Android.
As for the night, do not fear him with this camera since adds night vision with 2 built-in bulbs from Argus 3 Pro which makes the darkest night not a problem. In this sense the sensor is really good and the images shown in both the previous version of the Argus and this one are perfect.
Support for dual band Wi-Fi
In this case the Argus 3 Pro adds the option to connect to the 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands so you will not have connection problems with it. The truth is that to connect it at the beginning it is always better to use the 2.4 bands but in this case we can use both.
We in use if we notice that the 5GHz band can be somewhat more unstable at the time of connectionIn addition, in some cases it shows us a low signal and the viewing of the images slows down. In any case, it is not completely lost and it is also true that the camera is far from the router and this can be a condition to take into account. The router has to be powerful, but this is like everything that is connected to Wi-Fi, which depends on the router more than on the device itself.

Solar powered rechargeable battery
If we talk about autonomy this security camera Holds according to the manufacturer between 2 and 6 months after a full charge has been made. We have the solar panel that offers a constant charge and therefore we cannot confirm the great autonomy that this Reolink claims to have. The fact is that it is very worth buying the Reolink Solar panel since it offers us unlimited autonomy in this spectacular camera.
To charge the battery without the solar panel You need a 5V / 2A power adapter that is not included in the box, what is added is the microUSB cable From the firm itself they recommend using the solar charging panel and it is really a very good option for the Camera battery never runs out. It is not mandatory to buy this solar panel for the correct operation of the camera.
Simple installation and iP65 resistance
Installation of the Reolink Argus 3 Pro camera is just as simple as the previous model. Add the option of making holes in the wall and place the screws in the bracket to adjust the camera to our liking or the option of using a tape to hold it without drilling holes. Of course, we need to have a tree, lamppost, fence or similar to be able to use it.
In any case and personally speaking I like to have a strong hold and the best option always goes through the screws in the wall. With two holes it is enough and the camera will be really safe. In addition, a template is added for its placement and it is very easy to install.
