Connect Reolink camera to homey

I have a bought a Reolink NVR with camera’s system. This seemed to have a nice app integration with also Google home. Unfortunately when I tried to set it up in Google home, I found that my type camera’s cannot be added to Google home. Big bummer, so no casting to the best hub.

Now I’m trying to connect it to homey with the onvif app. It finds the camera and connects. However, I cannot get snapshots. Any advice what to try?

I’m thinking to return the whole system and investigate a bit more in a good compatible brand.

My goal in the end is that when the doorbell rings, my camera sends a snapshot to my phone, and also casts the video feed to my nest hub.

Make sure the port is 8000, then it will work.

That’s what I had, but did not work. Due to the bad compatibility I decided to return it to Amazon.

Any suggestions for camera/NVR brands that have good integration in Google home and Homey?

Hi @Joram ,

What NVR did you choose after all? Or did someone get it to work with a reolink NVR?


I returned the Reolink and installed my old Foscam NVR. Currently my NVR is not connected to Homey or another domotics system. Still not planned to what system I will upgrade.
