Anyone know if this camera works with ZoneMinder?

The camera is new, good and not to expansive.

thanks for info

I really would like to know as well.
I happened to buy one, only to realize Reolink clearly states that it only works with a Reolink NVR.
I guess it doesn’t follow standards then...

I'm looking into this as well.
The "official" answer is for all Reolink cameras https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/ar ... Party-NVRs
It's not suggested to add Reolink IP cameras to other brands of NVRs.

There could be some compatibility problems when Reolink cameras work with 3rd-party NVRs. Different manufacturers may use different protocols, so we couldn't test all NVR models from other brands and guarantee their compatibility.

We recommend that you should choose Reolink NVRs when using Reolink IP cameras.
Also check out https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/ar ... dia-Player
All Reolink cameras (except the battery-powered ones) support RTSP streaming via 3-party Media Player.
:!: :!: :!: Applies to: All Reolink cameras except B800 and the battery-powered camera. :!: :!: :!:
So the answer to OP question is certainly not a clear Yes. According to the manufacturer's support pages, it doesn't even work with VLC. So the answer to the OP question is most likely a No.

So I'm not placing my order for a bunch of these cameras. Unless Reolink confirms it works with Zoneminder.
