The Reolink Go does not include a power button that may turn it on or off. However, there is indeed a PIR button in the Reolink app that you may use to activate or deactivate the camera’s working or standby mode. Devices in standby mode, or “sleep mode,” use very little power when in this state.

How Do I Turn Off Reolink NVR?

Specialized computer systems, such as network video recorders (NVRs), comprise software programs that record video to disk drives, USB flash drives, SD memory cards or other bulk storage devices in digital format. 

There is no separate video capturing hardware in a network video recorder (NVR). Generally running an embedded operating system, a specialized device is used to execute the program. 

Standard operating systems, processors, and video management software may also be employed to offer greater functionality and serviceability. 

IP video surveillance systems often use NVRs. When using Reolink surveillance camera systems, you have complete control over all cameras linked to the NVR:

  • When you connect your camera to an NVR, you may configure it to record 24 hours a day.
  • Viewing many cameras on one screen is possible, as is rearranging the order in which they appear on the screen.
  • It’s possible to configure your camera to record just when motion is detected, and you may do this by scheduling the camera’s motion detection timer.
  • Reolink NVR allows you to listen to recordings that you’ve recorded.
  • Reolink cameras attached to the Reolink NVR may also be backed up and downloaded.
  • You can allow many users to use the device, each with its permissions.
  • The NVR’s storage capacity may be increased to match your needs.

RLN16-410, RLN8-410, and RLN4-211W and RLN4-210W are PoE NVRs from Reolink. Reolink’s official website does not sell wifi NVRs. However, you may buy a PoE NVR by clicking Reolink’s official site.

Turn Off Reolink NVR:

Go to the Menu-> Shutdown page of your PoE NVR and press one of the three buttons there to shut it off.


Log out or reset the machine by clicking Shutdown/Reboot and OK.


Once the device is locked, you must enter the password you used to log in to the system to get back in.

For Wifi NVRS From Reolink: 


When you wish to log out or reboot this computer, select Shutdown/Reboot and click OK to proceed.


To log in again once you’ve locked your account, you’ll need to enter the password you’ve set up. 

How Do I Turn Off The Blue Light On My Reolink?

A built-in status LED near the lens will light up if the security camera is linked to a reliable network. If you are using the Reolink app, follow the below procedures to switch it on or off.

  • Take a look at your camera’s advanced settings.
  • To activate or deactivate the status LED, choose Status LED and hit the button.
  • Error Establishing LAN Connection For Reolink Lumus:
  • The following are probable reasons for your reference if you successfully connected the video to your router but could not access the camera from your computer or phone on LAN (when the phone or computer is linked to the same networks as the camera).

Without Power, The Camera Won’t Work:

Check the LED light on the camera’s front to see whether it’s on or off. If it doesn’t work, please try a different outlet.

When Connected To wifi, The Camera Stops Working:

Ensure your router is nearby and reset both the camera and the router to check if the camera can reconnect to wifi. If it doesn’t work, try resetting the camera and starting over: Instructions for Resetting a Reolink Lumus Device

Weak wifi Signals: 

This signifies that the camera is still linked to wifi if the network light on the front of the camera remains blue. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind:

  • Try connecting the camera in Fluent mode: Live Stream Mode may be changed on the Reolink App. Modify the Reolink Client’s Live Streaming Mode (New Client)
  • The camera and router should be rebooted at the same time.
  • Increase the distance between the camera and the router.
  • A wifi Channel may be changed (channels 1,9,13 are recommended).
  • The wifi should be turned off for other devices
  • The Reolink Client/App could not connect to the camera due to specific settings.

Make sure your phone/PC isn’t connected to a VPN before using the camera again if the camera’s state light is solid blue. The firewall software parameters should also be checked.

To set up your computer’s firewall, see How to Let Reolink Client Pass Through the Firewall on One’s PC. As for the device, most phones do not have a firewall installed. 

If your phone does, allow Reolink App to flow past the firewall. You should disable your phone’s or PC’s antivirus program.

How Do I Turn Off The Light On My Reolink Camera?

  • Go to the Settings ->Camera ->Audio and Light tab after logging in to your smartphone.
  • If you want the IR lights to turn on periodically at night, please choose Auto; otherwise, please select Stay Off to turn them off.

How To Turn Off Reolink Argus 2?

The Argus 2 had a pill-like appearance with a bright white finish. We could immediately see how well built the video was, so learning that it had an IP rating of 65—the highest possible—did not come as a surprise. 

The camera only operates in temperatures between 14 to 131 ℉, which would have been ideal for all seasons. 

Brooklyn seldom reaches beyond 100 degrees during the summer months, and as such, the Argus 2 is a better choice for someone who lives in a hotter region. 

The Argus 2 is wireless and rechargeable, but we enjoyed that we could recharge this while the battery was still attached, so there was never any downtime.

For those who are environmentally conscious, a solar panel might be added to the camera so that it can charge at all times. Also included were wall and tree mounts and weather-resistant skins when the Argus 2 was not in use. With the tree mount, we had fun mounting the camera outdoors. 

We are not accustomed to receiving so many mounts when purchasing security cameras, so Reolink was kind. Climbing a tree brought back happy memories of our youth.

Steps To Turn Off: 

  • The Argus 2 and Argus pro don’t have an on/off button, just on the camera body. When using Reolink’s app, you may activate or disable the PIR button to switch between working mode and standby mode by pressing a button just on the Reolink app.
  • Reolink Argus 2/Argus Pro may also be turned down entirely by removing the battery from the device.


If you’re on a budget, Reolink has some of the finest mid-priced security cameras on the market and the best solar-powered cameras. 

We are making that Reolink’s extensive camera line is not just a marketing ploy. They can upset the likes of Arlo, Ring, and Nest with their brand.
