Information regarding HomeSeer integrations with Reolink Video Doorbell


Reolink's video doorbell supports RTSP and ONVIF events, making it ideal for integration with HomeSeer.

When integrated, HomeSeer supports locally managed live views and events (auitomations) may be triggered with the following ONVIF events reported by the camera:

  • Motion Detected (Motion)
  • People Detected (PeopleDetect)
  • Doorbell Presses (Visitor)


You'll need the following to integrate the Reolink video doorbell with HomeSeer:


The following steps are required to install and integrate the video doorbell with HomeSeer HS4-powered hubs or systems.

  1. Install the video doorbell and connect it to your home network using WiFi or Ethernet. Refer to the instructions included with your camera for this procedure.
  2. Enable RTSP and ONVIF for your camera. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Open a web browser and enter the IP address of your camera in the address field.
    2. Log into the camera, click the settings gear and click Network settings.
    3. Scroll to the bottom of Network settings, click Advanced and then click on Port Settings.
    4. Scroll Port Settings and enable RTSP and ONVIF
  3. Access your HomeSeer HS4 web interface and navigate to Setup > Cameras. You should see your video doorbell in the Auto Detected Cameras section. Enter the Username (admin) and Password that you created when you added your camera to the Reolink app.
  4. Check the live view of your camera on the HS4 cameras page to make sure your camera view is now visible.
  5. Access your HomeSeer HS4 web interface and install the ONVIF Events plugin. This plugin will create a HomeSeer device to track ONVIF events as features. You'll be able to use the changing status of these features in your automations as event triggers and conditions. Please refer to Setting Up the ONVIF Events Plugin for information on adding the camera's ONVIF events to HS4. When complete, it should look like this (in list view):

    Note: Device features may not appear until motion is sensed or the doorbell button is pressed.
