Home Mounts and Tripods for the Reolink Keen Wireless Camera

The Reolink Keen is a wireless pan and tilt camera.  No power cables here.  It’s fully battery operated.  That leads us to some interesting mounting potential with this camera.  Not being constrained by the need to mount it close to an A/C outlet means these be mounted in a lot of places.  Just be sure it’s indoors though as the Reolink Keen is not waterproof. Like most pan and tilt cameras, the Reolink Keen is a large camera.  Not surprising.  A pan and tilt camera is always larger than a stationary lens variety.  The camera measures almost 5 inches high by … Read more
