Let's see how I got mine working.
Installing the Reolink app on your FireTV Stick
The Reolink app is available for Android and iOS devices, and you can install it on your Fire TV Stick as well. You just need to download and install an APK file.
OK. I don't need to get too technical here, so I will just let you know that APK stands for Android Package Kit, and it's the file format that Android uses for its apps, and we will use the same type of file for our Reolink app installation.
Here are the steps to install the Reolink app on your Fire TV Stick.
- Install the Downloader App on your TV Fire Stick;
- Download and install the Reolink App APK;
- Lauch the Reolink App and login to the camera.
Yes, it that simple.
Take a look at the following pictures to see the installation details.
Launch the Downloader App
(If you don't have this App read the article how to download apps on your Fire Stick TV)
Navigate to the APKmirror website
On the left side of the screen, click on "Browser".
Click on the search box and type "https/www.apkmirror.com".
Search for the Reolink App
Once you are on the APK mirror website, search for the Reolink App.
Click the "Next" button to continue.
Click the Reolink app and look for the "Download APK" button.
Pay attention to this part because the site is full of advertisements.
The download button is usually at the bottom of the page.
Just scroll down and look for the button link, the one below.
Install the Reolink App
After clicking the button, the App is downloaded and installed automatically.
Launch the App
You can click the "Open" button or go to the Application menu to launch the App.
Agree with the Terms of Service
Here you need to accept the Terms of services by clicking a button.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to navigate to the button with the Fire TV control.
Login to the camera
Finally, log in to your Reolink camera.
And here you have your Reolink on Fire TV Stick.
Pretty cool, huh?
You can use the Reolink App to connect to the cameras or an NVR.
If you are using an NVR, you will be able to see all of your cameras on the screen.
Advantages of the Reolink app on a Fire TV Stick
OK. You can add your Reolink cameras to Alexa and use a voice command to display them on your TV, right? As you may know, this process is very easy.
So, you may be wondering, "why install the Reolink App to a Fire TV Stick?"
The answer is simple, the video loads fast and doesn't depend on the Internet.
As long as the Reolink cameras are connected to the local WiFi router, they can find them in the local network even without an Internet connection.
If you use the voice command to ask Alexa, it takes around 12s to display the video on the TV, and it can't last longer than 10 minutes on the screen, but this is no longer a limitation when using the Reolink App on Firestick.
Other ways to display Reolink cameras on TV
There are different ways you can see your Reolink cameras on TV.
You can also use an NVR connected to the TV via HDMI.
