In this article, I show how to reset the Reolink Duo Cameras.
If you lost the camera's password or just need to reset it to start a new configuration from scratch, you are in the right place 😉
I have two Reolink Duo Wi-Fi cameras in my lab, and I tested the procedure before writing this article, so rest assured because this is the real deal.
The process also works with the different Reolink models such as the 4G and PoE.
How to reset the Reolink Duo Cameras
The first thing you need to do to reset your Reolink Duo camera is to find the reset button that is located under the micro SD card slot cover.
Just grab a Phillips screwdriver, open the cover, and you will see the button.
Make sure the camera is connected to the power supply before resetting it.
Here are the steps to reset the camera.
- Open the micro SD card cover
- Insert the reset need into the reset hole
- Press the reset button and hold it for 10 seconds
- Release the button
- Wait until you hear beeps, that sound that reminds a "sonar".
Click the button below to listen to the sound I'm talking about...
It takes some time after releasing the button until you hear the sonar-like sound.
Please just be patient and wait for one to two minutes until the camera reboots.
The camera will reset to the factory default settings and get ready for setup.

The Reolink Duo reset procedure is very simple but sometimes a little bit tricky.
After holding the reset button for 10 seconds, I didn't see any indication that the procedure was successful, so I waited for about two minutes to get the sound confirmation. Make sure you also wait for some time.
If you don't hear any sound, then you might try the reset procedure again.
