If you want to find a comparison between reolink and lorex cameras, of course you understand that nearly most reolink camera products are sold cheaper than lorex cameras.
Is it true that the quality of reolink cameras is lower than that of lorex so that they are sold cheaper?
Of course this is not always the case, because customers are more critical of the cameras they buy at higher prices, so when they are less satisfied with the camera then they provide unfavorable testimony. And vice versa if the camera purchased is cheaper, it tends to give good 5 star testimonials when satisfied with quality comparable to the price they pay.
Lorex vs Reolink
Now we will see a comparison of the two reolink and lorex products, and here we limit the comparison of security cameras which are arguably a good class from each vendor for dome, bullet, and PTZ cameras models.
Compared to lorex, Reolink offers fewer product variations. We take a featured product from Reolink to be compared with one of the lorex products which spec and features are closest as a reference to help you to choose with the existing price difference.
The comparison we present here is only limited to the main features, not in detail. For spec details you can follow the provided product link with a link to buy on Amazon at the latest prices.
Reolink vs Lorex Dome camera
Until now reolink has not produced dome cameras with 4k resolution, so we take one of the reolink dome products with 5mp resolution, namely Reolink rlc-422. For comparison reolink vs lorex, we take one of lorex new series – lorex lnd3374sb.
Frame per second
You may pay attention to the resolution and the frame per second (fps), see that with the same @30fps reolink is superior than lorex. And in addition, the optical zoom is also different.

Reolink vs Lorex bullet camera
For the bullet camera model, we take the latest product from Reolink with 4k resolution, which is lorex b800. And for lorex it will be a little bit difficult to find an equivalent considering so many 4k products with bullet models. For that’ why we take the most adequate one, lorex lnb8111, or maybe another one of the new models is lorex lnb9232s.
Take a look at the following lorex vs reolink comparison table. If we compare with lnb8111, the reolink b800 spec is almost close to reolink with slightly faster fps. We try to compare it with lnb9232 which has a higher fps spec than Reolink and see how much the price difference is.
Long range night vision
One thing that lorex is superior here is long range night vision and in color, not in black and white like night vision cameras in general. But you still need ambient lights within the frame.

Reolink vs lorex ptz camera
For reolink with PTZ camera model that we can get is reolink rlc-423 which is the POE wired-connection version, there is also a wifi version which is reolink RLC-423WS. What about the ptz camera model at Lorex side? We take one of the newly released products, namely lorex lnz44p4bw ptz camera.
With $50 price different, what you’ll get here. Lorex looks more superior than reolink, see that resolution is 4mp @30fps real time speed, color night vision, and vandal resistant. however, reolink comes with built-in audio.

Reolink vs Lorex wifi camera
Lorex does not have many high-resolution wifi camera collections as I would like to compare it with reolink RLC-511W. For that reason I don’t take rlc-511 but I take a new wifi camera product from Reolink that will be released soon, namely RLC-211W. While for lorex, I also take a new wifi camera product LW4211 which has already been released on the market.
And note that lorex vs reolink wifi camera here is physically nearly the same.

|Lens||½.7Inch 4.0mm CMOS sensor||½.7 inch 2.8 mm color CMOS|
|Field of view angle||85 degree||118 degree|

Probably reolink would like to compete lw4211 with RLC-211W. And indeed both are not IP cameras but analogs, lorex lw4211 comes with the transceiver unit where the transceiver needs to be connected to the DVR unit with a coaxial cable. While reolink rlw-211w camera can only work with RLK4-211WB4-S system that will coming soon too.
