TP-Link Features Tapo Smart Home Products

TP-Link recently announced a range of smart, secure home devices under the Tapo brand that includes HomeKit-enabled smart lights, plugs, smart switches, and a few more IoT-enabled consumer appliances.

Along with these high-tech appliances, TP-Link also announced four Tapo-cloud-enabled security cameras. A few of these WiFi cameras support microSD cards for recording the video feed. The new Tapo C220 Pan and Tilt Camera is the first in this series. When required, this camera hides the lens in a physical frame, ensuring complete privacy. The associated app allows users to control the process remotely.

It functions as a fully-featured 2K QHD pan and tilt camera in standard mode, with up to 110 degrees per second pan and tilt for better motion tracking. The product also uses built-in AI algorithms for person detection, vehicle detection, pet detection, etc.
