How does that work?
I thought that. People say without a sub its very basic. Read the Amazon reviews and you will see.How does that work?
We don't pay the subscription either, but when I go into the history it doesn't let me view or download any of the stored events. It tells me I need a subscription to be able to do this in future.
Yep, i've got pretty much all Tapo stuff with it all being integrated into the one app (have some smart home stuff as well). I've actually got their door bell, picture quality is second to none (2k) and like you said its all being stored locally. (Came with a storage device too, just need a micro SD card) ... Its probably bigger than the ring doorbell so will put some people off but I prefer the wireless setup of all Tapo devices
You're bang on. For the day to day they've clearly focused on the end user experience and making it as accessible as possible and they succeed in every way. I'm looking to finally setup a wifi mesh round the house and I know their deco products get a good review but may cast my looks further a field when it comes to this.I've been impressed with all of the Tapo kit I've got (camera, light bulbs, sensors, smart switches). It's clearly consumer grade but remarkable functionality for the price. TP Link used to be confusing as they had the Kasa and Tapo lines which worked separately but now they can both be managed with the same app.
I am looking into getting one. Whenever someone knocks on my door I don’t hear it cos it’s essentially a porch door they knock on. A ring would eliminate the need for them to knock on the windowGot one last year and very handy.
I get an alert whenever someone is near our front door. I paid for the sub which gives you access to recordings it has taken in the past. I tend to review any every few days and delete out what I don't need to keep. It doesn't record continuously, it only kicks when there is movement or you can connect to it live anytime you like.
I'm thinking about getting a second one for the back of the house.
I've had the odd connectivity issue when the video isn't available but it generally works well. Handy if we are away and you can see what's going on around or house. I have a couple of smart plugs so can switch lights on and off inside the house using Alexa.
I'm like Joe 90
I have a little Echo thing on my desk and the doorbell went earlier when I was in the middle of something. Just a delivery driver trying to drop off a neighbour's parcel so I ignored them and they went next door.Got one in summer with a echo screen thing. Spot on.
Forgot to mention. Added bonus - you can hear them on the phone app too AND you can talk back live.I bought 2 of these the other day for £130
Amazon.co.uk eufy Security S220 SoloCam Solar Security Camera Outdoor Wireless, Continuous Power, 2K Resolution Home Security Camera, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, No Monthly Fee
Built in solar panel with a battery that apparently lasts 3 months anyway.
So zero wires to install. Just screw the backing plate to where you want to install and then push it all in. Took me half and hour, and 20 minutes of that was checking there was enough Wifi strength to make them work.
So far so good
