[ Feature Requests ] Kasa Software for TP Link Cameras
I am very pleased with my new TP Link Cameras, and would like to purchase more in the future.
After using the Kasa App with the cameras for a few weeks now, and seeing other apps for other brands of camera,
I would like to put in official requests for the app, to hopefully be considered for addition in the future:
1: An optional Date & Time overlay on the video, which could be selected to show in varios areas of the screen (bottom left, top left, bottom right etc etc)
2: The current setting to limit notifications to 5 minutes is too long. In 5 minutes someone could have stolen something and be gone.
This setting needs changing with multiple options, Perhaps a slider or drop down box from 0 to 5 mins with 30 second settings,
so for example: 0, 0:30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2.30 etc etc.
3: An option to take a stil image/snapshot of the video, in the same way there is a button to take a manual video.
4: A 50hz option so you do not get flicker from some LED lights in the UK. (I noticed with with another brand which gave a 60hz and 50hz option)
5: Some control over colour/exposure as the image, whilst very good, can be a little oversaturated.
6: When you get a notification on your mobile, is it possible to have a snapshot image in the norification as you get with Nest Cameras ?
7: An option to use Phone Location to turn on/off your cameras. So you can set it up to turn camera's on when you leave home and off when you are home.
This would need to work in conjunction with the Schedule. Exactly the same way the Google/Nest camera app can do both.
8: Be able to control Camera's within Scenes as you can with the Smart Sockets.
9: Option for a "Dark Mode" for the app, as many apps are now doing, and Android now supports officially.
10: When releasing the UK Cloud service, offer a Home deal, perhaps up to 10 cameras? for a single resonable cost
And not charge per Camera. Google/Nest are about to offer such a cloud plan for unlimited cameras for £50 a year for Event Video History.
It would be nice to see TP Link offer the same to loyal Kasa Cam owners.
Thank you for reading.
I hope these suggestions can be considered.
Also would be nice to hear other forums members views on my list of feature request suggestions :)
