I need this function aswell. It is vital to get email notification with option to add image of the movement detected. Completely useless without this function.

@Brook I recently purchased a C200 camera and I have been looking everywhere to activate the "send a snapshot" feature via the app when I'm away. I was very disappointed to learn via this forum that this feature does not exist, and that you haven't planned adding it. I still have 20 days to return the 3 cams I purchased, which I will do unless the snapshot feature is confirmed to be added to the Tapo app.

I just bought a C310, same massive flaw. A security camera with no ability to load footage/photos to cloud or/and email. Even the cheapest most awful ip cameras have this feature. Do not buy if you want proper security

I recently bought a Tapo C200 TP-link camera and I found out too late that it is useless because of this fact: it cannot send, record, on the phone, a single proof with the image of the one who triggered the alarm. 
From the application settings, I can decide whether to record the image in continuous stream or only in motion, stored in SD-card. When I view the image following an alarm message and decide to press the record button or picture, I am shocked to find that they are also recorded on the SD card, not on the phone. This turns this camcorder into a completely useless thing.
I hope you can correct this negative aspect as soon as possible.

Sorry, I know is an old thread but IT IS RIDICULOUS that a camera that sends signal over cloud -yes, it does stream that way- and also does push notifications in an APP can't send an email. The embedded linux it is using has, aside from the IPTV which is pretty robust already, a SOAP service, so an SMTP service its probably built in. Also, every freaking linux distribution has cURL in it, which can be easily used to send emails. Please don't make people hack this device (which can show more in deep security issues you won't like) just to make it do its job. It is AMAZING how easily an email function can be implemented (I'll do it for free if you want), or even a little FTP service to make it upload the image files resulting from a motion event, but man, this is crazy. I just bought it yesterday and I'm so pissed off about this. I'm going to disassemble it this week and hope that it has an UART port. 

 

For people to understand how difficult is to send an email using cURL which I'm 99.9% sure it is already built in the camera, this is the code, it just needs to use the trigger for the event (which is coded already for the push notification) and... bam.

 

curl --ssl-reqd \
  --url 'smtps://smtp.gmail.com:465' \
  --user 'username@gmail.com:password' \
  --mail-from 'username@gmail.com' \
  --mail-rcpt 'john@example.com' \
  --upload-file mail.txt

 

 

I'm sooo sure cURL is built into this camera because is the quickest method for firmware updates. We just authorize them to install, but they get downloaded in camera.

@PabloZarate Totally agree this is completely unacceptable, very disappointed, just make it sent  a trigger MQTT messages, or via HTTP.

I have been analysing a couple security cameras since I am upgrading the security in my family houses and purchased a Tapo C200 because it had a lot of good reviews.

I recived yesterday my Tapo C200 TP-link camera and was quite happy to see how easy it was to configure it with my router and the app, as well as with the quality on the image, but I am very disappointed to see it is not possible to configure it to store a minimum amount of videos or images on my app, an FTP, or send some of this images via email.

I could not imagine Tapo C200 only had option to store in the SD card (which is not enough secure in case they steal de camera) or on their cloud wich is not the best solution for the 30 cameras we need.

For this reason I can not consider Tapo C200 as an option unless in the following upgrades it allows to send emails or I could manage to hack it.

What is the best option to reprogram the Tapo C200 to meet my needs?

Has anybody managed to access via SSH with PuTTy or something similar?

@Brook  .

 

Hello Brook.  Picture notifications are really useful because tapo application takes lot of time to open when motion detection notification comes , atleast make enable the rich notification option with out subscription or atleast make a telegram integration. So that somehow we can see a snapshot in notification it self. I really hope you consider any one of the way ( image notification without subscription or telegram notification or email notification) in this three ways. Thanks something like this I've attached in the screenshot
