Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: Latest

Dear community and support,

 

I just recieved my C200 camera's and have set them up yesterday. I only have 1 question which doesn't seem to be in the manual: Notifcations Schedule.

 

I don't need a notification everytime I walk past the camera, but I would like a notification when motion is detected within a certain schedule. I only found the option to set a schedule for the camera-alerts (the alarm function in the physical camera). That works perfect, but I would need an exact copy of that schedule for the phone-notifications. 

 

Please tell me this is possible... or otherwise explain how it's intended to be used.

Hello, thanks for bringing this up again.

 

Sorry that the Notification feature doesn't support the schedule setting yet, but we do have the plan to add it in the future updates, please kindly wait for the new Tapo app or firmware release. 

 

Currently, we may try with an alternative by enabling the Home Mode and Away Mode on the Tapo app for the camera. You may set different Motion Detection and Notification permissions as per the two modes like you can choose to receive notifications when in Away Mode but don't receive it when in Home Mode.

For security concerns and if the camera gets stolen, we don't think the notification schedule feature will help but cloud storage may help, which will be supported in the near future.

 

Thanks for your patience again, good day.

@Tummie555 Hi, if you want to get the notification at a certain schedule, you can go to Camera Settings>Recording Schedule, click on Edit to customize your motion detection time.

Hi @Stella.Q , thank you for the quick response. I purchased a micro SD card as suggested so I could access the "recording settings/schedule" in the app. 

 

Unfortunately, this doesn't solve my problem. This only allows us to set a schedule for "recording motion detection". The notifications on the phone don't comply to this schedule. 

 

So far we have 2 abilties to set a schedule in the app:

 

- Camera alerts schedule (Purpose for setting a schedule when the camera itself should make an alarm sound when motion is detected)

- Recording schedule (Only available when used with micro SD card, purpose for setting a schedule when the camera should start recording videoclips)

 

I can't imagine a schedule for notifications is absent, because every minute my phone rings with 3 camera's in house. 

 

This is a different model, which does have the option clearly stated in the manual: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1966/

@Tummie555 

You are right, Kasa camera support notification schedule, but Tapo camera does not support yet, it just supports the two schedules you mentioned. We will feedback to our R&D department and then they will work on and evaluate the feasibility.

 

Have a nice day.

I recieved a message from support that it's already on their development list and will come in a future firmware update.

@kinimod I'm sorry but I don't know. I am just a customer of the product. You'll need to ask @Stella.Q
