Good day.

Sorry for the delay.

Cameras themselves did not have web interface but Tapo cameras support the standard RTSP Protocol and they can work with third-party software or applications, like VLC player.

For detailed instruction, please refer to the following link:

Thank you very much.

Hi Brook,

I want to know if I can use 3rd party app on pc to watch my c200 over the internet?

 

How can I find and config the ports if there were more than 2 tapo cameras in my house at the same time?

I see here https://www.tp-link.com/vn/support/faq/2680/ there port 2020 of the sample camera, how can i find and config it?

 

Have a good day.

@MrTea 

Good day.

Thank you very much.

What 3rd party app do you want to use?

And we could not port forward the same port to multiple devices on the same network;

And for the port 2020, it Is customized on the iSpy software;

Thanks!

Thank you for the answer.

After 1 week trying, I still couldn't access from other app with internet.

The app which I used, was "IP cam viewer" on Android. It has option with ONVIF camera, I can access within the LAN network as below but trying to use ddns and port to access from internet was denied. 

 

I did open the 544 and 2020 port on router, other IP camera worked with my ddns. When I changed the LAN IP to ddns and tried to access from internet with 4G, the app said fail to connect and asked me to check the setting.

Also I have 3 Tapo cameras on my network, so I would love to find some ways to edit the port for each.

There are 2 Internet solutions which I know about: Home Assistant and Zone Minder.

Both will allow you to stream and do motion detection.

I have my C200 running on Zone Minder.

Zone Minder is highly oriented towards security cameras, where as Home Assistant is a general "smart home".

I understood that Home Assistant cannot control pan/tilt, but Zone Minder can.

 

I made some progress with Zone Minder with the pan/tilt in at least it is responding to my requests.

The format looks like "plain vanilla" but the C200 somehow doesn't like it.

The trouble is that I have zero information from TP Link on what is expected, or what the actual codes are.

I tried some possibilities but none work so far.
