Hello everyone,

 

Currently, we don’t have camera control software for a PC nor can we view the Tapo camera directly on the web, we can only watch Live View of the Tapo Camera on the Tapo App or sync the camera screen to devices like Echo show, fire TV, etc.

 

If you want to view the Tapo camera on a PC, you may install third-party software to view and manage the camera, and here are the detailed instructions:

Thank you for your feedback, your feedback will be recorded and forwarded to our team for further evaluation. 

 

Good day.

@Richard_T123 

I've tried a few third-party software programs now and can't get any of them to work with tapocam cameras, you said be patient, how long do we have to wait, is a PC windows software program actually under development or not ? the android version isnt the most stable platform, but its our only option at the moment,

@DemiScuzz

I was told that if you download blue-stacks (allows android apps to work on windows) then download ISPY you can view your Tapo cameras that way, when I tried I couldn't get it to pick up the Tapo cameras, everything else worked with ISPY except Tapo, but try it for your self, good luck,

@Richard_T123 I am in the same position, no Windows support. Bluestacks doesn't work.  The other apps don't work ( ISpy and DVR), With my eyesight, seeing things on a mobile screen is problematic.  Tapo need to get some sensible support in place.

@premtimi123 I've tried the iSpy app twice now, downloaded it, uninstalled it and tried again using bluestacks and ISpy picks up all cameras except tapo cameras, I think tapo should invest in a windows programs that allows the camera to be viewed on the big screen, it's about the only make of security camera that you cant use windows to view the images, they need step up to the next level and take a serious approach to user-end help and support, I.M.O.
