Hi there

 

The camera seems to be very noisy with a lot of clicking round about dusk. I've seen a suggestion that this is caused by it switching between daylight and nighttime modes. I would be grateful if anyone has any knowledge about this and whether I can stop the noise by switching from auto mode to daylight mode?

 

Many thanks

thanks but the noise turned out not to be clicking at all. It was actually the motion alarm which although it said it was off, appeared rather feint on the screen. Switching it on and then properly off has resolved the problem.

Hello  @SJJENK 

Thank you for your feedback, that pretty common for security cameras , camera would make a click sound when switches between Day/ Night mode as the internal filter is changed to be on Night mode (infrared mode).   I'm afraid that mechanical sound could be not avoided so far.  

 

If you found that's very disturbing, can you share a video link of the phenomenon, and we will have a check, thank you.

For ' It was actually the motion alarm which although it said it was off, appeared rather feint on the screen.' can I have a photo of it? 

May I know the Tapo APP version, model of phone & Android / IOS version, thank you.
