I'm thinking in buy the Tapo C310, but first I'd like to know how is compatibility with Scrypted.

I use it on a Raspberry Pi, so I'd like to save CPU using a camera with dedicate motion sensor. Does the Tapo C310 export its motion sensor to Scrypted? What about audio? Some Snapshot URL?

Does it work well on HomeKit?

I don't think tapo c310 has a motion sensor or it supports third-party management? It does support RTSP though, i'm streaming my cam on the PC. https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/faq/2680/

 PAM Diff plug in on Scrypted to capture mentions, right?

And what about Snapshots? The camera has a link that provide Snapshots image? I wonder it because I have a Ring doorbell, which is Cloud, so the most part of Snapshots doesn't arrive correctly and I'm thinking you can use a C310 snapshot on Ring doorbell.

Tapo cameras are getting famous in specialized forums for not having an url for snapshot. Tapo cameras should be avoided, except by simple users who are limited to using their application.

 

I have several tapo c200 cameras, purchased by mistake, and they cannot be used in chrome extensions such as myipcam due to lack of url, like the rest of my cameras. Also, detection of human motion should improve a lot.

 

Every time tree branches move, or a spider web moves near the camera, it detects human movement. To make matters worse, they do not allow you to send alert images if you are not subscribed to the paid cloud. But if you subscribe the camera only connects to the cloud and you lose all local ports like RTSP. In short, a camera nightmare.
