Model: Tapo C210  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.3.0

Let us please toggle Home and Away modes using Shortcuts and thereby Alexa, it isn't very pleasant to always head into the app and navigate into camera settings just to change modes.

Hello   @LeonWasTaken 

It sounds good to have Home/Away mode in the Shortcut/ Automation, we'd record this for consideration. 

If any user love this feature, please leave your vote and comments for it, thank you!

It would be nice to have this... i would like to be notified by my camera movement detection while im not in home.. instead of the whole time... i want that kasa cam continue to record.. but just notify of movement if i am not in home (maybe wifi detection?) Or at least an alexa command/widget

Please add automated home/away so privacy mode can be enabled/disabled using geofencing.

Please, an easy toggle widget or drop-down button. Even better if it is via geo-location. When Google askes me "do you wanna set your home to away", would that help?

  @LeonWasTaken  I understand there is a security issue doing this via Alexa (a burglar could just ask Alexa to switch away mode off).

 

However if home/away mode could be activated via a secure API call then you could easily activate the mode automatically using an app such as Macrodriod. This app would detect your aerial by noticing your phone attached to your home WiFi and then automatically enable Home mode on your camera.

 

We just need Taop to agree to make the feature available via API. The benefit of this approach is that you wouldn't even need to remember to ask Alexa!!

I think this is must have feature. I am controlling a lot through Apple Shortcuts. In Apple Shortcuts there is a possibility to use shortcut from Tapo, if we could create Tapo shortcut to set camera in Home/Away mode, it would be possible.  I want to set my cameras in Home mode when I am at the location. Currently such basic thing is not possible. I am really considering other products because of lack of this feature.

An android widget or the ability to select home or away from the shortcut maker in the app would be great. Could you explain why this has not been added sooner.
