Model: TC70  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Please consider adding geofencing.

 

To be able to arm camera sirens and hub sirens when the Hub sees that the last person with the Tapo app has exited the premises would be good. The Hub can disarm when it sees anyone with an app registered to the Hub.

Geofencing through the APP and cellphone gps is a good idea as long as the range of the fence (diameter) is usable and power consuption is mastered at the app level. By experience, some geofencing software are not good enough to be used with short range fence in urban area : too short if i can say so, and worst : it is often limited by the 2D mind of the coder. Geofencing needs to be designed in 3D in urban area (yes some coders need to practice spheric geometry).

 

Another geofencing featuere could be "network geofencing". It could be used alone by itself or as confirmation for GPS geofencing. In short, once the APP is connected to the camera network and that it is confirmed : you're being "geofenced" inside the perimeter. The limitation here is to own a wifi access point for which the output power can be controled/reduced to the reach limits of the property to get a proper behavior of the app.

 

Another geofencing or geofencing confirmation could be based on the name of the wifi network used by the cell phone that is carrying the APP.

 

And i can confirm right now that the TAPO APP is useless as regards the "at home/outside feature" as it is purely manual. Automation is really needed here. the alarm feature of the camera is just a boring feature that will finish locked in the "disabled" position. (C210 and TAPO used in my case)

  @SteveWex 

 

Yes please, then I can ditch my Arlo system

 

ArloQ used to Geaofence but they broke it in May 2019 and have never managed to fix it. Currently using Smartthings to enable/disable Arlo which is just a workaround 

 

The improved Tapo resolution and geofencing would be the icing on the cake

  @Wayne-TP Hi Wayne. What is Smart Action 2.0 ? And will I be able to use it with my new Tapo C225 ? Geofencing is a really important feature for me.

So, when is geofencing coming to Tapo app (IOS)? As of 2024-05-15 there is no sign of it.
