Model: Tapo C500  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I am currently using Tapo TC70 Indoor pan/tilt cameras which are connected to a Network Video Recorder (NVR). I am interested in using the Tapo C500 for outdoor use but it is not clear if the device supports connection to a NVR.

 

The TC70 specification states the following protocols are supported:

TCP/IP, DHCP, ARP, ICMP, DNS, NTP, HTTP, HTTPS, UDP, ONVIF, RTSP

 

The C500 specification states the following protocols are supported:

TCP/IP, ICMP, DNS, HTTPS, TCP, UDP

 

The C500 does not appear to support ONVIF which implies it may not work with a NVR.

 

Any information on the Tapo C500 would be much appreciatted.

I have now installed a Tapo C500 and can confirm that it supports RTSP/ONVIF protocol, including pan/tilt control.

The setup is exactly the same as the TC70, as described by the response by Wayne-TP.

Thank you for the feedback. Tapo C500 supports RTSP/ONVIF protocol. We have done a test on our end and it streams normally. Your feedback has been forwarded to the related team, the datasheet should be modified soon.

Tested Tapo C500 with NVR DS-7608NI-K1/8P but asking for password. I didnt setup any password, just the regular setup. Should i make some update to camera? Or if you can help with the best compatible nvr for this camera...

For the TC70 camera, in the Tapo App Settings/Advanced Settings/Device Account, I added a Username and Password.

I have an unbranded 8-Channel NVR/DVR. In the NVR settings I entered the username and password that had been setup in the Tapo App.

To connect Tapo camera to NAS or NVR, here is a guidance, FYI. How can I connect my Tapo camera to a NAS or NVR?

 

The required username and password by the NAS/NVR can be set up in the Tapo APP ->Camera Settings -> Advanced settings ->Device Account.

 After several hours of trying configurations, this works. Be sure to setup username and password in the Tapo app.
