  @Wayne-TP It would be great if these feature would be also available for the Tapo C310 (HW: 1.0)

Would it be also possible in the future to download videos from a remote network?

A: No. Connection to the local network is required to download SD card videos.

 

I just found out about this feature (after latest firmware and app update), but disappointed when I wasn't able to use it remotely.

So the question is why. What's blocking to do this from remote network? I'm already able to record remotely (start/stop) method, but have to wait for the time to pass.

 

Regards

Luke
