Hi

 

I went today to read the Automation and Shortcuts article

( https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/faq/2734/ )

 

 

And wanted to create this simple Automation:

 

Everyday, at 07:00AM, send a Single Image from the Camera, to a Specified Email Address.

 

 

After reading the whole article,

it seems that the only action that I get for a Tapo Camera, is Enable/Disable Privacy Mode.

 

The Tapo app does not offer any other actions..

 

 

My question:

Is it possible to achieve what I want to do somehow?

Maybe using a Zapier or IFTTT?

(Can a Tapo camera work with either one of these services?)

 

 

Thank you

Hi,
The feature to send a single image from the camera to a specified email address is not available on the Tapo camera, and your usage scenario can't be achieved via the Smart Action feature on the Tapo app.

Currently, the Tapo cameras can achieve some usage scenarios via IFTTT and do not support Zapier, however, your usage scenario also can't be achieved via IFTTT.

 

If you have other usage scenarios that want to be achieved, please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Best Regards

Hi Solla-topee

 

 

Thank you very much for your reply.

 

 

Regarding:

> Currently, the Tapo cameras can achieve some usage scenarios via IFTTT

 

 

Can you please tell what can be done when using IFTTT?

 

And maybe you have a link for an article, so I can experiment with it..

 

 

Thank you very much

Hi, 
You can refer to the instructions below to make the Tapo device work with IFTTT.
How to make my Tapo devices work with IFTTT?
For the Tapo C320WS, the Trigger can be the camera detecting some events, and the Action can be the camera turning on/off privacy mode, turning on/off spotlight, etc.
Best Regards

Hi,
It's recommended to start a new thread on the Feature Request section to describe your inquiries and usage scenarios in detail, and if other users have the same request, they can vote on the new thread.
I'll then log your feature request and forward it to the relevant team to evaluate.
Best Regards
