I've looked through every section of the Tapo app and I can't find any way to create a shortcut to do this.  My cams are all C120s and C225s but none of them show a Reboot option in the actions I can assign to a shortcut.  

 

I hope I'm missing something here because it's a pain rebooting 9 cameras one by one.  

 

Why would I want to do this?  My home network is a mesh system and sometimes the cameras connect to a mesh unit that doesn't have the best signal strength for it.  I've found that rebooting the camera fixes this 95% of the time and I'm thinking that instead of going one by one through each camera, it would be easier just to reboot them all with one shortcut.

Hi,
The Reboot action is not available for the Tapo cameras. However, you can try to set the Auto Reboot feature on the camera's Device Settings>Reboot page to allow your camera to reboot automatically during the time you configured.
Best Regards

Thanks for the reply.  Is this something I should submit as a feature request or is there a technical reason why this could not be implemented?
