Hi

I need a security camera for an eldery person having problems with anti social behavior they would like a camera to be able to sit by the window and record video and audio if possible onto an SD card but they don't have any internet or smart phone access. do these kind of cameras still exist or it everything now setup via wifi and app based?

 

Thanks

Hi,
1) The Tapo camera can record videos to the microSD card without an internet connection. However, they need to be configured first, for example, Tapo Smart Camera Unboxing and Configuration Video.
After configuring the Tapo camera on the Tapo app, you can set up detection and microSD card storage settings in the Device Settings > Detection and Storage & Recording pages. These settings will remain active even if the camera loses internet connection.

2) Below are the tips to position the Tapo camera. Please note that it's not recommended to put a camera behind glass/window.

If i could setup and configure the camera using my wifi what would happen when i unplug it to take to my friend when it loses power would it need to be configured again through the app?

is there a reason that it's not recommended to put a camera behind glass/window, is due to sunlight damage or just people being able to see the camera?.

Hi,
Usually, unplugging the camera and plugging it back in won't make the camera lose the detection and record settings, however, the internet-related features, such as sync time with the NTP server, remote control, stream camera's live feed, etc., will be affected if the camera does not connect to a Wi-Fi network in the new place, and the date&time on the recordings may be incorrect.  

 

If the camera is installed behind glass, infrared lights may cause reflection when the camera works in the Night mode, resulting in blurry and unclear images, thereby hindering timely detection of moving objects. For the battery cameras, glasses will block their motion sensor, making it unable to detect events.

 

Best Regards
