Detection & Recording

Smart security cameras go a step further than passive recording devices by actively detecting movement or object in their field of view. When motion or object is detected, the camera can send real-time alerts to your smartphone or designated device, enabling timely responses to potential security threats. You are welcome to share your experience and provide feedback on the Detection and Recording features of our Tapo and Kasa cameras.

The Tapo app has a serious flaw. I have my Tapo camera set to record continously to a microSD card motion detection alerts activated. An intruder just walked in front of my camera for about 2 seconds.
