Kasa should really update their app and camera firmware to utilize location services for a phone (or multiple phones with the app installed and logged into the account).  This would allow users to configure camera rules to turn on/off when a one or more devices ( phones) leaves/arrives based on location.  The location rule should be able to be overridden by a scheduled rule that would allow recording while you sleep and your devices are at home.  This would truly make Kasa a prime competitor in home security.

HQ has mentioned that due to security the ability to shut off a camera from a third party operation would not work. Similar to having Alexa turn off a camera. You can configure a schedule in the Kasa app though to turn on or off or manually adjust it, but not from outside means via an app.

Thanks.  Not asking for a third party to do it.  Kasa needs to do it, just like Arlo, Amazon, etc.  Not a new ask technologically, just something Kasa should do,
