      Are you sure about this? I think they are on the Tapo app?
      Actually I am pretty sure they use the Tapo app as this model does not show in my Kasa app

          I stand corrected.

        I have this camera and can confirm it uses the tapo app.

          I just bought it. How do you find it?

          •  

            @ets27: I use it as a baby monitor and it hasn’t skipped a beat. Excellent at what it does. Vivid daytime video, decent nighttime vids using ir. Firmware has been updated thrice since I’ve owned it. Regular app updates too. Honestly great bang for the buck.

            Since I got my first one, I’ve been exploring other cameras in the eco system too so I’m happy.

            Security is one part I’m not sure about though. I’ve put my trust in them, let’s see.

              @hashtagbargain: IR lights are not good for you. Can make you blind as you don't react by blinking because you cant see the light. The brighter they are the worse it is. Hence why I'd never put a night vision camera in a baby's room. Think of it light sleeping with bright lights on all the time. Sure your eyelids block some of the light but not all.

                @julz: thanks for the reminder.. im sure there there is an option to manually switch off IR lights?

                •  

                  @cezasu: Use the Tapo app to switch the camera to daylight mode.

                @julz: I have the C200 cameras on my baby's room. I was concerned by your comment. So i did some measurements.

                A dark room is 0 lux according to my phone's light sensor.

                A dark room with the phone sensor up against the camera's face at maybe 15cm away ( to avoid minimum screen brightness reflecting from the camera) it's about 50lux in night mode with the 4 tiny IR blasters.

                At about a meter, it's 2 lux.
                on the baby's mattress about 2meters it's 0 lux.

                It's obviously not 0 lux as then they wouldnt see the baby but it's probably a fraction of a lux. I doubt it's a problem.

                I have the cameras mounted on a light stand so they're 2m off the ground.

                  @FoxJump: Cool good to know. I dont have the equipment to test but had read some articles aboutt it and thought it would be worth sharing.

                    @julz: Yeah defo worth mentioning.
                    I used an app on my android called Physics toolbox or similar, and it uses the onboard light sensor used to detect the ambient light for your auto screen brightness.

                    NB: I did not downvote you. Not sure who did.

                    @julz: Hi Julz, good point… you can never be too careful especially with childrens stuff.

                    I did some hunting around and found this:

                    Eyes are damaged at a cellular level when the energy they’re exposed to is either 1) in the ionizing portion of the electromagnetic spectrum (IR is nowhere near that), or 2) in high enough intensity to cause thermal-ionization (heat damage) to cells. These produce neither.

                    These cams have what are known as near-IR emitters. They are of low energy intensity, they’re unfocused beams, and they produce broader spectrum emissions across multiple wavelengths due to imprecise manufacturing which is why you can see that slight red glow (the emitter is bleeding over in to the visible red portion of the spectrum). None of those things are harmful and staring at it is similar to staring at a common night light.

                    In contrast, intense focused light at a very narrow wavelength is a laser, and ultraviolet light which is ionizing sits on the opposite side of the visible spectrum. Both of those will cause damage precisely because they are the opposite of the IR in these devices.

                    There are no cases where near-IR lights at normal intensity have ever caused damage, that’s why you’ve never seen a warning label about it. On the other hand we’ve all seen warning labels about looking at lasers or protecting your eyes from UV with sunglasses.

                    You can get a better understanding about what’s all at play with IR by reading about the electromagnetic spectrum, where these things sit on it, and where things start becoming dangerous (ionization).

                    I feel like things like coil heaters and fireplaces are far larger sources of heat(IR) but we don't give it a second though. I suspect the level of radiation danger is so miniscule there are no real issues from it. Also checked - not a single medical case of dangers for these IR lights documented.

    Good price! Got one!

    Looks like a good cheap camera, but no SmartThings integration?

    why not pay $10 more get the one from imou from the other deal which can do everything this one can plus extra like pan and tilt.

      Kogan is the most annoying thing in the world. I will never ever buy again from them.

        same.. my latest experience with them (dicksmith) was not good as well..
