  • Great unit, $4.99 AUD per month per camera to get access to cloud-based playbacks, decent value!

    Charging cable (USB) can be powered by the Xioami powerboard with the USB slots, and is about 1.5m in length.

    The only issue I am having is after 5-minutes in the Tapo App it'll timeout saying do you wish to continue to play live view, which for me means I cannot install a monitor based system inside to see the camera 24/7 without pressing the "continue" button on the app every 5 minutes. There is workarounds, but wasn't able to get it to work, probably just me.

    • You should be able to Chromecast it

      • Interesting, I'll check that out thanks!

      If I'm not mistaken the timeout message should only happen if you're viewing the feed from off of the local wifi network (on your mobile phone's 4g or 5g for example). If you are trying to view the feed from outside of the house, you might be able to use the rtsp feed through VLC if you open up the port on your router. You can open the stream in VLC using: "rtsp://camera-ip-address/stream1" on the local network. I think rtsp uses port 554, so the address might look something more like "rtsp://external-ip-address:554/stream1" when connecting from outside (with port 554 forwarded in your router settings to point to the camera). I haven't actually tried the rtsp feed externally though, so your mileage may vary. You will likely also need to set up a username and password for the rtsp feed through the tapo app. Hopefully that helps!

    • So I guess any 10W or above charger should work. Xiaomi Powerboard has 2.4A*5V ports.

    How does this compare to the Reolink? They come with included cloud storage.

    • Never heard of this Reolink, how does this pan for security system outside as want to get something for front of house. I better look into it asap as there’s a Mother’s Day sale lol

  • I picked this camera up a week or so ago to use as a baby monitor and I'm super impressed so far. The video quality is good, the night vision works well, and the Tapo app is nice enough to use. I did a quick test of the 2-way audio, and it seems to work well enough. I plan to use an iPad as the primary viewing device, but I've also tested viewing the feed on my PC and TV via VLC and it worked great. Definitely no complaints at this price.

    • Are you able to keep the video feed on for whole night?

      • I've left the stream running simultaneously on my iPad via the app, and my PC via VLC for multiple hours at a time and it's been all good. I haven't done any overnight tests though.

        • How do u you stream with VLC? Via pC ?

          • +1

            @prankster: Open vlc and select open stream, then use "rtsp://camera-ip-address/stream1". Config the username and pass in the app.

      • Yes. I have the c200 version for twins and for did-grampa fall off the bed cam

        Onto an android tablet using this app

        Works reliably. Camera pretty rugged. Kids have knocked it off the stand I have them on maaanay times. Ones it even popped open and I just clipped it back in.

        Weakest point is it's mount. But I just superglued a tripod screw hole into it.

    Reminded me to check on Wyze Cam prices,
    Seem they now ship to Aus directly with free shipping.
    Excellent software / hardware from my experience.

    • Hey. Where did you see wyze cam ship to aus?
      I recently checked them, it is only in US.

    • Ugly looking cameras lol is it really that good?

  • Just got 2 of these, hoping the UK power plug won't be a hassle to use with an adapter.

    • Just use normal au power brick w usb.

      • I'm curious about this, as the aus version came with a 9v dc power supply, with a round plug on the cam side. Not sure how you'd plug in a 5v usb.

        • +1

          Interesting… I’ve got xiaomi and Imou cameras and they both have 5v seems kinda weird this mob would use 9v just to screw the customer out of convenience

  • Just checked mine and correct… 0.6a 9v supply… Not usb

    • damn!

    • If usb is the power you’ve got, you could use a boost converter to up that 5v to 9v, but otherwise you’d be better off with a proper 9v supply.

      • I bought a Jaycar USB to 9v adapter and I can run them off a power bank that does passthrough charging.

  • Hi guys

    Is this a wired camera ? Or can we charge it and use it without hooking it up to a socket ?

    Also, how does it compare to a Arlo Pro v2

    • It’s wired not wireless

  • These are awesome. I use it to monitor outside from inside. It solved the mystery of why the bird feeder was always upside down on the ground in the morning - possums.

  • Am a little confused with the SD card storage.

    OP’s post (which is from Amazon) says local storage supports up to 128GB Micro SD card.

    But TP-Link’s website says microSD card stores up to 256 GB:

    Does anyone knows which is the right one?
