TP-Link Kasa Spot 1080p Security Camera Review
The security camera from TP-link is not any ordinary camera, it has night vision with the ability to capture images and record videos up to a distance of 20 feet. 1080p recording means better sensors are have been installed in it. It works in wifi and provides you two-way audio transmission as well. The features, pros, and cons will be discussed down below to know more about it.
1080p HD recording
The night vision security camera from Tp-Link is full HD 1080p resolution that means 1920×1080. It records high definition videos crystal clearly and captures the image with full visibility so you don’t have any problem to see or identify anything or anyone.
This Tp-Link security camera rotates 360 degrees horizontally to cover the whole area of your house, making it more protected. Install it in a place to cover most of the area for you to see.
Field of view
There are few security cameras on the market that think this feature through. The wide-angle lens is very rare but useful. It covers more area without needing to tilt. 130 degrees field of view is pretty great compared to other security cameras of the same price range.
What Do We like
This Kasa 1080p camera has the ability to capture crystal clear images and record flawless videos from the distance of up to 20 feet at least. The infrared LED lights in the night vision mode help it to see everything clearly in darkness. It will notice any kind of movement or activity in complete darkness.
Two-way audio transmission
The speakers work as a microphone as well. That means if you have installed two of these into two different rooms of your house, then you can hear the voice of another side through the speakers as well as speak to them using the same speakers as a microphone. The noise cancellation in the speakers also helps you to hear only the voices from the other side, removing the unnecessary background noises.
Access and watch from anywhere
If you have a smartphone and a stable internet connection then using the Kasa Smart application for android and IOS you can monitor and also watch the live feed from anywhere on the planet. All you need to do is make sure your security camera back at home is connected to a stable and high-speed internet connection as well as the internet connection of your mobile phone is also stable. Keep an eye on your house and pets even if you are far away from your home and know what’s happening.
This is one of the rare features of any security camera ever. You can customize up to four different activity zones according to your preference. The security camera will detect any movements or activities on the selected areas especially and will send you an alert to let you know what’s happening.
What We Don’t Like
There is no micro sd card storage in this security camera. That means you can’t store your videos offline like any other camera. You will have to subscribe to a cloud storage website to get the space for a certain price. The recorded videos and captured images will be stored in the cloud. IT comes with 3 hours of free recording space only when purchased.
Not only you need a high-speed internet connection for the camera, but also you will need it later if you wish to see any previously recorded clip. They store everything on cloud storage and you will need a good internet connection to download the clip from storage before you see it.
This is a high-end security camera from Tp-Link. This will provide you with lots of features but also it has its disadvantages as well. The major con of this product would be the storage. You will have to purchase this product and also pay for storage every month or year. If the budget is not a problem for you and you already have a cloud storage that you use for any other purpose, then it is a good buy for you. Else, think this through if you can afford the monthly expenses of this product. Rest assured everything of this device is of top quality and worth it.
