Networking brand TP-Link has launched its Tapo range of smart home products in the UK.
The small intelligent devices are designed to “enable users to adopt a new smart home lifestyle at an affordable cost”.
Armed with advanced technology and an aesthetically pleasing design, the Tapo range launches in the UK with Tapo C200 Pan/Tilt Home Security Wi-Fi Camera, Tapo C100 Home Security Wi-Fi Camera and Tapo P100 Mini Smart Wi-Fi Socket.
The Tapo P100 smart plug allows users to easily control and manage devices connected to the plug using their smartphones. The Tapo P100 works with a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi connection without an additional hub and can be controlled from one single Tapo App available free on iOS and Android.
Using the app, users can access the smart plug’s Schedule and Timer features to create a weekly schedule and countdown plans. In addition, the Tapo P100 is equipped with an Away Mode feature; enabling users to designate periods of time where the smart plug will turn on and off at intervals, suggesting someone’s home and making any would-be intruder think twice.
The Tapo C200 Pan/Tilt Home Security Wi-Fi Camera is designed for users to protect their homes and keep track of their loved ones. Equipped with 1080p resolution, 360° horizontal and 114° vertical range, and up to 30ft of night vision, Tapo C200 delivers a high-quality live viewing experience day and night. With a built-in microphone and speaker, users can take advantage of Two-way Audio via the Tapo app to keep in touch with their family.
Its Motion Detection and Activity Zone features will send a notification to a user’s smartphone once suspected motion is detected. Teamed with its Sound and Light Alarm, users can trigger light and sound effects to frighten away unwanted visitors. The app interface shows the view from up to 4 cameras at the same time. Simply tap one of them to take a closer look.
Lastly, the Tapo C100 Home Security Wi-Fi Camera is a fully featured camera providing high definition video, recording every image in crystal clear 1080p definition. With the advanced night time vision, users can ensure they keep their home and belongings safe with notifications alerting them if it detects any movement to a distance of 30ft.
The Tapo C100 is equipped with the same privacy mode and local storage ability as the Tapo C200. Privacy mode allows users to shut down surveillance to protect their privacy whenever they want, whilst local storage stores up to 128 GB of footage.
“Tapo was created to bring the full benefits of sophisticated smart home technology to every customer in an accessible way,” said Will Liu, managing director of TP-Link UK. “With competitive technology readily available at an affordable cost, our suite of Tapo products put users in full control of their homes no matter where they are in the world.”
