TP-Link’s New Smart Home Lineup Features Affordable 2K Security Cameras | Engadget


TP-Link is better known for its WiFi routers than its smart home gear, but it aims to change that reputation. The company has officially launched a line of Tapo smart homes that revolves around low-budget 2K resolution security cameras. Inside, you can choose between the fixed Tapo C110 ($30) or the pan and tilt movement of the Tapo C210 ($35). Venture outside and you can choose between the basic night vision and IP66 weather resistance of the Tapo C310 ($50) or upgrade to the Tapo C320WS ($60, photo) with a starlight sensor, floodlights and two-way audio. All cameras can record to microSD storage up to 256GB or use a Tapo Care subscription with 30 days of video history and perks like baby cry detection.

There’s also a new LED-based RGB light strip, the Tapo Smart L900-10 (pictured middle), for gamers and anyone looking to brighten up their rooms. The $45 pack offers a 32.8-foot band with support for 16 million colors, dimming, and music sync.

All Tapo models are available now. Security cameras won’t challenge high-end rivals with 4K and similar upgrades, but they can be good values ​​if you’re looking for alternatives to Wyze and other budget-focused brands.
