TP-Link’s smart home brand Tapo just announced a new home security camera ‘Tapo C120,’ priced at $39.99. The device is designed for both indoor and outdoor usage, including pet or baby monitoring. It comes with a magnetic mount and adjustable stand that make it easy to set it up.
The C120 is a wired camera and small enough to fit in a palm. It offers a video resolution of 2K, local storage with an onboard microSD card, AI-powered person detection, adjustable dual spotlights, a starlight sensor for color night vision, full duplex two-way audio, and an alarm system. The features crammed inside this little camera make it an all-rounder, and that too at a reasonable price.
In addition to these features, the adjustable magnetic mount makes the camera even more versatile, as it is meant to make it easy for the device to be moved from one place to another. The C120 works with the Tapo smart home app and is also compatible with Alexa and Google Home for live streaming of footage on a smart display.
The free-to-use AI-powered smart alerts for people and vehicles make the camera capable to be used for monitoring a front door or driveway. The adjustable dual spotlights can be triggered for different events, while the duplex two-way audio allows for talking to and hearing sounds in the surroundings. With the alarm system, users can record their own audio.
The Tapo C120 will be available for purchase at Amazon from the 13th of November.
