Reading, Berks. 8th May 2019 - Kasa Smart by TP-Link, a leading consumer smart home brand, today launches the Kasa Cam Outdoor Security Camera in the UK to complement the existing range of smart home devices and indoor camera (KC120). The new security camera (KC200) brings simplified security to the outdoors.
“Kasa Smart has become a dependable smart home brand with a growing portfolio of quality products, providing a variety of app-enabled solutions that give you remote control of your home from anywhere,” said Will Liu Managing Director, TP-Link UK Ltd. “The addition of a weather-resistant security camera to our portfolio means customers can extend their peace of mind to their outdoor spaces too.”
Building on the success of the Kasa Cam Indoor for in-home security, the easy-to-install Kasa Cam Outdoor is a weather-resistant security camera with crystal-clear 1080p streaming video, crisp two-way audio and a night vision range of 30 feet, including the option to zoom in if you need a closer look. The free Kasa Smart app gives you a live view and instantly alerts you whenever it detects motion or sounds. Kasa Smart cameras, including the Kasa Cam Indoor and Kasa Cam Outdoor, have near real time video streaming latency when the camera and the Kasa Smart app are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This improves streaming and reduces lag making it useful when you are expecting a package delivery or when receiving an alert of an unwanted visitor. The app also allows you to activate a built-in siren to deter intruders or simply use two-way audio to talk to a delivery person, if you’re running late to the door.
Kasa Cam Outdoor offers improvements to eliminate unwanted alerts and recordings. From a moving tree branch on a windy day to bugs flying by, outdoor cameras encounter a number of motion events and can record several unwanted video clips. Kasa Cam offers two key features with flexible settings to ensure users get alerts and recordings that are important to them:
Activity Zones: users choose an area in the camera field of view where motion should be detected while ignoring the rest, like moving tree branches.
Motion Duration Detection: ignores fast micro second motion events that can be triggered by a insects or other objects that appear for a split second.
Once the camera records a video clip, the downloadable video is stored in the Kasa Smart cloud and can be viewed in the Kasa Smart app for up to two full days, for up to three cameras, at no additional cost.
