Smart homes are all the rage these days, and we’re all adding anything from smart thermostats, to lights, to cameras to our homes to gather more information and allow us to interact with everything more easily.
Having a camera keep an eye on your kids while they sleep, or a dog whilst you’re at work can be great for peace of mind, and the folks at TP-Link have brought their Kasa KC120 camera to the UK. With support for Google Home and of course Alexa, this camera is a great option for anyone who wants a small camera to help them keep tabs on what’s going on.
While the camera is now available in the UK for the first time, it’s actually been on sale in the United States for some time now, and it’s proving hugely popular. With a 30° wide-angle view and support for 1080p video, this camera should give you a great view of anything that goes on in your home.
Add to the mix that the camera also supports night vision, and things start to really look up. Oh, and did we mention the free cloud storage in a world where the competition charges for it?
Other features include 24/7, crystal-clear live video; an all-glass lens; 130° wide-angle view with 1080p resolution for rich colors, balanced lighting and sharp video quality to make users feel like they’re in the room. Well, it doesn’t end there.
- Night vision up to 25 ft. provides crystal clear night monitoring.
- Works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home Assistant to allow voice control.
- Custom activity zones and notifications ensure users get the alerts that matter most.
- Records a clip every time it senses motion or detects a sound.
- With Kasa Care, activity recordings are stored to your Kasa account so users can review and download videos from anywhere. Each Kasa Cam comes with two days of free video history and a one month free trial to access 30 days of video history.
- Two-way audio with built-in microphone and speaker lets users keep in touch with their family.
- All recordings are protected with AES-128 bit data encryption and SSL/TLS.
If all that sounds like it ticks your boxes, you can pick a Kasa KC120 camera up for £99.99, which is a full £40 off the normal retail price. If you’re in the US, you can save $30, too. Sorry guys, it’s not quite the same level of saving but what are you gonna do?
