TAPO C120 Web Cam 

Image of author
This web cam can be used both inside and outside. It is especially good at night when there is little light around. A near 3metre long USB 'C' to USB lead fits into the back of the unit and there is also a 13amp USB plug supplied so you need to be less than that distance from a 13amp plug.

The camera is round at 5.5cm and is 5cm from the back of the USB 'C' lead to the front. It has a stand attached to the base that can be used as such or extended vertically by 9.5cm and screws are provided should you wish to permanently fix it to a wall. The camera rotates manually should you need to aim the camera at a different direction.

Alternately it can be used with a supplied magnetic base plate to any magnetic surface or stuck to a clean wall.

Assuming you are happy with using a QR code you can set it up and log in or sign up to a TAPO account.

There is a 14 side 10x7cm fold out sheet 'Getting Started Guide' that is clear and easy to follow so setting up should be straight forward.

Once the App is downloaded you need to sign in or open an account. The getting started sheet then hands over to the App to finish the install, you need to link your Wi-Fi to the Tapo camera and once linked then return to your own Wi-Fi but you also need to re log in to confirm its you.

At this point I was somewhat deafened by sound until I found the icon to reduce it and providing this is completed you should now see whatever the camera is pointing at.

Having linked to your phone or Android device it only remains to place/fix the camera within the 3 metres of the power outlet.

You can insert a micro SD card into the camera for storage and also work through the icons shown with the image to set it up to suit your environment.

I found it was rather good in poor light so ideal for external as well as internal use. Apparently there is no App for a PC.

The Tapo C120 web cam is available from the Tapo online store for £32.99 with free delivery.
