Memory Card Buying Tips:

  • Always make sure to buy from an authorized seller. Be careful about cheap SD cards. Do not buy used or refurbished SD cards.
  • Due to the diversity of quality of the microSD card, we cannot guarantee the microSD card you purchased would be 100% compatible with our Tapo/Kasa camera. We recommend you test the microSD card instantly after your purchase. We are not obliged to offer any RMA or help to troubleshoot your microSD card. To verify Fake MicroSD Card, please refer to How to Verify Fake Micro SD Cards
  • Pay attention to the Operating Temperature of the SD card, which can usually be found in the Specifications.
  • SD cards have a limited read and write lifespan. Replace SD cards once every few years to reduce potential failure.
  • Based on our lab test results, sorry to tell that Samsung EVO is not supported on all cameras.
