This guide will show you how to connect your Tapo/Kasa device to your Alexa. Once connected, you can use simple voice commands to control Tapo/Kasa smart devices and stream your Tapo/Kasa camera videos on your Amazon Echo/Fire TV.

Step 1: Link your Tapo/Kasa smart device with Amazon Alexa referring to How to make my Tapo/Kasa device (smart plug, smart camera, smart lighting) work with Amazon Alexa

Step 2: Control your Tapo/Kasa smart devices based on the below voice commands.

For example:

“Hey Alexa, turn on Tapo P110’’

“Hey Alexa, show My Front Door Camera’’

Currently, the Tapo/Kasa camera doesn’t support “camera on/off” command due to possible security risks. For example, an intruder could potentially shut off your cameras with a simple command.

*Note: “Device Name” is user-defined in the Tapo App. If you change the name in Alexa, please use the name in Alexa in voice command. We recommend that you set up nicknames for your devices that are easy to remember and call.

The following are Amazon Alexa voice commands supported by the Tapo/Kasa smart devices at present.

The length of time you can stream the live feed on Amazon devices

Watching the live feed of Tapo/Kasa cameras through Amazon Alexa will use your internet traffic as it’s a Cloud-to-Cloud service. In consideration of your extranet traffic and performance, the live feed will stop automatically after 10 minutes. You can ask Alexa to show the camera again if you want to continue streaming.
