Below are some general questions about Kasa Cam Outdoor only.

 

Q1: How should I clean the surface of the Kasa Cam Outdoor?

You can clean dirt off your Kasa Cam Outdoor using a damp washcloth and wiping the edges off. We recommend caution when wiping the face of the camera so that you do not scratch the lens.  

 

Q2: Do I need a hub for the Kasa Cam Outdoor?

Some Kasa Cam Outdoors are hub free and designed to work straight out of the box with your existing wireless network. All you need to get started is a safe and covered outlet for you to plug the camera AC adapter into, for example, KC200.

While some must work with a Kasa Hub and users will need to add the Hub first on Kasa APP, for example, KC300.

 

Q3: How far can I place the Kasa Cam Outdoor from my Wi-Fi router?

The average range of Kasa Cam Outdoor cameras can be 25-50 feet away from the router. This range varies based on your router model, home type and wireless interference. You can test your camera’s signal strength from the device settings menu from within the app.

No, the Kasa Cam Outdoor can only be powered by being plugged into an electrical outlet.
