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.
  • microSD cards have a limited read and write lifespan. Replace microSD cards once every few years to reduce potential failure. Select High/Max Endurance microSD cards specifically designed for your home security cameras or dash cam to ensure stable performance of the camera.
  • Based on our lab test results, sorry to tell that Samsung EVO is not supported on all cameras.

Notes:

1. The recording durations in the table are estimated based on the average video bitrate measured in the laboratory. The actual recording duration in usage may vary depending on factors such as scene complexity, proportion of dynamic scenes, frame rate settings, and the resolution supported by the camera model.

2. With Loop Recording enabled, the MicroSD card will automatically overwrite the previously recorded videos from the beginning when it becomes full.
