With the Device Sharing feature, you can invite your families to manage the smart devices together.


  • For cameras, you can share it with 2 different accounts at most and these two accounts can only access live view and playback.
  • Some devices do not support the sharing feature for the time being. And the APP will prompt that the sharing feature is not supported.


1.         On the home page, long-press the device you want to share, then tap Share. Or on the Me page, tap Device Sharing and select the device you want to share.  

2.         Enter the TP-Link ID you want to share the device with, then tap SHARE. The TP-Link ID is the email address you use to log into your APP.

3.         After successfully invited, your families can manage this device with this TP-Link ID.
