The Detection Zone feature allows you to define a specific area that you want your Tapo Cam to detect. If you only need to monitor activities in a certain area, you can set custom detection zones to reduce unnecessary detections.

There are two types of detection zones:

Set for All: Monitor the same detection area for all detection types.

Set for Each: Monitor different detection areas for each detection type

Please follow the below steps to customize the detection zone for your Tapo Camera.
