Tapo SolarCam Harnesses the Power of the Sun for Maintenance-Free, Wire-Free, Solar-Powered Security

    Irvine, Calif. – June 12, 2024 – Tapo, a TP-Link brand and global provider of smart home products, today introduced Tapo SolarCam, a wire-free security camera and solar panel pairing, designed for affordability, sustainability, and convenience. The Tapo SolarCam ensures around-the-clock monitoring with hassle-free installation, powered by solar energy, for unmatched peace of mind.


    Say goodbye to the hassle of wiring, frequently recharging batteries, and power outlets with Tapo SolarCam’s seamless integration of solar power technology, allowing for continuous monitoring on only 45 minutes of direct sunlight per day. Its unique solar panel can be attached directly to the camera for a sleek, unified look or installed separately with a 13 ft extra-long charging cable, empowering users to discover optimal spots for seamless monitoring. No sun? No problem. The built-in 6400mAh battery can keep Tapo SolarCam operating for up to 180 days.


    Monitoring extends beyond daylight hours with Tapo SolarCam’s Color Night Vision. This feature, paired with 1080p full HD resolution, delivers crisp, clear images even at night. The built-in spotlights not only illuminate the camera's field of view but also serve as a powerful deterrent to uninvited guests.


    The Tapo SolarCam isn't just a camera; it's a flexible smart home companion. Custom activity zones share alerts for the areas that matter most with advanced AI algorithms that distinguish between people and vehicles, reducing false alarms without the need for a subscription. With flexible storage options, including on-device 512 GB microSD card storage or cloud-based storage, user footage remains secure according to set preferences.


    Users can further take control of their home security with the Tapo app. Manage privacy zones, effortlessly locate specific events in the recordings, and share access with family and friends—all from the convenience of a smartphone.
