The Detection Zone feature supports designating a specific area that you want your Tapo Cam to detect activity within. 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 designated detection area for all detection types.

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

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

Case 1: Set for All

Step 1: Launch Tapo App and select the camera you would like to configure by selecting it and entering its live view.

Step 2: Tap Device Settings → Detection Detection Zones.

Step3: Select Set for All and tap the Edit button to set the detection zones so they only capture detections within the specified zones.

Step 4: Tap and drag the corners of the detection zone to change its shape. Personalize detection zones by adding, deleting, and clearing zones. Then save the changes.
