The TP-Link Tapo C420S2 in detail

With the TP-Link Tapo C420S2, a new outdoor surveillance camera is waiting for you, which is supposed to stand out mainly for its affordable price and its convincing image quality.

The surveillance camera is offered as a set of two cameras. The cameras are IP65 waterproof and dustproof certified and can therefore be exposed to wind and weather outdoors without any problem. Since no cables need to be laid, placement is very easy. Moreover, you can reposition the cameras quite freely at any time. Of course, the C420S2 can also be installed indoors if desired.

It has a built-in artificial intelligence processor that can detect people, pets, packages and cars on its own and notify you when needed. The cameras can also trigger sound and light alarms when motion is detected to scare away unwanted visitors.

Thanks to an integrated microphone and loudspeaker, outward or two-way communication is also possible using the Tapo app.

Color display mode

Additionally, the TP-Link Tapo C420S2 has a color night vision mode as well as a starlight sensor, which should provide a convincing image in the dark. The camera offers 2K QHD resolution and therefore displays a lot of detail.

High-resolution videos can be stored directly on the microSD card installed in the hub with up to 256 GB or via Tapo Care’s cloud storage services for later analysis.

Operation and configuration is also done via the app. Plus, the cameras are compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa, making them easy to integrate into existing smart home setups.

Price and availability

The TP-Link Tapo C420S2 surveillance camera is now available as a dual camera set from retailers such as Amazon. The manufacturer’s MSRP is 249.90 euros.
