Kasa Smart Continues to Deliver Simple and Innovative Smart Home
Offerings with Kasa Cam Outdoor Security Camera and Kasa Smart Wi-Fi
Plug, 2-Outlets

Kasa Smart by TP-Link,
a leading consumer smart home brand, today unveiled the Kasa
Cam Outdoor Security Camera
and the Kasa
Smart Wi-Fi Plug, 2-Outlets
, furthering the brand's aim to make the
smart home more accessible. The new security camera brings simplified
security to the outdoors, and the new smart Wi-Fi plug is the first in
the TP-Link lineup to provide an added smart plug outlet for dual use
from a single socket. The Kasa Cam Outdoor Security Camera and Kasa
Smart Wi-Fi Plug, 2-Outlets
are available for pre-order on
Amazon.com and will be shipping at the end of August.

"Kasa Smart has become a dependable smart home brand with a growing
portfolio of quality products, providing a variety of app-enabled
solutions that give you remote control of your home from anywhere," said
David Li, CEO of TP-Link Research America Corp. "The addition of a
weather-resistant security camera and a dual-outlet smart plug brings
our customers even greater flexibility and ease in how they monitor
their homes and control their devices."

Building on the success of the Kasa Cam Indoor for in-home security, the
easy-to-install Kasa Cam Outdoor is a weather-resistant security camera
with crystal-clear 1080p streaming video, crisp two-way audio and a
night vision range of 30 feet, including the option to zoom in if you
need a closer look. The free Kasa Smart app gives you a live view and
instantly alerts you whenever it detects motion or sounds. Kasa Smart
cameras, including the Kasa Cam Indoor and Kasa Cam Outdoor, have near
real time video streaming latency when the camera and the Kasa Smart app
are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This improves streaming and
reduces lag making it useful when you are expecting a package delivery
or when receiving an alert of an unwanted visitor. The app also allows
you to activate a built-in siren to deter intruders or simply use
two-way audio to talk to a delivery person, if you're running late to
the door.

Kasa Cam Outdoor offers improvements to eliminate unwanted alerts and
recordings. From a moving tree branch on a windy day to bugs flying by,
outdoor cameras encounter a number of motion events and can record
several unwanted video clips. Kasa Cam offers two key features with
flexible settings to ensure users get alerts and recordings that are
important to them:

  • Activity Zones: users choose an area in the camera field of
    view where motion should be detected while ignoring the rest, like
    moving tree branches.
  • Motion Duration Detection: ignores fast micro second motion
    events that can be triggered by a flying bug or other objects that
    appear for a split second.

Once the camera records a video clip, the downloadable video is stored
in the Kasa Smart cloud and can be viewed in the Kasa Smart app for up
to two full days, for up to three cameras, at no additional cost; 14-day
and 30-day subscription plans are available as well in case you need
longer than the free 2 days cloud storage.

Kasa Smart is also introducing the Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug, 2-Outlets,
allowing you to have smart control of plug-in lamps, fans and other
appliances. No matter where you are, you can access your plug-in devices
using the Kasa Smart mobile app, and when at home you can enjoy the
convenience of voice control capabilities through integrations with
Amazon Alexa, Google Home or Microsoft Cortana voice assistant.

Thanks to the ability to create schedules or scenes, you can also
schedule devices to turn on and off at predetermined times. For example,
schedule your stereo to turn on first thing in the morning to wake you
up, and schedule it to turn off when you usually leave for work. Having
remote control access can give you peace of mind, allowing you to
remotely turn off an appliance, like a curling iron left on at home, or
schedule traditional lights to turn on or off as a security measure
whenever you're out of town.
