I have been using the TP-Link Tapo Pan/Tilt Security Camera for almost two months now and I am loving it. I bought this device as a baby monitor and a pet camera and it has exceeded my expectations. I was hesitant to spend this much on an indoor security camera, but with all the features that the Tapo C200 offers, I consider it well worth the investment.

The installation process was straightforward and simple. It took me only a few minutes to set up the device and connect it to my home Wi-Fi network. Once installed, the camera was up and running within a few seconds. It’s comforting to know that I can keep an eye on my little one and my furry friend from anywhere in the world, as long as I have an internet connection.

One of the standout features of the Tapo C200 is its pan and tilt function, which allows me to see everything in the room. Given its 360° horizontal and 114° vertical range of view, I can easily monitor the entire room from my phone. The motion detection feature is incredibly accurate and the instant push notifications make me feel secure knowing what’s happening at home. Another bonus feature is that I subscribed to Tapo care, which allowed me to detect my baby’s cries.

Another upgraded feature in the Tapo C200 is the two-way audio system that came built-in, allowing me to communicate with my pets or family members in another room. It’s such a convenience to be able to check in, offer comforting words or just say hello while I am away from home. Moreover, the built-in siren has been extremely useful, I can ward off intruders if they get too close to the camera.

The local or cloud storage feature saves all my footage so I can check and review everything at a later time. This is a great bonus when I need to check on what happened when I was away. I like that I have options since I am personally more of a fan of the local storage option. The night vision is also pretty impressive, with 30 ft. of vision on display. I can now keep watch on my baby and pets even when it’s dark, a feature that you can only appreciate when you need it.

The 1080P Full HD camera is excellent, and it provides crystal-clear video both day and night. I can quickly see what my baby is holding or catching sight of what antics my pet is up to. This device's device sharing feature allows me and my spouse to view the camera feed from two different smartphones, so we can both keep an eye on the baby together, and that gives us peace of mind.

Finally, functionally, it works seamlessly with Alexa and Google Assistant. Whenever I want to check on my home camera live stream, I can use my voice command and immediately view the footage. The seamless setup with Alexa and Google Chromecast enables me to display the footage easily from my TV, regardless of the size.

Overall, I think the TP-Link Tapo Pan/Tilt Security Camera is a great investment, and I couldn't be happier with the performance I have seen so far. With added features like Tapo Care and save necessary files of days, I genuinely believe that the Tapo C200 is one of the best cameras for home security indoor use or pet camera.
