TP-Link has attracted a lot of attention in recent years with its Kasa SmartHome devices, but the line-up has been quite limited so far. The company has announced some new things, including a video doorbell.
The so-called Kasa Smart Video Doorbell can record videos in 2K HDR and has night vision capabilities. It also has a hardware-based face recognition feature that allows the camera to distinguish between people and other objects, and to know who is right at the door, whether the postman, the neighbor or just a stranger. This will be available at some point in the first half of 201
TP-Link also announced the Kasa wireless wireless outdoor security camera system, which is equipped with a fully wireless camera and connects to a supplied hub. The camera can record full 1080p HD video and features night vision and bidirectional audio communication. The system comes with either one, two or three cameras. The price is not yet fixed but will be available in the first half of 2019.
On the outdoor wireless camera system, TP-Link also included the Kasa Smart Spot Indoor Security Camera. This will be available as a budget option in addition to the current regular Kasa Cam. The spot records in 1080p and is suitable for night vision and two-way audio. You can also stream the video feed to Alexa and Google Assistant ads such as Echo Show and Google Home Hub. This will be available for $ 50 in the spring.
In addition to new camera devices, there is also a new intelligent Wi-Fi light switch with voice assistant. It combines what you currently enjoy with the Kasa intelligent light switch, but has a built-in smart speaker with microphone and speaker. So you can use it as a full-featured smart speaker and stream music from it or use it as an intercom with your Kasa video doorbell. It is not known which language assistant he will use (either Alexa or Google Assistant or possibly something else), but we searched for a comment and will update it when we find out. The counter will arrive in the first half of this year, although pricing information is not yet available.
Finally, the company unveiled a new in-wall ($ 40) outlet, and an outdoor Smart Plug comes with two individually controlled containers ($ 45), both of which will be available next month become. Finally, there are Kasa Wi-Fi LED strips with eight individually controlled sections that allow color change and brightness control.
Many more details are not yet known, therefore we will certainly update even more information is available.
