    TP-Link has announced two additions to its Kasa Smart Home product line.

    TP-Link’s new Kasa Cam Outdoor Camera is built within a IP65 rated casing designed to withstand the elements, operating within temperatures ranging from -4˚F to 109˚F. The camera provides a 130° field of view at 1080p and night vision range up to 30 feet, while customizable activity zone settings and motion detection features help Kasa customers fine tune activities the camera records.

    For audio, the Kasa Cam comes with push-to-talk two-way audio communication, as well as a built-in 80db alarm to deter intruders.

    With free cloud storage for up to two days, content from the Kasa Cam Outdoor Camera is viewable from the Kasa Smart mobile app or smart devices like the Amazon Spot, Fire TV, or Google Chromecast, while other storage plans stretch retention time to 14 and 30 days.

    Lastly, the kit includes a magnetic camera mount and mounting wall plate for additional installation options.

    TP-Link also introduced its latest smart plug. Called the Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug, 2-Outlets, the new smart plug lets customers control two connected items together or independently, using the Kasa Smart mobile app, via voice commands sent to Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Microsoft Cortana (no hub required), or using predetermined schedules and scenes. Considered a heavy-duty smart plug, the Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug, 2-Outlets supports a wider range of electrical appliances, ranging from lamps to portable A/Cs, powering up to 15A.

    The Kasa Cam Outdoor Security Camera and Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug, 2-Outlets are available for pre-order on Amazon, priced at $139.99 and $39.99, respectively.

    is it fully self contained? By that i mean power, wifi, etc. Thing about outdoor security, if cutting the cord/power can make it not work or record, then how is it going to help the cops catch intruders?
    Since it uses 1080p thats good, it would be nice to see the image quality in the shade.
