After being available in Europe and other regions for quite some time, TP-Link finally launched its affordable and capable Tapo cameras in the US earlier this year. Now, the company is back with its new Tapo C420S2 wireless outdoor security camera.

For those who don’t know, previous offerings like the TP-Link Tapo C320WS offered tons of specs and features at an affordable price. These include a 2k HD resolution camera with color night vision, two-way audio, built-in motion sirens, integrated spotlights, and IP66 water resistance. And while it’s a great home security solution, it does require a wired power connection.

However, the new TP-Link Tapo C420S2 offers all of those same features and more while being completely wireless. Yes, TP-Link has finally gotten rid of the wires, but it promises 180 days of battery life on a single charge. Plus, that battery is either rechargeable or removable, giving users more options than ever before.

This time, the camera has an even larger sensor to capture sharp photos, 2K videos, and night videos. It also supports smart AI detection, notifications for people or pets, and more flexible storage options.

It’s worth noting that TP-Link says this new camera can get you “up to 180 days of battery life,” so your mileage may vary. Depending on the amount of use, recording or using features like two-way audio and spotlights will vary in battery life.

Either way, being able to swap out the battery for a fully charged one quickly makes this a great option over battery. Competitors from Link, Arlo and others.

Buyers will also appreciate the use of TP-Link’s high-capacity outdoor camera with or without a subscription. You can access live recordings locally on the TP-Link hub thanks to the internal microSD or pay for Tapo Care and get cloud video storage.

Unfortunately, while the previous model was $60, it appears that this new model is a bit more expensive. You can get a 2-pack today on Amazon for $199.
