Cyber Monday means lots of good deals on all kinds of technology and this includes loads of smart home products, such as security cameras and security systems. In particular, Amazon is offering a discount on TP-Link's Kasa Cam smart security camera which comes with some pretty nice features that should make it worth considering to anyone who is thinking about picking up a security camera with smart home functionality and compatibility with other smart home-related items. Normally the Kasa Cam costs $129.99 at full retail but for the Cyber Monday deal Amazon is slashing $30 off that cost and has brought it down to just $99.99.
One of the best parts about the Kasa Cam is that it supports Amazon Alexa which means you can use your voice to interact with the camera. Just by speaking to Alexa you can bring up the live video feed from the camera on Amazon's Echo Show (the Echo speaker with a display) so that you can see what the camera sees from the screen even if the Echo Show is nowhere near where the camera is set up. It's not mentioned, but this may work with the Alexa app on smartphones as well.
In addition to working with Amazon Alexa the TP-Link Kasa Cam has a 130-degree field of view which means it should have little to no trouble seeing whatever ends up in front of it. With such a wide field of view and less of a chance the camera will miss something you can have a little more peace of mind. The video quality is also 1080p so the images should be nice and sharp and the video recording can continue operating 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, another function that should give you peace of mind as it can always record whatever happens, regardless of where it's placed. The TP-Link Kasa Cam makes a great gift for anyone who already has other Kasa Cams around the home or anyone who is just starting to look into smart home equipment and wants to begin with security cameras.
