Thanks to Alexa Integration, we can watch a live feed of the Tapo camera on Amazon Echo Show, Echo Spot or Fire TV with an Amazon Fire stick. If you have one of the above three Amazon devices, you can connect your Tapo camera in the Alexa app and display the live feed on the Amazon device with voice commands.


Tapo Camera control commands:

The following Amazon Alexa voice commands are supported by the Tapo camera at present.

Show the camera live feed:

“Alexa, show me the [Camera Name]”

Stop the camera live feed:

“Alexa, Hide the [Camera Name]”

Currently, the Tapo camera doesn’t support “camera on/off” command due to possible security risks. For example, an intruder could potentially shut off your cameras with a simple command.

*Note: “Camera Name” is user-defined in the Tapo App.


The length of time you can stream the live feed on Amazon devices

Watching the live feed of Tapo cameras through Amazon Alexa will use your internet traffic as it’s a Cloud-to-Cloud service. In consideration of your extranet traffic and performance, the live feed will stop automatically after 10 minutes. However, you can ask Alexa to show the camera again if you want to continue streaming.
