How to configure the Notification feature for the Tapo & Kasa devices on the Tapo app
With the Notification feature configured on the Tapo app, you can decide whether to receive notifications on your phone. Here is the detailed instruction to configure the Notification feature on the Tapo app.
Part 1. Notification Settings for all smart devices
On the Tapo app>>Me>>Notifications page, you are able to change the Notification Settings.
1) You can tap System Notifications to toggle On/Off the Device Sharing, Firmware Update, and New Device Found options to decide whether to receive these notifications on your phone.
2) You can toggle On/Off the Promotions to decide whether to receive exclusive offers, VIP giveaways, and new product notifications.
3) If you enable the Device and go to the Management page, you can turn On/Off the switch beside the smart device to decide whether to receive notifications about it.
4) Tap the Do Not Disturb feature and when it is enabled, you won't receive notifications during the scheduled time on your phone. Tap Exceptions>>Add Devices to add devices if you want to receive notifications from them during Do Not Disturb.
Note: Notifications like water leaks or doorbell thefts still work during the scheduled time.
Part 2. Notification Settings for Tapo & Kasa Cameras
If you want to receive push notifications on your phone when the Tapo & Kasa Cameras detect events, please refer to the following steps to set up the Notification feature on the Tapo app.
Here we take Tapo C200 as an example.

Turn off the Do Not Disturb feature or add your camera to the Exceptions page.

Step 3. On the Live View page, tap the icon on the top right corner to enter the Device Settings page.
Step 4. Click on Notifications on the Device Settings page.
Step 5. Enable Activity Notifications and Rich Notifications as per your desire.
Tap Activity Type to select the detection types for which you want to receive push notifications.
Note: Currently, some Camera models do not have the Activity Type feature, and you will receive all types of notifications when the camera detects events.
