Can I replace my existing doorbell with TP-Link Doorbell---Check Tapo Doorbell Compatibility

Replace your existing doorbell with a Tapo doorbell and answer your door from anywhere with your phone. However, not all doorbell systems are compatible with the Tapo doorbell. Your existing doorbell button must be a stand-alone momentary push button. Integrated intercoms, gate systems, and entry controls are likely incompatible.

The voltage and power should fall within the required range below. If not, you can contact a professional to upgrade your doorbell system.
