The TP-Link earned a full five-star rating and an Expert Reviews Best Buy award in our original review, which is the highest praise we can bestow.

In our TP-Link Tapo D230S1 review, it distinguished itself from its competitors with a comprehensive array of features that make it a top contender for those seeking functionality without the ties of a subscription. It comes complete with everything needed for setup: the doorbell unit, a plug-in chime, all necessary mounting fixtures and even an angled wedge for optimal placement, ensuring you can install it straight out of the box​​​​.

Although we described the design as chunky and somewhat plasticky, it’s the internal capabilities that truly shine. The Tapo D230S1 offers a 2K resolution camera at 15fps with a 160-degree field of view, ensuring broad and detailed coverage of your doorstep. It also boasts two-way audio, allowing for clear communication with visitors. For night-time security, the doorbell provides two modes of vision: a colour night vision enabled by an LED light and a monochrome infrared option, giving you flexibility in how you monitor your home in low-light conditions​​.

Setup is straightforward, albeit a bit different from standard video doorbells. It requires the Tapo app and uses a “Sub-GHz” RF connection to the chime unit, which then connects to your router. For those preferring a subscription-free experience, the chime houses a microSD card slot for local storage, supporting up to 512GB, although a 32GB or 64GB card is typically sufficient​​.
