    I bought a few of these to upgrade my whole house. You need to make sure you can use a dimmer light for this switch. It was a learning curve but we made it work.

    As a dimmer switch it works fine but I have yet to get this switch to work with Siri. Maybe it's me but I've tried everything. Pretty disappointed with it.

    Super Switch

    The smart switch is great. The installation was fairly easy, tight fit with all the the wires in a 2 gang box but after some rearranging and consolidation I was able to fit this in as well as a non-dimmable switch on the other gang. I removed the face plates and used a 2 gang face place. The setup was so easy. Not one issue came up either the setup which is refreshing. The app is easy to use. The dimming is nice and smooth. The switch itself could be made of thicker plastic (told the kids to press it lightly) and there could be metal reinforcement at the mounting holes so you don’t crack it if over tightening (the mount holes for the face plate are reinforced with metal). Overall, I’m very satisfied so far. Will setup with HomeKit at some point and can’t wait to try out Away mode. TP Link needs to make a 3-way switch version. Nearly all switches in my home are 3-way.

    Tapo Smart Switch That Matters

    Have used TP-Link Smart Switches on a few homes, however this was my first experience with TP-Link "Tapo with Matter" ..., and I LIKE IT. IMO, the Android Tapo App and Tapo devices links up faster than standard TP-Link stuff. After a while, the Tapo Matter app also found legacy TP-Link equipment. Additionally, after rebooting my smart system post storm power loss, everything linked back together up nicely. My chief complaint is how the Tapo App jumbles all the device icons on the home screen. It's nice to see all devices there, but too easy to select the wrong item with big thumbs on a standard phone screen.

    A Game-Changer for Smart Lighting!

    I recently upgraded my home's lighting system with the Tapo Smart WiFi Light Dimmer Switch, and I must say, it has truly transformed the way I experience lighting in my living space. Here's why I'm giving it four stars: 1. **Easy Installation: ⭐⭐⭐⭐** The installation process was surprisingly straightforward. Even for someone with limited electrical expertise like myself, the step-by-step instructions and included hardware made it a breeze. I had it up and running within 30 minutes. 2. **Intuitive App Control: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐** The accompanying mobile app is user-friendly and offers a wide range of features. I can easily adjust the brightness levels, set schedules, and even create different lighting scenes for various occasions. The ability to control the lights remotely adds a level of convenience that I didn't realize I was missing. 3. **Compatibility and Integration: ⭐⭐⭐⭐** This dimmer switch seamlessly integrates with popular smart home ecosystems like Alexa and Google Assistant. The compatibility is a huge plus, as I can now incorporate it into my existing smart home setup without any issues. The responsiveness to voice commands is particularly impressive. 4. **Sturdy Build and Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐** The build quality of the switch itself is commendable. It feels sturdy and well-made, and the sleek design adds a touch of modernity to my home decor. The touch-sensitive controls are responsive, and the LED indicator is a helpful visual cue for the current dimming level. In summary, the switch has significantly enhanced my home lighting experience. While it may not be perfect (hence the four-star rating), its overall performance, ease of use, and integration capabilities make it a fantastic addition to any smart home. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade their lighting system and enjoy the benefits of smart home technology.

    Good switch marred by poor setup and accessibility

    From a functionality standpoint, the switch works well with Apple's HomeKit. The install could've gone much better, and their app is not very accessible. When we went to install it, the documentation really wanted you to create an account with them, a process that was long and painful, made worse by the app not working with VoiceOver. I'm visually-impaired and it took my spouse and her good vision to get the job done, which is not something I expect when operating in the Apple ecosystem. It looks like TP-Link used a universal app development platform (iOS and Android), so it works poorly with Apple's assistive features. We went that route, because despite mention of HomeKit, we did not find the setup code anythware until after we were done and pretty annoyed that there was no support, when the little sticker slid out of the box where it had been stuck, with the backing partly peeled off. It looked very much like an afterthought. Most vendrs at least put the code on an easy-to-find card. (In addition, the app's "calibration" feature for dimming would not work. No matter how hard we tried, but luckily it seems to work fine anyway.) Once we put it in the Home app, it's worked very well. It responds to Siri, and makes life much easier. So, overall it works well, but the setup process and the app need works.

    Transform Your Home

    I recently upgraded my home lighting with the TP-Link Tapo Smart Wi-Fi Light Dimmer Switch, and I must say, it has completely transformed the way I interact with my lights. The installation process was a breeze, thanks to the user-friendly setup guide and intuitive app. Within minutes, I had the switch installed and connected to my Wi-Fi network, allowing me to control my lights from anywhere using my smartphone or voice commands via my smart assistant. The dimming functionality is a game-changer, allowing me to create the perfect ambiance for any occasion, whether it's a cozy movie night or a lively dinner party. I love being able to adjust the brightness levels with just a few taps on my phone, without ever having to get up from the couch. The compatibility with Matter is a welcome addition, ensuring seamless integration with other smart home devices and platforms. Whether I'm using Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, or Google Assistant, the Tapo Smart Wi-Fi Light Dimmer Switch plays nicely with my existing ecosystem, allowing for a truly connected home experience. However, my only minor gripe with this otherwise fantastic product is that occasionally, there's a slight delay when turning the switch on or off. While it's not a dealbreaker by any means, it would be nice if the response time were a bit quicker for a more seamless user experience. Overall, the TP-Link Tapo Smart Wi-Fi Light Dimmer Switch is a game-changer for anyone looking to modernize their home lighting setup. With its easy installation, versatile functionality, and seamless integration with Matter, it's a must-have for anyone seeking convenience, comfort, and control over their home lighting. Despite the occasional delay, I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade their home with smart lighting technology.

    Just Works

    I've been getting into the smart home and wanted to start hard wiring some switches up. TP-Link came up in my search with some reasonably priced switches, so I went ahead and pulled the trigger on a basic on/off switch a few months ago. It worked great! Now I wanted to find a smart dimmable switch and saw TP-Link made those, so I got those. So far, they have been great! I followed the instructions to wire them up and they have been great ever since. I have them wired to some LED bulbs and they seem to dim them appropriately. I have wired them to another set of LED's and they work, but turn off the bulbs when the dimmer shows they are around the 50% mark. Still, for the quick compatibility they work. I highly recommend if you've been looking for a smart switch that is Matter compatible. I have them hooked up to Apple Home and have had no issues with them.

    Needed to replace a dimmer switch for the kitchen recessed lights (a combination of old PAR30 halogen/LEDs, and modern screw-in retrofit LED's flat panels. I was persuaded by the price, brand, Wi-Fi capabilities, and positive reviews. Thought that installation could be challenging, but it actually was equal to an old-fashioned light switch; and the Wi-Fi/app. programing was intuitive and easy.

    I needed a HomeKit compatible wifi switch for my office since the switch location was inconvenient. The install was simple, although this switch does take up more space than standard single pole. Easy integration with HomeKit. Dims lights as expected. Has worked flawlessly since install.

    Switch is relatively easy to install, it looks and feels good to use. You do need a neutral to set it up. Once setup it can be configured via bluetooth in the Tapo app pretty seamlessly. Happy with the purchase and got it at a relatively good price when initially it came on BestBuy portal for sale.

    Installation went okay. I followed instructions but initially couldn't get it to power on. I turned you getting an electrician out to install it, who told me that I mixed up the line and load. It worked afterwards. Connecting Matter worked well and waa easy. The annoying thing is that if I click the switch to quickly (not a matter of how hard I press, but rather how briefly) the switch does not recognize it. This was not an issue with my Kasa switches. Not a big problem but you have to make sure to click it for what seems to be more than a third of a second.
