      Smart Wi-fi Light Switch

      Posted
      Zipeedee

      I have four flood lights in my backyard. When switched on they illuminate my whole yard. The only problem is that the switch for them is downstairs next to a sliding glass door and covered by curtains. Many times I wished that when I was upstairs I could turn on the lights to see what was going on in the yard, without having to go downstairs. I know it’s a first world problem, but technology came to my rescue! The TP-Link Smart Wi-fi light switch was the answer to my problems. I already have six TP-Link Wi-fi Plug Minis controlling various devices around my home and the Alexa integration is awesome. The light switch made an awesome addition to my burgeoning smart home. The KASA app does walk you through the installation and I watched a few YouTube videos, however, I had to move a couple of other switches, so I hired an electrician. He was done in just over 10 minutes and my switch was added to my network in just a few minutes after that. I already had a KASA account, so you will need to create one if you don’t have one. You then select that you want to add a Smart Switch. The Wi-Fi light will blink amber and green. You then connect the device to your home network, name your new switch and you’re done! I then launched the Alexa app and added the switch to my devices and now I was able not only able to control the switch via the KASA app, but also from telling Alexa to turn on my flood lights. The KASA app allows you to set up a schedule for your devices. I find the app very intuitive. You can also set up an Away schedule. When in Away Mode, during the period of time, your device will be randomly turned on or off. This will help deter those ne’er-do-wells who might be scoping your home. You can control your lights and switches from anywhere you have access to the internet. Inside the box besides the switch and switch plate are four wire nuts. It comes with 2 year warranty and 24/7 tech support. The switch also works with Google assistant. The only suggestion I would have would be to offer these in different colors. I have some crème colored switches in my kitchen that I would love to “switch” out, but the white would not go with the rest of the kitchen. I will keep my fingers crossed!

      Surprisingly Easy to Setup!

      Compared to the smart plugs and smart light bulbs, I initially felt that installing this switch would be a little intimidating or that I would need a qualified electrician. However, the Kasa App guided me through the entire process, which was surprisingly easy. There are also great videos on Youtube, in case you want a more visual guide or to get a little comfortable with the process before you begin. TP-Link also include wire connectors so you do not need anything extra to install this light switch. Speaking of which, this is not quite a switch, it is more of a button that looks like a switch. It takes some getting used to, when using it in the manual mode. In terms of design, this switch is very sleek and looks modern. This switch is perfect for controlling an array of lights controlled by a single switch, or even devices that do not have a “smart” alternative yet, like a ceiling fan. Alexa integration works great, and the scheduling feature within the KASA App is fantastic. You have so much flexibility in scheduling/automatic/controlling the light switch. Two things that I would like to see in the next model is the ability to dim lights, and also the ability to turn off the LED indicator. Overall, this is a very versatile switch and though it may seem intimidating, both the installation and configuration are very easy. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

      Not compatible with SmartThings

      I decided on purchasing the TP-Link switch after reading reviews that this particular switch did not heat up as much as others switches available. The only complication I encountered with its installation was fitting it into the electrical box. Be advised that all these Smart switches are big in dimensions and tends to occupy a lot of space in a small electrical box full with wires or other switches. Also don’t forget that you need a common or ground wire in order for it work. Connection with Alexa was fast after running a search for new devices. I did download the Kasa app, but I have no use for it since I am using Alexa or a push on the switch. At present I have a SmartThings Hub controlling 6 Philips Hue lights by Alexa and 4 SmartThings multipurpose sensors which turns on all lights and sends alerts if one of the doors are open or motions is detected within the house. Now it just so happens that my new TP-Link Wireless Smart Switch is not presently compatible with SmartThings, therefore SmartThings cannot operate the light it is connect to. This explains my rating of only 3 Stars. Would give it a better rating if compatible with SmartThings.

      Not ready for IFTTT but a good switch

      I bought this based on other reviews and the fact that it is now advertised as being IFTTT ready. You would assume that being a smart switch you could control the smart plug remotely with this smart switch in the same way you can with the Belkin and other brands. Not so. I went ahead and installed it based on the better reviews and overall feel and function. If you don't want to use a voice activated service such as Alexa or Google Assistant or use a hub you need to automate using IFTTT. This is easy if you buy the Belkin, the actions and triggers are both present for the plug and the switch. For the TP-Link only the actions are present, not the triggers. This makes it currently impossible to build your own applet. There are very few other published applets and they are based on location proximity or time of day predominantly. Hopefully they get their act together soon as it seems to be a really nice switch. One note, my plug, like other reviewers stated, said it was previously installed so I needed to reset it. I don't believe it was returned as the box had the original shrink wrap that matched the switches. I carefully looked it over and it seemed brand new. I suspect something is amiss at the factory and is causing these to register as having been previously configured. This will be a 5-star product when the IFTTT works.

      Smart Switch that works well with good SW

      I was looking at various options, mostly on amazon and home depot, but came across this TP-Link which was priced competitively at Best Buy and available same day. I bought this to replace a switch that had a digital timer built in, but wanted more control and ease of programming it, especially when the day light savings time changes. This fit the bill and felt that the app (I'm using the android version) is better than other smart home plug devices. There are cheaper no name brands made in China and the software/app is a bit questionable and I don't feel very secure when giving my contact info, but TP-Link's seems legit with an actual website, good interface, and full support. I have this smart switch connected to my porch light. It has a nice vacation feature too where it will turn on and off the light at random times to mimic an actual person turning the switch on and off. It's not the cheapest smart switch that's out there, but you pay a little extra for a quality built product with good software, support, and instructions. I felt this was important especially when you are wiring something directly to your house. Buying at Best Buy gave the option of getting it same day and option to return if it didn't work out. Make sure you have a neutral wire in order to use this.

      Smart light perfection

      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      The new Echo compatibility works well and allows grouping controllers under a single group name. Using the assigned groups you can control more than on device at the same time! TP-LINK support for the HS200 is extremely easy with the use of the KASA app. The devices easily integrate with Alexa with no issues. The controllers can be configured with Kasa to be connected away from home or locally. To be controlled by Echo each individual controller must be set to Remote Control ON, in the Device Settings menu. The light switch is easy to manage but installation for me was difficult not because of wiring but because I have an older home with smaller space for wiring behind the light switch. I did manage to test the device though but wasn't able to fit it for use after testing. Installation is easy though and it does lay out and suggest if your not comfortable with wiring to seek an electrician. The button on the front controls lights off by turning off the WI-FI!

      I did a lot of research before deciding to deploy this technology. I chose it because I don't need a separate hub and because I can control it with Alexa. As an added bonus, it can accept IFTTT triggers from my Arlo cameras so I can turn on lights when one of the cameras detects motion. This is great because the IR picture on the cameras is OK but not very high resolution. Being able to turn on the nearest light when a camera detects and records motion is a big plus. These switches are quite easy to install and set up if you have basic electrical and wifi technology skills. The TP-Link Kasa app guides you through it very well. After the first one I didn't even need to consult the app for wiring instructions. If you are looking for a two pole solution (two light switches to control one light/set of lights) TP-Link now makes that solution as well although BestBuy doesn't yet carry it. It is the TP-Link HS210 kit. I have installed 7 single pole (HS200) switches and 4 double pole (HS210) kits and they all work quite well. I can control all of them from Alexa or my phone app. I have my three ceiling fans running on a schedule so I don't have to remember to turn them on or off at various times of the day.

      Elegant design; good price; works as expected

      Pros - 1. looks nicer (in appearance) than its competitor products 2. step-by-step installation instruction in the Kasa app 3. Works with both Google Assistant and Alexa (no concerns if I want to switch my smart home speaker/assistant) 4. Kasa has a complete collection of smart devices (common switch, 3-way, dimmable, etc.). I have a few ordinary 3-way switches at home and I'm considering replacing them with Kasa (while other brands generally don't offer smart 3-way switches) Cons (why not 5-star) - 1. Flaws in the Kasa app (but do not affect its functionality) 1.1. It doesn't consider the corner case where my WiFi goes out as I turn off the circuit breaker while installing the smart switch. The app repeatedly asked for WiFi connection, producing frustrating user experience 1.2. The Kasa app doesn't track the sunrise / sunset time in my location (as far as I know, timestamp at 2018/07/28) Bought 4 so far. Will give updates on their durability / other aspects in the future.
