    Not buying Wemo anymore

    Been using Wemo’s for a long time but not anymore. These work great, dont require a hub and are much less costly.

    Once installed, they’re great…

    UPDATE 03/21/2017: Knocking off a star…They don’t self-cycle after an outage… Doing some home improvement projects and I have to periodically kill the power to do electrical work. After powering the house back up, the switches don’t automatically reconnect to the wireless network. Fortunately, there’s a scan button (kind of hidden–it’s in the metal trim below the switch, on the right). Quick press and it’ll start the switch scanning the wifi network… 30 seconds later, the switch should be back online (that is, if your wifi network is back online, too). A minor nuisance, but the reason I’m knocking off a full star is the nuisance combined with the fact that there’s no rhyme or reason to it… Sometimes all of the switches will need to be reset, sometimes only a few (one or two DID self-cycle). If you lose power, you may be wandering around your house resetting switches, which kinda kills the whole remote/Alexa experience.UPDATE: 3/15/2017: Alexa integration was non-existent, then betterOur Dots came and I set up the network…strike that, I FOUGHT with my network for 3+ hours. The connection between the switches/plugs and the Dots were sporadic to non-existent, at best. I was ready to throw in the towel (box all of the switches and the Dots back up for a return, and reduce to 1 star), when I decided to fully reset my wifi router, just as a test. After reset, I went into the router software and tweaked with the wifi channels (reset from “Auto” for Channel Selection to “6”–recommended channels are “1”, “6” or “11”). This seems to have made all of the difference in the world. The switches/Alexa combo work great now… OK, truth told, we get about 80%-90% accuracy now. Keeping the same score for now, and will update if it gets better/worse.COMMENT TO POTENTIAL BUYERS: After a bunch of connectivity/wifi research and troubleshooting, I came to the conclusion that it’s a “2.4 GHz Thing”. Unfortunately, these switches work exclusively on a 2.4 GHz wifi signal. The thing is, so does EVERYTHING ELSE, including all of your neighbors’ wifi, and all of their gear, all of which is hammering this frequency and creating potential conflicts. A lot of us have access to a 5 GHz wifi signal as well… This is a lot cleaner (and faster), and how Echo recommends how you set up your Alexa-device for the best connection. You may want to shop around for a switch that is compatible with 5 GHz (or wait ’til that technology exists).ORIGINAL REVIEW:The concept behind these things is great… However, getting them installed can be a chore if your house isn’t exactly new, or you’re putting them into a shared switch box. My tip? Don’t let your excitement about implementing something “cool” stop you from planning ahead!At the office last week and one of my coworkers busted out his phone to show me the latest upgrades he’d made to his house… He’d set up a “Smart Home” using a bunch of these and integrating Alexa via a couple of Echo Dots. I was impressed and really wanted the same in our house. So, I bought 4 of these, a couple of the Smart Plugs (HS100 — https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0178IC734/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_16) and two Echo Dots. Last April, we purchased a 1,650 sqft house built in 1959 that had recently–in the past 4 years or so–gone through a pretty big remodel, inside and out. I’m an avid DIY-er, and consider myself pretty handy (I have plenty of experience with electrical work around the house). The main place I wanted to install one of these guys was in the kitchen. The placement of the only light switch for these lights is anything but ideal… From any of the bedrooms (back of the house) or the living room (off of the kitchen), you have to walk across a dark room to get to the switch. So, to be able to just say, “Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights” would be awesome! The kitchen switch also lives in a gang box with two other switches… the dining area light, as well as the game/bonus room that’s opposite the living room (on the other side of the kitchen). I pulled the plate off of that box and removed the switches, and… surprise, surprise, a rat’s nest of wiring, in–you guessed it–a shallow, old-school metal gang box. No way in was that big, bulky tp-link switch going to fit in there, ESPECIALLY (as other reviewers have pointed out) with the three bulky wire screws necessary for the connection with these. Not to be defeated, I headed to Home Depot, bought a deeper 3-wide switch gang box and spent the next 3+ hours that day doing everything necessary to replace the existing metal box. (And, a couple hours over the next couple of days replacing the drywall I had to remove to get to the box!) Fortunately, the remaining three switch boxes had been “upgraded” during the recent remodel, and they were deep enough to house the tp-link switches (some just barely though, as they were sharing the box with another switch).So, don’t be an impatient goof like me, and plan ahead. Remove the wall plate and the switch to determine if there’s enough room to house this thing, BEFORE you buy one. Look at the dimensions for this thing, and also add about a ½” for the wire screw connections.Another point of contention (that others have brought up in reviews, too): A regular wall plate won’t sit flush with the wall with these. The trim edge around the actual switch is (maybe) a 1/16” wide. So, once bolted into the gangbox, that 1/16” interferes with the wall plate, leaving a gap between the plate and the wall. This is ESPECIALLY a nuisance if you’re putting one of these into a box with existing switches (with the regular switches bolted in flush, they’ll be uneven with the tp-link, and you can easily crack the wall plate when trying to bolt it in). Some folks have recommended trimming out excess plastic from the back of the wall plate where it comes in contact with the tp-link switch, but that’s a hassle (and my wall plates didn’t have any definitive spots I could trim out).*IF* you’re installing one of these to replace a single switch, in a single gang box, in a house with newer, deeper gang boxes, and you’re fine using the provided plate, I’m sure they’re easy-peasy to install! That’s a lot of if’s, though… So, that’s why “four stars”.Dots are on “backorder” (for about a month), so I’m reserving judgment on that setup until I can get it installed. However, the TP-Link Kasa App is easy to set up and use, and has a lot of nice little features… I especially like the ability to set up “Scenes” using groups of switches/plugs. I’ve set up one to turn on various lights in the house when we’re away from home, all at the click of a single button. It’s also fun messing with my wife, turning off the kitchen lights from my phone, when I’m on the other side of the house! 

    Little bit of a problem installing but OK

    Took a while to install this one because we had to find the extra wire that is needed to make this run. Once it was installed, it works perfectly with the app and with Alexa. Has the dimming feature, which although I didn’t need, might come in handy down the road all in all, I would buy one again

    Great Simple Switch for Uncomplicated Setups.

    These are fantastic switches if you just need a basic on/off switch. The switch will not work if you have 2 or more switches controlling the same light (3-way switching).I’ve installed tons of switches, lights, electrical boxes and plugs and I found these to be exactly as easy as any other switch to install. A nice touch is that the pre-attached wires on the back of the box are already exposed and the ends are soldered so there’s a nice surface to attach to the existing home wires. You need to verify that the box you’re planning to install the switch in is of standard depth and now shallow before ordering because these switches are very deep. You also need to make sure there’s a common wire in the switch box you’re updating. This is usually a white wire that is capped to another white wire in the box and not connected to the current switch. Regular light switches don’t use this wire, it just by-passes in the box. You will usually have this wire if there are two sets of wire coming into the box at the switch. Some switches are at the end of the line on a circuit and they will have both the white and black wire already connected to the switch. In that case, when the white wire is connected to the switch, the white wire is NOT A COMMON WIRE. It’s only a common wire if it’s NOT CONNECTED to a traditional switch. I hope that helps with some of the confusion I’ve seen in other comments. As for the other important things about electrical work like turning off the breaker, please make sure you have some type of voltage meter or power line detector. Just because the light goes out doesn’t always mean that there are not live wires in the box. Some boxes have more than one circuit running thru them.Pros:1. Install took me about 5 minutes per switch and I installed 3 of them and got them added to Kasa in under an hour.2. The quality of the touch and feel of the switch is really nice.3. The lights on the switch are small and dim and not too noticeable from across the room, but are useful when setting up4. The time between turning the light on/off in the app and when the switch completes the task is under a second – Very fast5. The switch makes a slightly audible “click” when you touch it and if you turn it on/off with the app. That’s a really nice touch.6. These are white switches with white covers and the cover is of very high quality7. As with all the TP-Link Smart home stuff, you can take a picture to use as a label in the app – this helps when you have 17 devices like I have in the home8. Works with Alexa and so far has been flawless9. Easy to mix with the TP-Link bulbs (though pointless on the same light) and plugs so that you can control everything from one app and alexa.10. Scheduled on/off times that can be linked to Sunrise and Sunset. This is PERFECT for my porch light that I leave on all night for security sake.Cons:1. Does not do 3-way switching – If you want to do a more advanced setup, there is a way to wire the current 3-way switch so that one switch is always on or bypassed. This will effectively make the TP-Link switch the only working switch on the circuit, but I don’t love that solution.2. Does not Dim – when in a group of dimmable lights under alexa the switch will turn off if you select any amount of dimming when you ask alexa to turn it on. For example: “Alexa, turn on Dining Room at 100%” will cause the dimmable light bulbs to turn on, but these switches will not. If the light is already on when you give this command it will actually turn off. I’d prefer that the switch just turn on regardless of what dimming percentage you use.3. The switch is deep and with pre-attached wires it can take up a lot of room in a crowded electrical box.4. The tabs on the top and bottom of the switch that allow you to screw it to the box and a cover to it are thicker than a normal plugs. This means that if you use a different switch cover (like one for 2 or more switches side-by-side) this switch will sometimes push the cover forward causing there to be a slight gap between the cover and wall. Not enough for me to be disappointed by it, but enough that my OCD is a little tweeked.I would recommend these to anyone. They’re perfect for my porch lights, and for any HID or other special over-head light that you have that can’t be dimmed. If you’re looking for a solution that can be dimmed these are not for you. I ordered one extra on accident and I’m installing it at a friend’s house this weekend to try and also get him hooked on this stuff :)Welcome to the future!

    Very easy to install and it’s nice having all the options as far as setting timers, setting schedules, or being able to turn your lights on when you’re out of your house. Just one warning is that it is slightly bulky so sometimes it is a little difficult when you are installing to get all of the wires situated inside the box.

    Was easy to put in and setup was a snap since we have other Kasa products already on our network. I added a wall plate for 4 gang since it only came with a single gang plate (normal). I wish they sold normal toggle switches though instead of these rocker style. This one powers our outside down lighting on the ease of the roof.I love the automatic schedule the most and the ease of application use. The software is without issues – EVER.

    Easy to install and easy to program

    bought two and installed in my kitchen and living room. took no more than 10-12 minutes – pretty simple, just uninstall old switch, connect 3 wires and screw them in. Programming was breeze and no issues.connected to my google assistant, and works like a charm. easy to control, easy to set up a timer.

    Bright Ideas, One Wire Hitch

    Got the Kasa Apple HomeKit Smart Light Switch KS200 – it’s like living in the future! Love controlling lights from my phone, especially when I’m feeling extra lazy. Scheduling is a game-changer too, but here’s the kicker – you need that neutral wire. If your place isn’t wired up like a spaceship, installation might be a bit of a hassle. Still, once it’s in, it’s lights out for inconvenience and lights on for smart living. Worth the wire dance!

    It works

    I’m lazy and I bought it for my bedroom so I don’t have to get out of bed to turn the light off (switch is the other side of the room). It’s a bit too big for my box, so the screws don’t line up with the holes on my box but I’m just glad it works. I’ll figure out how to secure it to the wall later, for now it’s just hanging slightly.

    Amazon Alexa fails to acknowledge it

    It’s set up properly but Alexa says it doesn’t exist. Works fine from Kasa app.Depends on how big an issue this is so I can only recommend if one doesn’t care about Alexa being nasty to its cousins.

    The Kasa HS200 Light Switch has scheduled or manual operation remotely, manual local operation

    I really like the Kasa HS200, Single Pole Wi-Fi Light Switch. Just check your switch box for a neutral before ordering. If the power enters the switch box before sending a switch leg to the light, then you have a neutral. For scheduled operation an on/off program can be generated easily using trigger, action phrases in the Kasa app. The switch can also be turned on or off remotely using the Kasa app or Google Home. The device integrates well with Google Home. (I don’t use Alexa or other voice control.) I find the schedule feature hard to find in the app, but it’s there and it works. The switch itself is not a toggle switch. You push the bottom once to turn on and again to turn off. Each push generates a click. It keeps track of the state internally so that, for instance, someone can turn a light on manually, but a schedule program can turn it off at a certain time. There’s no need for it to flip a toggle to turn off.

    Kasa Products are Great !!!

    Really like switches. Easy to install ( must have neutral white wire to work). The app is easy to use and add more switches, lights and outlets that Kase makes. Nice to control all from phone. Schedule on off times or just push to on/off. Easy to set with WI-FI and easy to add more items to app.

    Easy install with basic electrical knowledge

    If you’re not comfortable working with live wires, get yourself an electrician.I for one like to DIY. I wasn’t taking any chances. I shut the power to the whole house. Also, you’d want to have a handy dandy voltage test pen just in case. After all that, got my kasa wires link up to my wall wires and was able to safely turn the whole house on with no issues. Best of luck! I’ve enjoyed all my smart plugs from KASA so it was a no brainer to add these smart switches to the collection.

    Needs a neutral wire

    I wanted to use this switch because my wifi plugs are from Tp-link and I could use the same app to control it. Unfortunately Tp-link doesn’t make a switch that a neutral wire is not required.Check the switch you want to replace before purchasing.My house was built in the 50s and sometimes older homes have this, non-neutral wire, wiring.The switch was going to be used for my outdoor flood lights located on my detached garage. So when wiring it they only ran one 14/2 wire, unusable for this application. The picture above doesn’t have a neutral.SO, MAKE SURE you have the neutral wire needed. It would have been a good switch.

    Love these switches!! Works with Mesh wifi!

    Went from Wemo smart switches to two of these. Amazing!! This is why:1. Works perfectly with mixed 2.4G/5.0GHz Mesh wifi systems (Netgear Orbi 940)2. Easy to install3. All programming features in app, on Android: Timers, Scheduled events (inc sunrise/sunset)4. Alexa integration works perfectly.Honestly, best smart switches I’ve ever used. So many are more complex, but these are super simple and work. Android app is great.

    An Easy way to control multiple devices on a single circuit.

    I made the jump to a “Smart Home” a little over a month ago after Alexa joined our family. After talking to some friends, doing some research and assesing my needs I settled on TP-Link because of the variety of Smart products they offered, no requirements for a Hub, the lower cost and the ability to control everything from one simple app on my Smart phone and Amazon”s Alexa. I have not been disappointed. After a very short learning curve, I surprisingly found the installation and set-up of all the TP-Link Smart devices extremely easy and intuitive. I have installed several different Smart devices including three different bulbs (LB-100, 120 & 130) depending on the area, as well as, Smart Switches (HB-200) and Smart Plugs. All of it has installed, programed and worked with few problems. The only criticism I have is the Kasa App. I have found it to be a bit bugy at times, but since I use it primarily for programming and setting up new devices and scenes, rather than operationally, it has not been an issue since Alexa handels most of that work. So far, in the six weeks my Smart Home has been in operation I have only had one problem where Alexa and the Kasa app lost communication with most of (but not all) of my TP-Link devices. But after a bit of head scratching I was able to restore communication. So here’s a tip to remember: I first tried rebooting the devices by cycling the power breaker, but that didn’t work. Probably due to multiple devices signaling simultaneously and overloading Kasa. But, powering each device down for a few seconds then back up, and testing it before moving on ro the next one worked without a problem. I also recommend using a different control application. I only have experience with Amazon Alexa, but it also interfaces with Google Home among others. I have found that controlling scenes from Kasa not to be reluable for some reason, while issuing the scene commands to Alexa works 90% of the time, with repeating the command becoming necessary about 10% of the time. But even with an occasional repeated command being necessary, TP-Link devices respond extremely well through Alexa’s control. Plus Alexa is able to easily “group” multiple devices so you can control areas with a single command, or program macro activities that Alexa can perform with a single command. Capabilities Kasa does not have. This is another deficiency of the Kasa app. Without the ability to group devices or run macro routines, it relies on programmed scenes which are very limiting for operational control. So another controlling app like Alexa or Home is essential to the TP-Link Smart Home system. For me, because I have Alexa for operational control, both at home and away, these short comings in the Kasa app are non-issues. But if I didnt have this capability I think I would look to a different Hub controlled platform for my Smart Home lighting and device control.HS-200 Smart Switch: I am a retired electrician, so I found the installation easy. Most DIY homeowners with a basic knowledge of electricity and components should also have few problems with the installation. I found this Smart Switch easy to control and the installation is about the same as replacing a standard light switch. But, a big drawback is not have a dimming capability. To me this should be a no-brainer and i cant understand why this featire is lacking. Because that would makevthis a 5 star product. So before you procede there are a couple of precautions that should be noted. First, you must three wires plus the ground (usually bare or green), and one must be the neutral (usually white) third wire, or the switch simply will not work. This can be an issue in some older homes (and even in some newer ones too). The neutral wire is the “common” wire that runs throughout the house and is common to all circuits. It completes the loop in the circuit from the electrical box to the receptacle. The “hot” (or “line”) wire (usually black) carries the electrical load for that circuit only (usually 15-20 amps max). And finally, the “load” wire (usually black, red, or it could even be white) completes the hot side of the circuit between the switch and the receptacle. To save time and money some electricians when wiring homes “old school” would complete the light circuit by running the neutral to the light receptacle and then run a 2 conductor (plus ground) to the switch. So even though you may have a white and black wire at the switch, the white wire is not a neutral, but the load wire that that completes the hot circuit when the switch is turned on (closed). So if you don’t have 3 wires, one of them being the white neutral, you are out of luck using a Smart Switch. You can control the light however, by using Smart bulbs and then grouping them in the controling app (like Alexa). Another caution is wire management. Standard light switches don’t take up much room, so the original installing electrician had lots of room in the box to stuff extra wire. This is a luxury you don’t have since the Smart Switch is much deeper and takes up most of the box. The new switch also uses leads that are wire nutted to the circuit wires and not terminated on the switch itself. Because of this, it may be necessay to shorten the wires to make room in the box for the extra electronics and wire nuts. My advice is to open your intended switch boxes to survey your electrical wiring BEFORE you order the switches, so there are no surprises when it comes time to install. One last safety precaution. Be sure to turn off the circuit at the electrical panel (breaker box). Also don’t assume that all switches in a multi-switch box are on the same circuit. It is often the case that multiple circuits are in the box. This is especially true when a switch is controling a plug. So check all wires in the box with a meter to insure nothing is hot. Finally, when wire nutting multiple wires it is VERY EASY to leave a wire loose. This can be very dangerous, as loose wires can work themselves free and cause arking and sparking that can damage connected equipment, and worse, start a fire. This is a common cause of electrical fires, and you might not know there is a problem until it’s too late. So to ensure all wire nut connections are tight and secure, tug on each wire at the nut with needle nose pliers. If you can’t pull it loose it should be good to go. Also make sure there are no bare wires poking out of the nuts. The switches use stranded wire so it’s easy to have some stray strands loose outside the nut. So that’s about it. The install is pretty easy most of the time, but if you don’t think you’re experienced enough to do the job safely, put this phase of the job in the hands of a professional. It should be an easy job for any professional electrician, and should not be terribly expensive. Consider it cheep insurance!

    Reliable smart switch for a great price

    I have installed 10 Kasa HS200 and 210 smart switches in my house, and I love how convenient and reliable they are. The switches are easy to set up and connect to your home Wi-Fi. It works flawlessly with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can control lights and fans with your voice. You can also use the Kasa app on your phone to toggle power, and set schedules and timers.The switch has a sleek design and a large button that clicks nicely. It has LED indicators for light and WiFi status. The switch, although very deep, fits in a standard wall plate and requires a neutral wire. The switch can handle up to 15 amps of power, which is enough for most lighting fixtures.The only drawback of this model is that it does not have dimmer functionality. However, if you want a simple and smart way to control your single pole lights, the Kasa Smart Light Switch HS200 is a great choice.You can’t beat the quality and functionality for the price.

    Easy to install and setup

    I was looking for a simple solution to control my lights rather than smart bulbs and with the discounted pricing I decided to give the kasa switches a try. Installation is no different than a regular light switch and the instructions are clear if you need help. I found that WiFi integration was quick and painless using the kasa app. Integration with Alexa has also worked flawlessly. The switches are not a conventional paddle switch but instead work as push on push off type button action. They display an indicator light when not on and I have had no issues with them to date. I installed two regular and one dimmer style. Only complaint is that while they do come with a matching single gang wall plate I could not find an exact match in triple gang wall plate I needed.

    Super outstanding Customer Service!

    I have been a very happy user of Kasa devices for at least 3 years and now have 28 devices throughout our home. Thanks to Kasa we’re more energy efficient, safer and enjoying the happy conveniences of a smart home.I love their well-designed hardware – solid construction and sleek, modern, clean lines that fit well with our modern home. The devices were also highly reliable, working from the start and never failing in their steady, dependable operation.And especially I love their mobile app, intuitive installation guide and ongoing feature enhancements, seamless integration with Alexa, etc. As the CEO of an IoT software company, I even asked my development teams to look at Kasa as an example of what we should do for our industrial line of products. In my view, the Kasa installation guides are a best practice which our company had to adopt as well!Normally I’d stop there and say, “Great job Kasa!” and “Don’t hesitate for a second if you’re thinking of committing to Kasa for your own home!”But recently I discovered another side of Kasa / TP-Link – and I just had to finally lean in and write this customer review. I’ve never had an issues with a Kasa device until installing this motion sensor switch. I was looking for a way to automatically turn off our bathroom fans to save on electricity costs. Motors suck up lots of electricity and our teenage boys don’t think of turning things off, ever. 🙂 So I hoped that Kasa would ride to the rescue. But alas, I’ll admit, I was disappointed. For some reason the fans wouldn’t shut off using the motion sensing rules – which are easy to program by the way.Finally, for the first time, I decided I had to contact Kasa / TP-Link customer service for support. And I didn’t know what to expect. It’s not like many tech firms excel in customer support. But that’s when I saw a whole new side of the company… I am now not just a huge fan of their devices and software, but also of their friendly, effective and dedicated people!!!Thanks so much to Betsy and Tyrone (hope it’s okay to use your support names!) My emails were responded too quickly. Their suggestions for fixes were clear and actionable. And when it turned out that the normal fixes didn’t work, Tyler came through by getting TP-Link’s engineering team on the case… Another highlight of my experience I just have to share!It turns out the devices needed a firmware update, but that hadn’t yet been released for general availability. So, Tyrone was able to work with his engineers to provide a product firmware update to address our motion sensor problem – and it worked. He was always responsive, even proactive, following up to see if things had been corrected! He was very clear in his communications, and focused on getting this working with the full resources of TP-Link behind him.That, my Amazon friends and fellow Kasa customers – or future customers – is just magic. It’s one thing to buy products that always work … And it’s a whole new level to see a company so dedicated to customer satisfaction that they go the extra mile to fix a problem when inevitably, a problem does arise.My commitment to Kasa / TP-Link went up several and eventually we’ll have every switch and plug in home updated to Kasa so impressed I was by how they handled our firmware fix and update.THANK YOU Tyrone and Betsy – YOU ROCK!!Sam

    Great replacement for X10 switches to control my outdoor lights. Some tips for installation.

    I installed two of these, to replace the X10 controlled switches on my front porch and front garage lights. Installation was easy and they work great. The old X10 switches were controlled by powerline signals sent by a separate control timer box, but over the years this became unreliable. Also the X10 control timer was “dumb” in that I had to change the on/off times as the seasons changed if I wanted the lights to come on and off near the sunset and sunrise times. With the new Kasa switches, I simply told the Kasa app to turn them on and off with the sunset and sunrise times for my location, and it knows exactly when that is as the year progresses! You can even program an offset to the sun times if you like, say 30 minutes before or after sunset. I already had the Kasa app on my phone, since I got and use EP10 smart plugs on some lamps in the home, and they work great too. One of the HS200 switches found my WiFi immediately, the other had difficulty at first, but I followed the instructions and pushed the reset button on the switch and it then rebooted and found the WiFi right away. One thing to keep in mind is to make sure your cell phone is on the same exact WiFi network as the device, just for the initial setup, then the setup will go forward easily. In my case, I keep IOT devices like these switches on a separate isolated network, so I logged the phone into that first (a 2.4 GHz network), did the install, then logged the phone back into its usual 5GHz network. Another tip is to use plastic faceplates over them (not metal), so you don’t impair the WiFi signal. I replaced my old metal face plates with new plastic ones. Tips on wiring: Your old switch may be connected to only two wires (hot in, hot out) and this HS200 switch needs two wires (hot and neutral) plus ground. My old switch had only two wires, so I added a new 14-gauge white wire as a jumper to the several white neutral lines that were tied together in the box. 14-gauge wire can handle up to 15A or 1800W on a 120V circuit, which is enough for these switched circuits. One end of my jumper I added to the existing white neutral wires (all held together by the existing wire nut in the box). The other end of my jumper I attached to the white lead of the HS200 using the supplied wire nut. You could just directly connect the white lead of the HS200 to the wire nut holding all of the white wires, but I used a jumper to give me greater distance in my box (a two-switch box). One of the black “hot” leads of the HS200 I connected to one of the two wires that had been connected to my old switch, with a wire nut. The other black lead on the HS200 I connected to the remaining wire that had been connected to my switch, with the other wire nut. Finally I connected the green ground lead of the HS200 to my box itself, which is grounded to the house grounding system, through the metal conduits. You screw the HS200 back into the box, just like any other switch, attach the face plate, and then use the Kasa app to set it up. One final tip: The plastic faceplate that comes attached to the HS200 is on very tight and takes some force to remove. If you are not using the supplied face plate, you’ll need to remove it. There is a video on Youtube that gives guidance on how to hold and twist it off. Or, you can insert a flat bladed screwdriver into a slot on the bottom of the device, between the switch body and the face plate, and pry them apart with the blade. I did both approaches with my two HS200 switches, and both work well. Good luck!

    Works well

    Pairs easily with my Google smart home. Installation was fast and easy. Reasonbly priced. No problems with Kasa switches. They have become my go-to brand for smart switches and devices.

    Great product, reasonably priced and easy to instal.

    I’ve purchased four of these and 2 three-way. They work great as described. The one pole is easy to install. The three way is a little more complicated. They do have a video which helps quite bit. The app is also very helpful. Caution neither will work if you don’t have a white wire. Great product. It allows me to turn on – turn off at the same time from the app all of my outside lighting. And seasonable time changes can all be done on the app as well.

    Technically 5-Stars, but…

    I have a good 20+ smart Kasa switches and dimmers in my home. They work GREAT (need a Neutral, not a ground-cheat which doesn’t work).HOWEVER… Too many idiots buy these and don’t know how to install them, so they damage them, and return them. So Amazon gets many back and have occasionally resold them as new (which can be obvious buy contents, missing parts, zero LED life, etc.).The onus is two fold…1- Idiots need to be sure the power is off because even the slightest spark from an accidental box touch (if they are too lazy to turn off the power after setup and testing when they screw these back in, or trying to install while live), will fry these!! They are of course a sensitive electronic device!!2- Kasa needs to make them a bit more idiot proof. Your instructions are fine, but perhaps you isolate the electronics better?? Again, it’s not you, it’s the idiots, but if you want to also make money off idiots, you need to consider that. Otherwise, I’ll assume you’re making enough margin despite the idiots to keep the price down because I won’t buy them off they are too expensive.And if you had a “Blown” indicator (or Okay indicator) that represented the most likely failure point, it might save Amazon from shipping the units damaged by dough-heads.

    Most consistent and reliable Smart device I own

    I LOVE this smart light switch! I first got one to replace my ceiling fan/light fixture switch because I grew tired of getting comfortable in bed, only to have to then get up and turn the switch off (First World problems, I know)Out of all of the smart plugs and smart bulbs that I own, this one has been the most reliable by far. It integrates with my Alexa routines perfectly, and if it ever lost internet connection (which it has yet to do for me even once) it still functions as a regular light switch.I’ve had a lot of dud smart products that require constant resets, and I am very pleased I haven’t had to deal with that for any of the 6+ Kasa Smart Light Switches I own.Installation was very straightforward, and once you get comfortable with turning off the circuit breaker, anyone can install these in their sleep

    HS200 Issue Fixed

    Instructions are lacking but once you’re past that it’s great

    I think logically so I set on time then off time, but…….You need to set the on time, exit. Go back and set off time. What really nice is you can just select sunset for ON (exit!) and select sunrise for OFF and don’t worry about the season any more. If you end up with the picture above showing the two switches it should work.

    Excellent Products

    I have been using Kasa smart products for 3 years. I currently have in use 4 outdoor plugs (KP400),6 switches (2 & 3 way) and 4 inside plugs in use. Some are just for Xmas but year round I use several (landscape lighting, water features, etc). I have had zero issues with any of the Kasa products or the app. Until this week, I was using a 5 year old Nighthawk router (in a 4,000 sf home) and somehow the signal still traveled outside for the KP 400 units. Now I have a TP Link X55 three unit mesh router (staying with the TP-Link family). Management of the devices is very easy with the app. Frequent software upgrades are sent for the products. BTW, I live in Minnesota and the outside KP400’s are subjected to extreme weather conditions and in 3 years, no issues and are still working year round.

    Good switch

    This is a good switch, but really I have multiple products form Kasa and they have all been good. Some may require a little more forethought (their smart outlets tend to be very bulky).The app is fine, but I don’t use it once I finish pairing and let Alexa take over. Range also seem to be on par or better than other similar devices.Couple of things to be aware of:- this is not a toggle switch like your other switches, even though it looks like that. It actually always stays in the same position, and has a momentary click to toggle state. So think of it more like a push button that looks like a light switch.- when power is off, it has a little faint LED indicator on the switch that lights up. This allows you to find the switch in a dark room.Installation is just like other switches, if you can do a light switch, you should have no problem. If you are doing it as part of a multi-gang outlet, just pay attention to the existing switch’s wiring.I used it to control a circuit which originally had smart lightbulbs. Those lightbulbs kept losing signal, partly because the the enclosing light fixtures, and partly because walls.. and maybe also because they were crappy. By reverting them to regular LED bulbs and moving the smarts into the switch, there is no more signal problem. Good solution to annoying problem, and cheaper than getting another repeater.

    Cheapest Option for home automation

    Just install and use their software to configure for you WiFi. I use Hubitat Elevation so integration was easy. Why spend $50+ for a Z-wave or Zigbee switch or dimmer, these are cheap, secure and work. I started early when this was not an option but if just starting now get a bunch of these instead. Wemo is unreliable but these are not and they do not over burden your hub like those Wemo junk switches, etc. No constant polling like with Wemo and then they would often fail anyway. I get NO errors from these but constant one from that Wemo junk. I HUGE upgrade and much cheaper. Kasa also makes other WiFi lights and it works with any decent hub unlike the Philips proprietary garbage. Cheap and reliable, what is not to love about them?? I do not do Alexa or other spybots so I can not confirm if they integrate well like they do with my C-7 hubs, I have two and use Hub Mesh. These work perfect with them so long as you use the KASA software to get them on your LAN.

    Works great; install is the same as for a dimmer module – UPDATE: I’m downgrading these

    UPDATE 3: It’s now been long enough for me to believe that TP-Link has successfully corrected the problem I referenced in UPDATE 1 below. My units have continued to work successfully for well over a month now, including self recovering once power was restored from a power outage. All have continued to work flawlessly with all of my my Echo (Alexa) devices and I’ve been able to verify I can use the Kasa app to turn lights on and off from anywhere I have internet access on my cell phone.While I’m at it I should note that one limitation for these is that they are strictly single pole (SPST) switches, which means they can’t be installed in place of a 3-way (SPDT) switch . It would be nice if TP-Link offered a 3-way version of the product for those of us who might want to use one with a multi-switch installation.UPDATE 2 (upgrade 1 star): I’m raising my previous 2 star downgrade to a 1 star downgrade since TP-Link finally recognized they had a serious disconnect between their Kasa app and Amazon’s Alexa app (it sure took them long enough). It appears (for now) that they have corrected whatever caused the problem, but I won’t trust their Smart Home devices to retain their settings until my devices behave as advertised for at least a month. After the fix, for a plug I originally named “Back Porch” in the Kasa app and which I subsequently renamed “Porch”, the Alexa app, even after rediscovery, insisted on looking for “Back Porch” from the Kasa app instead of “Porch” until I deleted it from the Alexa app and rediscovered it; i.e., there are still bugs. Otherwise, it’s been so far so good, but I’m not convinced it won’t revert again to the erratic behavior I experience over a period of about 3 weeks, long enough that I was tempted to scrub the whole kit and kaboodle. If TP-Link keeps their Smart Home devices squeaky clean for about the next 6 months, my confidence in them will be sufficiently restored to revert to my original 5-star assessment.UPDATE:1 (downgrade 2 stars): I’m lowering my review from 5 stars to 3 because these simply do not consistently behave. I have become expert at factory reset to get them operating again, but the key point is that I can’t trust them to remain operational for more than a few hours before I get messages from Alexa that a device is not responding, or from the Kasa app that it can’t find the device, sometimes after having set it up just a few hours earlier, and that’s for a plug within a few feet of the my wi-fi range extender. It would appear TP-Link needs a firmware upgrade. I suppose I could replace my wi-fi router and range extender with one from TP-Link, but that seems stupid since my wi-fi works just fine with lap top, cell phone, TV, etc. Make no mistake, these represent a very cool idea, but as currently being sold they are way too finicky.Original review:I have 3 versions of the TP-Link Smart Home technology distributed within my house. Being able to control outlets and switches using them is perhaps the major reason I have that many. This is just one of a number of Smart Home products an Echo can handle. It differs from the plug ins in that you install it permanently in place of an existing manual wall switch. Installation is no different than installing any other wall switch, except this one is smart, at least in the sense that it can be operated by wifi as well as manually. The form factor is actually smaller than that of most dimmer modules, so it should fit in most switch boxes. After installation, you set it up for wifi via the (free) Kasa app (a very intuitive exercise) and from there tie it to your Echo system as a Smart Home product. In the Kasa app you can change the name to whatever you want and then have the (free) Echo app “discover” the new name. Operation is flawless and is entertaining (e.g., “Alexa, turn on the patio light”, where “patio light” is the name you selected for the smart switch). You can operate it manually via the Kasa app, or via Alexa as you wish! You can also program it for automatic operation. Any one of my Echo’s can operate it. It does require reasonable access to your home wifi network to work as advertised. I now have a number of Smart Home products installed, and the software does not seem to have any issues keeping them sorted out (far more reliably than the obsolete X-10 system I used to rely on).Here’s my take on the steps for installation of the switch:1) first turn off the circuit breaker that controls the existing switch (easy to test, since if the switch doesn’t work, the power to it is off);2) your existing switch should be across the “hot” line that supplies power to the load (a lamp or whatever), one black (hot) line for power coming in, and one black line for power passed on from the switch to the load. You simply remove the existing switch, disconnect its two black wires, and use wire nuts to hook them to the black wires for this switch (order doesn’t matter).3) the “return” that completes the circuit is through the “neutral” white line (always present unless you have some really squirrely wiring). You hook the white wire to the neutral line using a wire nut, cutting/stripping the neutral wire as necessary (usually not necessary since most installations will already have a wire nut connection for the neutral line).4) if there is a ground line (a bare wire in the switch box) connect the green line to it using a wire nut (if not, don’t bother, but insulate it using one of the wire nuts or electrical tape).5) turn the circuit breaker back on and verify the smart switch works as a manual switch, then go through the set up procedure.NOTE: 4 wire nuts are included in the package in case your current installation is one with the black wires attached directly to the old switch. A switch plate is included that you have to snap off for installation. The switch has the Decora form factor, so if your existing switch is not Decora style, you will need to use the included plate or pick up one from some place like Home Depot to match your needs.

    Good price for an occupancy switch with WiFi capability

    I had installed occupancy switch in garage and laundry room, which make doing work convenient as long as people keep moving. However, I would like have an occupancy switch installed in kitchen to help wife who tends not to turn on the light when it is getting dark. More further I would like to have a switch with WiFi capability so it would be controlled to simulate someone working in the kitchen while away from home. This switch meets the purpose and fits the bill. The price is on par with an ordinary occupancy switch without WiFi capability.With Tapo app, it has Smart Control so light will be on if it is dark and there is motion detected for a period time of day even across over next day (through midnight), timer to turn on or off after a period of time up to 24 hours, schedule when to turn on and off each day of week, away mode randomly to turn on and off for set time each of week.I likes this very much and hope you can find good use of it. This is version Apple Home compatible but more expensive that I wish to have but budget is tight.

    TP-Link’s Kasa Smart-switches are Great!

    We had older switch timers installed at mine & my mother’s house that worked OK, but were a real pain to program and adjust for time changes. Some of the old timers caused LED lights to flicker and lost their settings during even brief power outings. The Kasa switches are easy to install and solved all the problems of the old switch timers. Now, I can even monitor and adjust my mom’s light schedules remotely – if necessary. The Kasa smart-switches are basically set and forget.Way to go TP-Link!My only issue with the Kasa smart-switches is that the switch bodies (the part inside the electrical box) are a little larger than a standard decora switch and can be a tight squeeze in some installations.

    For the low cost, this is a decent product

    Bought this switch to dim bedroom light, bought the wrong model. This model is on/off only. It works well for on/off and integrates with Alexa (i.e., “Alexa, shut off the bedroom light”). Installation is typical for this type of device, an electrician is not needed, but almost. You’ll have to find the circuit breaker, cut some wires, locate a ground, etc. software / app setup is easy, worked the first time.

    Works Perfectly

    It takes a minute to install and set up but once everything is correct it works perfectly. It doesn’t matter which wire is Line and which is Load which helps save a little time. Be sure to wire nut all four wires correctly (Line and Load to black, Neutral to white, and Ground to bare wire. Download the Kasa app, hold the Reset button on the switch (bottom left below paddle), and follow the app directions to add a Smart Wi-Fi Switch. Everything went perfectly smoothly and all three of my switches work perfectly.

    Setup issues? my step by step tips with app/wifi/alexa troubleshooting

    We just swapped out a ceiling light fixture with a fan light combo unit. i wanted to be able to control with Alexa and going with a new switch due to the light bulb size was the only way to do that. The only problem encountered all revolved around getting both the Wi-Fi and Alexa integration to function properly following the enclosed instructions let alone the companies own help videos.1 connect switch hardware to wall before moving to software connections2 if you don’t have the ‘kasa’ app download it3 open the kasa app and make sure you are connected to your personal Wi-Fia. if uncertain go to your settings, select connections on your phone4 if open close and reopen the kasa app5 go to your new switch, look to the lower left below the large button6 switch says ‘reset’ press and hold until it starts flashing faster7 go immediately to your phone8 if there is no window that pops up saying new device discovered then skip to step 9a. if window pops up tap it and continue as directed9 press the ‘+’ upper right corner to add a. select switches from the list shown on your phone b. you’ll be asked to connect to the TP-Link Wi-Fi, go to your settings and change temporarily c. follow on screen prompts d. at the end of process go back to your Wi-Fi settings and switch back to your personal Wi-Fi e. be sure within the app if you didn’t at the outset to choose or create a name to use with this f. once connected to your Wi-Fi network and have a name you should be good to go g. if done right you should not only be able to use it via the app but for Alexa it should already be done i. just say Alexa turn on,…and it should work10 if a window pops up as cited in ‘8’ try that path and follow the steps as shown in the app11 At the end of that process once it says you are finished, you may or may not be prompted about Wi-Fi? a. I went through these steps a half dozen times before I got mine setup and working b. If something pops up about no Wi-Fi connection then again switch Wi-Fi from TP-Link to yours c. When you think you are done then upper right corner the ‘gear’ icon for settings, go there i. if there is at the very top a line about “remote control” with an on/off toggle you have a problem ii. unfortunately you’ll need to start all over again as I had to iii. delete device, you’ll have tap once and then a second time iv. close out the app v. go to the reset button on switch, press and hold until if flashes fast ( the instruction manual says restart, however that never worked out at my end to resolve connection issues vi. you are ready to give it another try12 If it is added and appears all is good the true test is to say Alexa turn on/off example name, bedroom. If bedroom turns on with Alexa you are good to go on all counts.The wiring part of the installation process is just as described in the packaging, simple and straight forward. The software side however is not so simple or straight forward for many self-included. While some here have had success on the first try others have tried and tried with no success. We may follow the instructions precisely but we encountered issues along the way. As said I tried a half dozen times and was about to throw in the towel before it finally connected right and worked with Alexa and the app both.FYI the official online instruction video put out by TP-Link posted to YouTube does a good job showing you how to connect the wiring but as for Wi-Fi/Alexa it is pretty thin to nonexistent on details. In fact not a single word said about Alexa integration?For manual use of the switch you only press on the lower portion. Which doesn’t make a lot of sense based on the design they used? The upper switch is made in a stuck up position, looks like it is always on but isn’t the case. Just my opinion but they should have just gone with a single square or rectangle to press and not a fake up/down traditional switch look.**regardless what the instructions or vids say you can use a metal face plate just fine with no impacts at all. We have a brushed nickel plate around ours (put on after setup was completed) and all is good. FYI i did start out with the enclosed plastic face plate so that had zero affect on Wi-Fi connection during setup.Summary – If it hadn’t been for the trouble I had setting the software, Wi-Fi side of this up I would have given It five stars and recommended it to all, but there were issues. Consequently I’m not recommending it but I’m not saying don’t buy it either.With this device it is kind of a gamble, a flip of the coin so to speak as to whether or not your experience setting it up will go smoothly, not so smoothly or not at all. Considering the price I think it is likely worth the gamble. At least if all else fails and it doesn’t work out you can easily return it with Amazon and try another model.

    I love Kasa Products

    Every smart plug or boult in my home is from Kasa. I wanted this smart switch for my kitchen because my kitchen switch is far away from the kitchen and I just wanted to ask alexa to turn on my kitchen light and this helped me with this.

    Great so far

    I’ve only had this switch for a little while. I installed the switch for my outside light on the house. I wanted the switch for the scheduling feature. My outside lights come on at dark and go off when the sun comes up! Works great. Simple to install. Simple to setup. App is free and very simple to use. FYI – you will need a neutral wire to make this work. Check wiring before purchasing.

    Super easy setup

    I have now installed 6 of these switches.The first was quite easy, and then adding them is a breeze. I installed two in a workshop about 50 feet from the house so I could shut them off remotely, should I forget to. Then as soon as they were installed, I realized that since I have an Alexa speaker in the shop. I can just walk in and say ” Alexa, turn on shop 1″ and it turns on the appropriate bank of lights.I had another brand that didn’t work, in order to get a toggle style to match what I had. These work great.

    Love it but…

    This is my 2nd one. I installed this one for my kitchen lights and upon installing it and connecting it to the Kasa app and Alexa, I found out that when I do a voice command for Alexa to turn it on she says the device isn’t supported but I can use voice command for my 1st one.I can use either the Kasa app and Alexa app to turn it off/on when I’m not home, so that’s good but it still sucks that something is going on so it won’t accept the verbal command

    Good buy

    I’m only giving it a four star due to the fact that if you tighten down the switch to the box too much the switch housing flexes and the switch loses power. Very frustrating! Would’ve been better if the electrical part was not so sensitive to this and/or the housing was lose prone to flex.

    Fantastic wi-fi switch, even better tech support

    I bought 3 HS200 wi-fi switches that in need for a 3gang junction boxat my front door. They fit perfectly. 2 of the switches automatically connected to both my Alexa and my Google home, but I had a bad connection to 1 switch and it wasn’t working. I called for tech support and spoke with Monica Llamera. Monica answered quickly, even though it was a holiday, and took me through some troubleshooting. I had a bad connection on the return line to the light I was trying to connect. When I corrected that, the switch connected almost instantly. Problem solved. I couldn’t be happier! I will be buying more TP-link switches. Thank you, Monica.

    Very nice alexa compatible wifi switch

    The headline says it all. If you have sufficient knowledge to do minor electrical wiring you can easily install this and use Alexa to control a switched source of electricity.

    The switch plate is removable and will fit on a wall with multiple switches

    At first I was worried because it looked like the wall plate the switch came with wasn’t going to come off, but it does. It was easy to install. The setup was a little confusing, I think it connects to bluetooth on your phone (with the App you download) in order to setup the switch’s access to the wifi network. Once setup the scheduling feature is fantastic and simple.

    TP Link is getting very impressive

    This was extremely easy to install. The app has a guide that walks you through the set up and its a breeze. I’ll be buying a lot more of these for the rest of the house. TP Link has really turned into a top notch company the last few years.

    Make sure you’re house is wired for neutral white wire. Works perfectly.

    I’m a former electrician so I’m not sure what your skill level is but I hooked up the white wire, hot and neutral. Programmed it via the app and it worked perfectly. Use the Alexa app to add that if you want.

    Works as advertised

    Great price. Simple installation. Always kill breaker and verify there is no power to the switch. Does come with plate but can be popped off if using existing wall plate. Requires 2 black, 1 white (neutral), and 1 gound. (Usually copper wire). Comes 4 wire nuts. Prior to purchasing, kill power to switch, remove switch plate and switches, verify neutral wires are in the switch box. If you don’t have the neutral, there are other switches available that does not require the neutral. Kasa app available for Android and IOS. Simple setup to pair smart switches. I bought these to control my front outside lights, in the outside entryway and outdoor garage lights. I was able to add both switches as a group and the app allows you to turn on/off by sunset/sunrise or any time you want. Also can be manually powered from app when away from your home. Will buy more of these if needed. Works on 2.4 Ghz from wireless in your home.
