App is very easy to use. Got a couple products from Kasa along with an echo dot. Was very smooth process pairing it with the echo. (1st time using smart home tech) They explain it easily. But the only thing I wished Kasa had that would destroy Phillips Hue is if with Alexa, you can also control the THEMES. Hopefully in a future update. Then 5 stars for sure. But app overall is very user friendly.
Please add the ability to select a an RGB value for color changing bulbs as an alternative to the selection grid to allow a user to select specific colors. In addition, please add the option to select one color for a group instead of setting each bulb manually for a scene. Also, please consider adding Tasker integration. I would fill my entire house with TP-Link bulbs and plugs if Kasa had Tasker integration. Your user base would increase exponentially with this.. just saying!!
The app has a walk through for installing a switch when you first connect it. That was helpful. Connecting it to my Amazon Echo was easy. If the app had the ability to set a schedule based on your local sunrise and sunset that auto adjusted throughout the year id give the app a 5 star. Adding more support IFTTT would make the app great. It was difficult to find the scheduling, hint you have to click on the device to set a schedule for it. Which seems intuitive now.
Don't like that TP Link has been around a lot longer than many competitors, yet they still haven't worked with Google to make it Home compatible. Even more shocking, no IFTT support. Just Alexa and kasa to control your oversized TP Link wifi wall plug. They are cheaper still than any other brand wall plug. You get what you pay for I guess...
Works fantastic with amazon echo. Devices have really quick response (quicker than our philips Hue lights). The only issue i have with the plugs, is that they are really large. They have to be plugged into the top outlet, and the bottom of the plug somewhat blocks the bottom outlet, making some other plugs unusable. The app is super easy to use and connects to alexa without going through a ton of hoops.
Useful & Fun! I asked for one smart plug for Christmas, and was so impressed at how easy it was to set up and use that I went on Amazon and ordered three more! I have a one bedroom condo, but about 900 sq feet. I paired the plugs with my Echo, so I can ask Alexa to turn on and off my lights. This is great when I walk into a dark place, or am on my way out the door and realize I forgot to turn my bedroom light off. I also plan to use it on vacations for added security. Love it! Not a techie and was easy to set up!
