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!
Nice... I love my kasa, but sometimes things don't work. I was at one time able to control lights without being connected to WiFi, but now I need to be online, which uses up the data on my phone...the reason I wanted kasa was so not to have to be online. Don't know why it stopped working offline all of a sudden! It's still really cool, though.
Cloud only if using with Alexa Disappointed that it will only work if you allow cloud access to use it with Alexa. Wemo switches work regardless if remote access is enabled or not. These devices only work with the Kasa app locally. Returning the 3 switches i just picked up because of this fact alone and buying more Wemos
Easy to use and very responsive I am impressed at how quickly the switch activates from the app. I was expecting a few second delay, and really it's in milliseconds. Problem is now I want to buy more switches. The ability to set up schedules, themes and timers is a very nice surprise.
Few hiccups but love it We have our smart plug integrated with my echo dot and love it. We've had a few hiccups with the outlet if we have to reset our dsl/wireless which happens on occasion, but just a quick unplug and replug fixes the outlet usually. A widget would be good as others have mentioned, but it does everything we need it to including turning the lights on and off on the schedules I set up for our home.
Easy to use I chose this over Philips and other brands due to the app ratings. So far I have not been disappointed. The set up was quick and without hassle. I can easily control the light as advertised. However, on a few occasions, I have not been able control the light bulb. Resetting the light bulb seems to fix the issue.
