App works flawlessly & reliably for the light switch & outlet. Although you can't schedule scenes without their smart router. Leviton products let you do this without a special router. Kasa has lost connection with my light bulbs multiple times for unknown reasons. The light bulbs then have to be set up as new devices again. I currently can't set up the light bulbs at all.
I like pretty much everything about this app and the devices are top quality. Would help to have more than 4 scenes in the widget when you resize it. Also, allow me to arrange them in any order I want. Both in the widget and in the app. Would help to have this be independent from each device. My wife and I have different scenes we use often and it makes the widget and the in app scene order a bit annoying. This can only make for a better experience. Thanks!
The App is ok but after a reasonably short period of time the device becomes unavailable. Have latest 1.1.3 version of firmware in plug. Wifi router shows plug connected but App has device unavailble. Power off/on fixes problem but within 12 hours connectivity lost. Have disabled all other wifi connections to home router to check effect. Also have ticket open with tp link support. I like the app and the plug when it works but useless if unreliable
Great smartplugs let down by software. No IFTTT support means you cannot attempt to make the devices useful. Kasa app is not bad but needs more options i.e. sunset +- time. Also, scene option is a good compromise for auto control of multiple plugs, however Kasa lets you create many useful scene's but the widget....which you can make full screen... only shows 4!! Which 4 is not controllable, why?!!!. Liked the fact the plugs didn't require a hub, but now wish I had purchased another brand. There is still hope. Make the software functional and you have a winner, but as time goes on it doesn't look promising, hope the additional option for the smart router isn't the answer.
Very low quality. Unreliable. Energy Usage stopped working after almost 2 weeks of using it. My HS110 is still working fine but right now only the Runtime feature is working. I hope TP-Link can fix this bug in the future updates.
The splash screen is annoying at launch as it takes too long to open. It desperately needs IFTTT support. Absolutely bleeds the battery dry on Galaxy S6 edge+i. Most consumption happens when connected to 4G and not Wi-Fi. It stops when background data is disabled. Away mode should be available to customise and activate as a scene. An "edge screen" widget would be a very welcome addition for Samsung device owners. Also, a 1×5 & 1×1 widget instead of the 2×5 would be welcome.
