TP-Link Kasa Switch support

Post by PlanoBill » Wed Aug 08, 2018 6:50 pm

Any plans to add support for the TP-Link Kasa switches and dimmer?
I currently have the HS200 switch and the HS220 switch/dimmer.

For some reason, there are different controls for the TP-Link products I have included so far. Sometimes, even a European version takes slightly different parameters than the US version. But if these switches are similar to the Smart Plugs or the Light Bulbs, I might be able to get them to work. I will look into it next week.

I have uploaded a new build to the app store that might work with the HS200...

The update (V1.21.3) does work with the HS200 - thanks!
Do you think you'll be able to get the HS220 switch/dimmer to work as well?

Yes. I was thinking that I might have to buy one of these dimmers to test it out, but I found something online where a user posted JSON output. I will put out another update later this week that should work.

On second thought, I am nervous about implementing the HS220 without testing, because it requires changes to the whole TP-Link class that could cause unintended consequences. So I ordered an HS220 via Amazon yesterday for testing. It was supposed to arrive in the mail today, but that didn't happen. I find Amazon has about a 70% chance of delivering on-time. Unfortunately, this is one of the late packages. When I get it, I will add it to supported devices.

A new build (1.22) has been uploaded to the app store. It is currently waiting for review and might take a couple days due the labor day holiday. The new version fully supports the HS220 and includes dimming options for this switch. The switch also works with Scene Control. I was actually going to return this switch after writing the code, but the HS220 is pretty neat, even if I only currently have it in a bathroom. I think I might keep this one!
