Frequently Asked Questions

Can it work on two-pole switch as long as the other switch is always on?

Not likely. You can try it and possibly burn it up due to doubling the rated voltage of the switch.
A two pole switch may be connected to one or two hots, 110 or 220 volts (120/240). If the 2P switch is connected to two hots, it has 220 volts to it. If the 2 pole switch is connected to the same hot, 110 volts, then this would work well.

Is this also a dimmer?

I am actually looking at the product page for the new TP-Link dimmer H220. This is a DIMMER! Apparently, Amazon mixes the questions and product reviews for all TP-Link products. So finding your answer is about searching. Some responders are talking about 3-way and 4-way setups. The dimmer H220 is only for single-pole setups.

Do we have to use the supplied faceplate ? I’m going to be installing this in a dual gang box with another switch right beside it.

You don’t need to use the supplied faceplate. It will fit a standard two-gang faceplace (for the appropriate button size) if you want to install two side-by-side, or next to a standard switch in a two-gang box. I’ve done this twice now, without trouble (apart from a little fiddling to get the two switches lined up right).

Can this be controlled by Apple Homekit?

No apple homekit, but You can create a shortcut on your iPhone and control it with Siri or from apple native Shortcuts app. You can even add On of Off icons on your iPhone screen to control the switch.

Can the HS200 switch be used in a three-way switch light combination (two switches controlling one light)?

No, you cannot replace a 3-way switch with this product.

Do Kasa switches utilize Z-Wave protocol?

I have the HS200 switch. It appears to work only with WiFi directly to your router. It think all the TP Link stuff works this way. Usually Z-wave devices would connect through a hub and then the hub connects to the router.

Can this switch act as a dimmer ?

I don’t know about the switch acting as a dimmer…It wouldn’t work for my application, you have to have a neutral wire in the switch box for this to work, my house or my GF’s house isn’t wired that way. What works very well in it’s place is a wifi bulb, these you can set to 4 different brightness levels thru the KASA app on your phone…the Echo may even be able to dim the bulb by voice command, but I haven’t tried that yet.

Would these switches fit in a 4 or 5 gang box? Looking to convert my home to smart switch only.

Basically, yes. Each switch will fit within the space allotted for a standard switch BUT the smart switch will be deeper than a standard switch. Make sure your boxes are deep enough and you will be fine.

Is it possible to disable the round light on the switch itself? It is fairly bright in a dark bedroom.

I have not see an option for that but might try a small sticker of some kind or a piece of white tape to cover it. I think it only serves to make it easier to locate the switch in the dark.

Does this hs200 wifi switch come with energy monitoring function?

No energy monitoring function within or from switch.

Does the light switch fit into a standard faceplate? I have a faceplate that has 3 switches on it and I want to replace one with this switch.

The button fits the standard size opening of what’s called a “Decora” faceplate. You can buy combo faceplates with any combination of Decora and smaller toggle-switch openings, though of course some combos are rarer and harder to find. I use one that has one Decora opening for the TP-Link switch and 2 regular toggle switches.

Will this switch work with just an echo dot, or will it also require a hub along with the echo dot?

Yes works with echo dot, no hub required. Does require download and install Kasa app and creating a Kasa account then linking to dot.

Can i use it manually and wireless at the ‘same time’? for example: can i turn the lights off manually and later turn it on by mobile app?

I see answers regarding both the light switch and regarding the smart outlet plug, too. The Kasa smart light switch can be manually turned on and off. You can use the app to turn the light switch, or the Kasa smart outlet plug, on and off too. The app can be used to set an on/off schedule for the light switches and the smart plugs. Alexa can be used to turn on or off either one as well. The Kasa smart outlet plug has a small button on its side to manually turn on or off the plugged in device, a lamp for example, if you misplace your phone or if Alexa is unavailable.

Can one get this switch to work with a two wire switch ( no neutral wire) ?

Unfortunately a neutral wire is required.

Will the switch act like a regular switch without Wi-Fi?

I don’t have a switch, just light bulbs. They perform like regular bulbs without without wi-fi so I would assume the switch would too. I would guess you leave in the “on” position with lights on to control remotely by wi-fi. Otherwise should act like normal switch.

Does it work with 220v?

Yes. Work perfectly
