Overview: The TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch (HS200) lets you
control your lights, ceiling fans, and other hardwired fixtures in your home
from anywhere. Anything you have connected to a standard light switch can be
controlled via Wi-Fi. Using TP-Link's Kasa app, you can turn the light on or off
remotely, set a schedule, create a scene for particular times of the day, and
simulate occupancy when you're not at home. The app also lets you keep track how
long the light switch has been running, and how much energy you're using.
Installation: The Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch fits into most standard
in-wall electrical boxes more than 2 inches deep. It has 4 wires (2 Live/Load,
Ground, Neutral) with tinned ends, and comes with 4 wire nuts for DIY
installation, or installation by a qualified electrician. It is compatible with
incandescent, LED, halogen, and compact fluorescent light bulbs. It is rated to a maximum load of 600W incandescent. A 3-5/16" x
5-1/16" decorative faceplate is included with the switch.
Wi-Fi: The HS200 is compatible with IEEE 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz (1T1R)
Wi-Fi systems. It should be installed within the range of your Wi-Fi router or
access point (approximately 150 feet), without physical obstructions or radio
interference in the surrounding areas.
Physical Controls: The HS200 is a single-pole light switch
with a single, spring-loaded action. By pressing the bottom of the switch, you
can switch the connected fixture (light/fan) on or off. Two smaller buttons
below the switch are for restarting and resetting the Smart Switch. A white LED
on the switch is illuminated when the light is switched off to help you locate
it in the dark. A multi-color LED indicates the condition of the Wi-Fi signal.
Kasa App: The Kasa app lets you control all TP-Link Smart
Home products from
anywhere on your Apple iOS or Android devices. From the app, you can turn lights
or ceiling fans on or off remotely. You can set and
edit schedules to turn lights on or off, even while you're away, to simulate occupancy. The Kasa app works with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 9.0 or later,
and is available from the Apple App Store. It is also compatible with Android
devices running Android 4.1 and up, and available from Google Play.
Scenes: The Kasa app offers several "Scenes" to help you
control multiple TP-Link Smart Home devices at once. With the press of a single
button on the app, you can turn on multiple Smart Light Bulbs, Smart Switches,
and Smart Plugs to set a mood or fit a special occasion. For example, a "Movie
Time" scene can turn on your home entertainment system (plugged into a Smart
Plug) and dim the lights to 10% brightness in your entertainment room. Scenes
can be customized to suit your personal preferences.
TP-Link Compatibilities: The TP-Link
Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch and Kasa app not only work with other TP-Link products within your own
system, but cross over to work with other Smart Home products and services:
- Amazon Echo (Alexa): The TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Light
with Amazon Echo, Amazon Dot, and Amazon Tap, allowing you to control your
devices with your voice. Simply speak voice commands to Alexa and the TP-Link
devices will follow your directions.
- Google Home: Google Home gives you voice control over
the devices you have wired into the TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch. You can
control your lights,
fans, or other devices with just the power of your voice.
