Answer:
As of March 2, 2017 these devices quit working with Amazon Echo. I had 2 of them that worked fine from November 2016 until yesterday but they both quit working with Amazon Echo at the same time (they do still work with their own app and my Amazon Echo still works with all the other devices I control with it).

I had 2 of them that worked fine from November 2016 until yesterday but they both quit working with Amazon Echo at the same time (they do still work with their own app and my Amazon Echo still works with all the other devices I control with it). I did some searching online last night and it appears it wasn't just me. There were lots of complaints from other users on the Alexa "skills" section who reported their TP-Link smart plugs quit working with Alexa yesterday. Hopefully this is a temporary situation and the people at TP-Link will get the problem resolved but as of this morning I would NOT recommend these devices if you want to use them with Amazon Echo. see less As of March 2, 2017 these devices quit working with Amazon Echo.

Answer:
Mine caught on fire with a little 1500 watt space heater, and to compare, my hair dryer is 1875 watts (not plugged into a smart plug of course), so it doesn't take much for these to catch on fire. Be careful if you use anything in it larger than maybe a desk lamp in my opinion. I unplugged all 3 of my kasa smart plugs … see more Mine caught on fire with a little 1500 watt space heater, and to compare, my hair dryer is 1875 watts (not plugged into a smart plug of course), so it doesn't take much for these to catch on fire.

Up until a few months ago, it did great at remembering its settings, etc. In those rare occasions where it set itself to LOCAL ONLY, there was an option in the settings to change it back to remote operation. THAT IS NOW GONE. And I noticed tonight that after a power outage, all the times for my devices are 1/1/00. The answer is to rest the device; but I spent probably $200 buying devices for REMOTE USE, and up until recenetly that worked great. But now, after a power outage, they are LOCAL ONLY, and appear to not know the time. So schedules I set will be inerror, and I can't access them remotely.
This issue has previously been brought to Kasa's attention by some others, but they are not responding. (TP-LINK the actual vendor, is more focused on their DECO routers and has largely abandoned these devices -- very disturbing after spending a couple hundred dollars on them). see less

Answer:
What device are you using? "Kasa" should bring the app up in both the Apple App Store (for iOS) and Google Play Store (for Android). If you have a Kindle Fire, I do not believe the app is available on the Amazon Appstore.

If that is your situation, you would either need to find a the APK from a reputable source (I recommend APKMirror.com) and sideload it. Alternately, if you have a newer Fire tablet, do a search for "Google Play on Kindle Fire" and follow the instructions from the result at LifeHacker.com for downloading and installing 5 files that give your Fire access to the Google Play Store. This would give you access to not only the Kasa app, but all the apps for Android. see less What device are you using?

Answer:
Highly unlikely, as these are designed for indoor use within the home and protected from the elements. Instead, we would suggest considering our outdoor smart plug models, such as the KP400 or EP40.
