I like these switches a lot. The only issue I had was when it was time for Alexa to recognize the name I assigned to the switches and turn them on and off via voice command. The comment back to me was she couldn’t find any switch named xxxxxx. Everything went so perfect during installation, the KASA app setup and Alexa configuration. The Alexa app even stated that I could now announce turn on/off commands. I found zero fixes on Kasa, online or anywhere else that solved my issue until I realized what the problem was. I have a wi-fi range extender in my house and its not a mesh node. So, I set my switches up on my main wi-fi network and found that somehow my Amazon Echo-Alexa was connected to a range extender node and not my main wi-fi. With this configuration my Alexa was not finding my switches since they were on separate wi-fi networks. So except for “my problem” with switch 1 installation the rest went perfectly. the Kasa app is great, setting up timers was a breeze and operating lights and switches when not at home is very easy.
