Two questions....I bought TP link 3 way switches to add to my house because while I have plenty of Wemo switches, up until this year, they did not have a 3 way switch. With that said, I have run into the following issues:
- Based on all of my reading, I apparently need to purchase a tp link smart router to add the auto off functionality to their smart switches. For example my kids leave the bathroom lights on all day and I would like to schedule it to turn off after 60-90 minutes like I can with Wemo switches. According to the app I need a smart router which seems completely unnecessary to add a simple feature. Is there a way to make this work? I have Alexa, IFTTT and google home hubs as well so I can use basically anything other than buying a smart router. Help!
- Is there any way to have the light switches turn on at sunset +/- a specified period of time like I can for Wemo switches? I typically do sunset + 30 minutes because it is still light out for a while after sunset.
If the answer to both of these questions is no, it looks like I'll be switching over to Wemo 3 way switches when they come out later this year.
