Model: LB100
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.8.6

Hello,

 

I have a smart buld (LB100) connected and managed through my mobile phone using wifi or mobile data.

 

I would like to know if there is any windows or mac app for managing the smart bulb and/or other "smart" programs of tp-link that are compatible with kasa mobile app.

 

Thanks for your time

Hi,

 

sorry to tell you that the smart bulb can be controlled by kasa app only, besides, it can work with Alexa and Google.

 

While for Kasa app, it is available for mobile device only. 

 

Good day.

Hi One thing you could do would be to install BlueStacks, which is an Android Emulation app, which can run on your Windows PC. Download and install it. Then log in with your Google Play account - if you don't have one you can register with a gmail address which is easy to setup. Once done, sign into Google Play (if not already done) and search for the TP Link KASA App. Download, install it then sign into it. You'll see the bulb(s) that you have added once signed in. The good thing about the BlueStacks android emulation app on a Windows PC is that you can leave your PC on and if you have remote control setup to your home PC, you can log in, start up your bluestacks app, then turn on and off your Smart Bulbs etc., if you're worried about wasting energy (shouldn't be for a while since we're in lockdown, at least in ireland) if you're router allows it you can enable wake on lan. We use Draytek routers and they have Wake On LAN built into them so you can log into your router remotely, wake up your PC, do what you need to do and then shut it down again. If it's a stock ISP router though, this may not be possible. Draytek routers can be picked up off eBay relatively easy. If you need further help about doing so reply to this post, i've feck all else to do for the next 6 weeks because of COVID19!!

A bit complicated, might be easier just to buy a low end or repurpose an old android device as a home automation as a control panel.  Would use a lot less power, can be left on and handy.  Setting up communication through bluestacks can be a little tricky, it needs to be routed properly through to the emulator.  If one goes the dedicated tablet route AutomationManager can be used for more complex automation and integration with other apps.
