I know that this has come up 1000 times before, but I don't see any good solutions. The TP-Link smart switch wall plates are the best out there, but they don't make 2 or 3 gang versions as far as I can see - I know lots of people want them, so I can't understand why TP-Link don't sell them. This must really hold back adoption of their switches, as > 99% of houses must have 2 or 3 gang switches somewhere, and you need them if you are doing whole house conversions. Has anyone found a good solution to this? The ones from Home Depot are nowhere near as good IMHO. 

 

TP-Link has some great home automation products, and they could easily be a real leader in this space if they focussed on a few details like this. My other gripe is why their switches won't work as triggers for IFTTT. Has anyone found a workaround for this?

 

Both the wall plates & IFTTT limitations seem really easy things for TP-Link to fix......................  Over to you TP-Link.......

While I feel strongly that home automation should stay in home and not go through TP Link, IFTTT, or any other cloud server, I did extend "AutomationManager" so that it can both trigger IFTTT applets as well as respond to requests from them since, as I expect you've noticed, there are some devices that can only be integrated using IFTTT.

AutomationManager: Secure home automation without relying on cloud servers.

I have no problem using my existing wall plates to cover the TP link switches. Is there a reason you cannot use them?
