Is there any chance you can make the Kasa App so we can set Schedules & Timers in Seconds for finer tuning?

 

I can understand that most users/uses of the Kasa App don't need to worry about being able to set their Schedules & Timers in seconds, but I've got an HS100 Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug controlling an electric pump used for supply water to an indoor irrigation system that waters my house plants. As such it would be very useful to be able to fine-tune how much water my plants are getting, and to also set up the system so I can give my plants water in "little & often" amounts, by being able to set the Schedules & Timers in Seconds & I'm sure there are some other uses like these where users need to be able to control things by the second.

 

From a software or hardware point of view I can't see any reason why this can't be achieved since as far as I can tell, it is the app/phone controlling the timer and as such, it should be possible for it to control devices by the second, providing you have the ability to program the software to do it. I know this might require a bit of a rejig of the UI, and if your worried if most users will find the seconds option annoying you could even have an "Advanced Options" setting which allows users to program things in seconds and anything else users might want that you don't want to clutter the main UI.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for your requesting. 

 

As you know the schedule/timer cannot work in seconds yet; And to be honest, it is a new feedback. 

 

While do not worry, we have noted that and will remind our product engineer so that they can work on it. 

 

And it will take a lot of time from proposing an idea to make it come true. So it is very suggested to keep an eye on official website for the updates.

@Kevin_Z i agree with this feature. tp link is alredy used by a lot of home horticulturists because it works even when wifi is down (btw you may want to consider advertizing that fact more). if a seconds module would be included i know quite a few people in my hobby circle that would select tp-link plugs insted of dumb timers for a lot of other functions related to in home gardening. a lot of business is going to the smart life plugs for the seconds feature... just fyi

Hello, thanks a lot for your valued suggestion again.


We do agree that this would be great features to have, and we had already feedback to the related department for consideration, while we cannot guarantee they will or not add this in the new firmware/app, sorry about that. Please keep an eye on the Kasa app for any newer firmware or app release for any new features.

 

Thank you again for your feedback.

 

Good days.
