New feature offset to sunrise and sunset

Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: 2.17.0 Build 738

The release notes for this app version includes a new function for setting of offset time to sunset/sunrise. Sadly the new function is not to be found in the app.

@Tompa 

 

What is the model number of your TP-Link device? 

 

What is the hardware and firmware version as well?

@Kevin_Z All firmware is latest versions. The app doesn't specify that it is hardware dependant so shouldn't make any diffreence so long as it already supports sunrise/sunset.

@Tompa just found this page https://www.tp-link.com/uk/support/faq/2702/ which says 

What kind of devices supports Sunset/Sunrise Offset and Fade rate?

Note: you need to wait for the new firmware update to use those two new features, and the new firmware would release within this year in succession. Please pay close attention to the firmware update notification on your Kasa app.

 

....so they released the app but no firmware to go with it!

Why didn’t they just added a new parameter in the app setting for the offset sunrise/sunset. I don’t want to set this to each device! What I’m looking for is a setting to add an offset of say 15 minutes before sunset or 15 minutes after sunrise.

Bringing this back from the dead.  I just replaced 4 HS100s with KP200s.  The HS100s had the offset feature but the KP200s do not.  Very frustrating to update to a newer product and lose features.  The link you provided to FAQ 1390 (Q17) said the KP200 should support the offset feature, but here we are 7 months after this thread was started and still nothing.  The FAQ was even updated on 02/2020 and it still says the KP200 should support the feature.  The sole purpose of these plugs in my home is to turn lights on/off and actual sunset time is too dark to wait for lights to turn on.  They are all on Hardware V1 and Firmware 1.0.7.  Kasa app and iOS are up to date.
