I can't find any information about how Tapo is different from TP-Link.

The only official info I read is that Tapo is an off-shoot from TP-Link. 

 

My question is in terms of products, why have two brands?

Example, the smart plug.

On TP-Link side there's the HS100. On the Tapo side there's the P100.

 

Wouldn't this be confusing for customers?

My only guess is that TP-Link will migrate their smart home products under Tapo? surprise

I think tapo was an acquistion, which usually makes integration a problem.  More worrying is that it would be the end of kasa by making them orphans replaced by tapo...  it would be nice to hear from TP Link about their strategy.

@MikeP 

Good day.

Sorry for the delay.

Kasa would not be replaced by Tapo and till now, there is also no intention to integrate them together.

So For fairly a long time, they could still be independent to each other;

The huge difference might be that they target to different markets, especially European countries;

 

Thank you very much.
