@Googs No new firmware yet. I've just ordered a load of Broadcom SP4L units instead - they're £15.59 for a twin pack on Amazon now

Cheers @roryd  had not seen those before. Nice one.

The one review on it at the moment is preventing me from just chancing them but they look to fit the bill for sure. 

 

I like the power monitoring of the HS110 and if this integration issue doesn't get worked out they will be the next stop for sure. 

def can't argue with the price

So what is the current status? Is there any sign of an update to resolve this issue.

@Googs turns out those Broadlink SP4L-UK units aren't supported by the integration yet 😕

I purchased two KP400 outdoor plugs and received them last week.  The first thing they did was a firmware upgrade after getting a network connection.  They are now at hardware version 2.0 and firmware version 1.0.6.  I assume this issue also impacts the KP400 as I was unable to get Home Assistant to discover them.  Can anyone confirm if this does impact the KP400 units, and if so if an integration will be provided to support local API usage with HA?

 

Also is there a possibility of utilizing a remote API for HA?  I haven't looked to be honest, so perhaps there is.  I was thinking that perhaps a remote API integration would be better than nothing, although this is painful when there is lack of Internet obviously.

 

I was debating on just sending the two KP400 units back to Amazon if they won't work with HA.  While the Kasa app is nice, without HA, I cannot integrate them with my other smart home platforms and they are not as useful to me.

 

Thanks all.

@MLJenkins I got couple of KP400s (before I learned about this fiasco) and setup, they received updates immediately after connecting to the internet, so they both show hardware version: 2.0, firmware version 1.0.6. I am able to access these via Home Assistant (as of this writing it is working). I am from US region if that matters.

@Googs I manually added an entry to the init.py file and the SP4L-UK units work, and there's now a pull request with this pending merging into the library, so it should be generally available shortly.

@Brook 

Asking for a family member:

 

Will the following firmware updates break anything with the old API / Home Assistant?

 

  • 1.1.3 for US/Canada H103 HW V2.1
  • 1.1.4 for US/Canada HS200 HW V3.0

 

The release notes state Wi-Fi and other stability improvements.
