Hi,

 

The answer to your question will depend on what model of Tapo switch you are considering.

 

Tapo switches that support Wi-Fi can be directly connected to a Wi-Fi network, while Tapo switches that only support TP-Link's propriatary wireless require a Tapo hub.

  @woozle  Thank you. I couldn't connect the TCP-Link smart switch to wifi and one gang switch was intermittent. I contacted the TCP customer service and was told that the TAPO switch would work through the TL-WPA8630. It didn't so I bought a TAPO hub H100 and that works with the app  in the house on battery power. Will connect to the lights in the studio tomorrow and hopefully all will be well.
