Hi, I'm having the same issue after the last update, before it was working well.

Would you have any updates in how to solve it?

Thanks.

@Vmbc 

Just checked again - PadOS 13.4.1 - there appears to be a change in behaviour from my original issue.

I had KASA devices in the widget area and they work fine, but KASA scenes in the widget area responded with "something went wrong".

Activating scenes from within the KASA app works ok.  Also activating scenes from the IFTTT app works ok.

I also checked my iPhone and found the same thing.

This is now fixed - on both phone and pad I deleted the scene that failed to work from widgets, and simply created it again.  Now it works.

Didn't notice earlier because I'd stopped using the KASA widget.

I hope you have similar success.

@HellDad The issue fixed itself for me over the last couple of days. Not sure how, as I made no changes and it doesn't look like the Kasa app updated itself.

@Vmbc I solved the issue by going to Settings > Time & Location > and reselecting my location and time zone. Then back out of settings and force quit the app. Restart the app and then check if the widget updates. It should then.

@HellDad 

Since I last wrote, the Kasa automations have stopped working.  Neither the new Kasa "Smart Actions" nor the link via IFTTT work.

I haven't tried complete uninstallation and re-installation yet.  I can still control my Kasa switch from the app.

Since starting this issue, I have bought another LIFX light bulb, so I now have no active KASA switches installed. The LIFX bulbs are Apple Homekit compatible, and work much more reliably with automations, although not perfect. Good luck everyone!

@Emoeric87 I had this same problem on 2 of 3 iOS devices and this fix worked for me. Thanks.

Had the same issue.  Restarted my iphone and they showed up.  The widget does not show the status of my switches though.  The on button is white and the off button is dark but they don't change, although they function.

 

Hope it helps.
