This question applies to the following devices:
(I own all of the above)
(And could also include Tp-link's Smart bulbs... And the whole Kasa Family of devices).
Many brands and systems are migrating to being able to control locally (without an outside of the network server/cloud)..
Every now and then, I see a message on my devices that sais "Local Only".
Does this mean that it's being handled directly inside my network?
If it doesn't have this message, is it handled through Tp-link's servers?
Is there a way to handle my devices locally always and if I'm away through Tp-link's servers?
