@jlboggsCO it shouldn't be down to us to write script for this function to work.

tplink/kasa need to Sort this out can't be that hard to implement the update!

@Andyboy1 the irony is if you open the kasa app and choose any or your lights and hit color, circling your finger around produces the desired effect... So the app literally does it already, just not automatically 😕

Got a git hub or link to your code?

Yes I also want to amplify how valuable this feature would be to add to the app.

@Thomas_Crane I'll see if I can disconnect the code from my existing smarthome installation and get it in a public github repo.  Fair warning, my code is complete garbage.  In the meantime, I'd recommend setting up a test VM (I prefer VirtualBox and Ubuntu 20.04 Server) and installing the python-kasa library with pip3.

@jlboggsCO Can you give us a little bit more detail?

 

Is not clear at all what needs to be done, and how, and to make it work in which way.

 

thanks!!

@EricDimitri using this requires a little knowledge of Linux, git, and command line usage. The only advice I can really give is to read the readme file in the repo.

no doubt that this is a valuable missing feature! It seems like TPLink would have no trouble implementing this.
