I have a few HS100/HS110 plugs all work fine in Kasa app on Android phone and have done for over a year. Kasa says firmware is up to date on all plugs. I created a very simple Scene called "ALL OFF" and use the widget to switch off all 6 plugs simultaneously. The Scene works.

I've now installed an Echo Plus and Alexa app. I can say "Alexa Plug One on" or "Alexa Plug One off" for example and can turn on/off that or any other named plug by voice. So far so good.

What I can't work out is how to use the Kasa Scenes in Alexa. The Scenes I have created are listed in Alexa app but I don't know what to say to tell Alexa to switch ALL OFF. If I say "Alexa scene all off" I just get back "all off doesn't support that".

 

Is there a guide to using Kasa Scenes in Alexa?

@ccseas 

Good day.

Have you ever tried to set up a group on the Alexa so that you could turn off all plugs as a group?

Thank you!

@Brook of course I could try what you suggest..

But your reply doesn't address the issue.

 

Which is that Alexa automagically imported 6 devices (plugs) and 2 Scenes from the Kasa app.

 

If Alexa cannot use the Scenes yet the tp-link Kasa skill allows them to be imported by Alexa then that implies there is a bug in the tp-link Kasa skill code.

Before I leave a review about the  skill I wanted to make sure what I say is correct.

 

Anyone actually got this to work as described in OP?
