I have plugs that I use with my Google home. Now all of sudden, it won't link up. It no longer shows kasa as being linked with my Google home and when I go to add it, it won't and just goes to the home screen on Google again. Any ideas??

FIXED - I went into each device and turned on Remote Access. They all said local only. I think this lets them be controlled by the Cloud and this is how Google gets access.

Same here. I removed Kasa from Google Home and added it back. Now it does not show as linked, but I cannot add it again. I also can't update Google Assistant, it says Kasa can only be updated by the same user that added it. But it is the same user. Prior to this all but 4 of my Kasa devices disappeared, and some were randomly turning on. Kasa works fine with my Hubitat still, but I dis have to re-add all the devices there,

@ScottF @mushroom_hunter 

Thank you for your valuable feedback.

 

May I have a photo of the Error or a photo where you met trouble when try to add Kasa devices back to Google home app? What is the Model of your cell phone and its Andriod or IOS version?  Thank you. 

 

Please make sure Kasa app version, Google Home app, and the firmware of Kasa devices are the latest version. 

You should also be able to control Kasa devices on Kasa app remotely first before control them on Google.  ( when cell phone is on mobile data or non-local Wifi)

@mushroom_hunter 

 

I am having this problem and the Kasa power board doesn't have Remote Control selection in the app.

 

Tried all the methods above.

 

Can anyone help?
