Kasa 3-way wall switch issue

Model: HS210
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

The way my outside garage lights are wired for the 3-way switch, there is a white or neutral wire that is accessable from within the garage, but not in the house, so the Kasa switch set will not work. 

 

Wemo however sells a single 3-way switch that will do the job (see attached picture). I have a house full of Kasa/TP Link products that I have set up with schedules and through Alexa and I love the way it all works together, so I really do not want to have to introduce another product brand into the mix.  Do you ever see Kasa selling a single 3-way switch the same as the Wemo smart wifi 3-way light switch (model: WLS0403-CA).  This makes more sense than having to install 2 wifi switches to do the same job.

Hello @CDNBeerman 

HS210 could work with an ordinary 3 way switch, and in that scenario, the HS210 must be installed on the Line side ( Line is energized when tested with a voltage tester)

You could test Common Wire in the wall: it could be Line/ Load (connected to a different color screw, usually ' Black' screw), and check if the wall box in garage with neutral is the Line side.

Q13: Can I use HS210 KIT with ordinary three-way switch?

I hope this helps!

@Solla-topee ...and I have added 1 3-way switch as needed and I am very pleased.  Once again, thank you.

Thank you so much for your response. After having submitted my question, I went searching again and actually found the switch sold as 1 and not a 2 pack so that reassured me I was not correct. Once again thank you.
