100% Brightness when turning on Dimmer switch?

100% Brightness when turning on Dimmer switch?
100% Brightness when turning on Dimmer switch?
2022-01-09 20:09:58
Model: HS220
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have the HS220 (Light Switch Dimmer) and currently if I have the lights dim, turn off the switch and turn it back on they remain dim.
 

Is there anything I'm overlooking to set them to go back to 100% when turned on? I have a few Kasa smart bulbs and they have a software setting so you can set which brightness they turn back on to.


As a workaround right now I'm using an automation in SmartThings to set the dimming to 100% when the switch turns on but I'd rather not have to use SmartThings at all (this automation is the only reason I have that app).

Hi @Spoolin   

Thanks for reaching out to us. Sorry to reply you late. 

You can set one preset to 100% brightness. In that case, you can dim HS220 to 100% when the switch turns on via this preset.

For detailed preset setup steps, you can refer to this user guide

  @Myapps Are you saying after I turn on the switch I need to manually select the 100% preset or are you saying when it turns on there is a way for it to automaticlly run my preset? I don't see anything (obvious) in the app or that manual that shows how to load a preset when the switch is turned on. I only see options to load a preset when holding or double pressing the switch.

Hi @Spoolin 

Thanks for getting back. 

You don't need to turn on the HS220 first and then choose preset. You can tap on HS220 icon without turning it on and then choose 100% preset in the Status page to turn on HS220. In that case, HS220 can go back to 100% when turned on.

  @Myapps 

 

Sorry if my post wasn't clear. I was talking about pressing the physical switch to turn it on, not using the Kasa iOS app. 

 

If the lights are dim when I turn off the  physical switch I want them to be 100% bright the next time I turn on the physical switch (I don't want to have to go into the app and change anything in between turning it off and back on).

Hi @Spoolin 

Thanks for your explanation. 

On HS220, there is not such a button that you can adjust the light to 100% brightness with just one click. But there is dimming button through which you can adjust the light brightness to 100%.
