Model: HS220  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 1.0.3

I have currently some led ceiling lights controlled by HS220 v1 FW1.5.11 and they have been working fine.  Recently I picked up some HS220 v3 FW1.0.3 and I replaced 2 of the V1s but now the lights would flicker when I try to dim them.  I went back to the V1s and the lights work perfectly fine, zero flicker.

 

The app saids I'm running on the newest firmware, the dimming setup in the app is setup to the same power level and I wired them exactly the same.  

Is there any reason why v3 would flicker when v1 doesn't?  Maybe I should return all the v3s and wait for KS225 instead.

 Hello  @GonGon 

Thank you for reaching out. 

The flickering dimming Led dot should be the common behavior on the V3 switch if all three of them behave the same, it can be the slight difference from V1 version. 

 

KS225 should be a Matter certified device based on some pre-released information, but the release date is not yet confirmed and could take longer.

If you'd are not in a hurry to swap the switches in your house and could wait, you can keep an eye on the Kasa website for this new model.
