Firmware Version: 1.0.8

Hello, I want to use the Kasa smart plug to turn my wifi router off at night.  The schedule works to turn off the router, but it does not turn on again in the morning.  According to the Kasa FAQ, the schedule should still work even without internet, as it is located on the plug itself: https://www.tp-link.com/no/support/faq/1390/#:~:text=Will%20the%20Timer%20and%20Schedule,lost%20they%20will%20still%20function.

What am I missing?

I would like to double confirm with you, are you using the Schedule feature of the smart plug? Or did you create an automation rule to control the smart plug?

 

Automation is a cloud-based feature and it cannot work without internet connection.

  @Wayne-TP Hi, yes - I did use the schedule feature on the phone app to set the off and on times for the plug.  It does not seem to be remembering the on time.

Instead of controlling the router, try switching to a different appliance to test this feature first, such as a lamp. 

 

Disable the internet access for this Kasa plug through the router, then create several schedules with short intervals to observe if it takes effect.
