Model: Tapo P100  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have a light on my fish tank.  It has three modes controlled by switching on/off within 5 seconds.

 

But I cannot appear to add the same device twice on an activity.

 

For now I have got around this by adding a second automation, triggered by the switch going off, to swich it on again, but that has its own issues.

 

Any idea how to add the same plug twice in an activity?

 

Cheers

You're able to set the same smart plug as the Trigger and Action device in the same automation rule, such as "When Plug A turns on, Then turn off Plug A". 

 

What's the version of your Tapo App? Make sure the App and device's firmware is always updated to obtain the best use experience.

  @Wayne-TP  yep, got that far, but sometimes I need to do on/off three times in 15 seconds.

But I now have a solution as I found a Python library that connects and a few lines of code pls CRON jobs on Raspberry pi has sorted.

But of course that option isn't open to ei.

Cheers
