Would love to see a trigger on IFTTT or some sort of native functionality in the Kasa app that would allow me to activate a smart plug when I manually press a smart switch. I'm looking to activate lights on both sides of my bed with a single button press since the regular plugs aren't wired together, or perhaps press a switch to occasionally activate a scene once I walk through the door. Has anyone had any luck setting up something like this? If not, is there any chance Kasa might have something like this in the works?

With IFTTT you are not able to select TP-Link Kasa as a trigger service, only as the action part. So when you create a new applet, you can configure: If this (trigger service) then that (action service). The trigger could be setting a date or when you are at a geographical location or you can tie in other services or apps.

 

Thank you for the suggestion though, we always forward suggestions we receive to our developers to help make a our products better for the customer experience.

I would also love to see this functionality; it is one of the reasons I bought smart devices and I am disapointed it is not available.

 

The feature could also be internal to the Kasa app, perhaps allowing the smart switch to control an entire group in addition to the physical connection.
