Model: KC120
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 2.2.19

So I set up the camera via the kasa app and it's connected to my wifi network and is viewable on the kasa app

 

I went to the google home app and added the tp-link kasa extension and added the camera to my Google home

 

When I tell Google to show me the camera on my TV, I get a tp-link kasa loading screen but then it seems as it gets stuck and nothing ever loads. A few minutes later the chromecast backs out into screen saver mode. The only other app I use with my chromecast is netflix and that never has any issues.

 

Any troubleshooting tips?

 

Thanks!

Does the video stream work on your phone using the Kasa app?

 

Make sure the email that was used in the Kasa app is the same one authorized when setting up your Google Home.

 

Have you tried re-enabling the extension?

 

With respect to your network, are the Kasa camera and Chromecast both connected to yoru wireless router or through a range extender?

I'm gonna try the email thing.  My Google home is set up on one email and my cam is set up on another, but why would would that matter? G Home still recognizes the camera so why can't it stream w/o being on the same acct?

With respect to the email when you activate the TP-Link extension and "sign in" the account you provide should be the same Kasa account on the Kasa app. What you have for your Google account will not matter.

 

Are you using any sort of range extender in your network?
