I have an older home and I want to replace a dual gang light switch with a smart one. Since my smart outlets are contrrolled by Kasa app, I though, it might be beneficial if my switch was of the same brand., But All I am coming up in my searches is the single gang light switches. Is there any hope for me ?

 

This is what I am looking for (similar to this)

We only sell the single switches. 

 

Here is a video of a reviewer that installed on in a double gang settings. Others reported that the HS200 takes up a bit more space then the original switches.

This could be what you need, it's not metal so it will not block the signal.

Thank you both for the answers. 

Since I need to replace both switches (inside lights and outside lights next to main entrance) will having two separate single switches cause any problem with crowding of the wires ?

Here is a youtube showing 2 gang install of smartswitchs.

Make sure you turn the power off.

The video is dangerous, never ever work on electrical without securing power first. Also, nothing special, he just kept tightening and un-tightening the switches until they fit the plate, all sorts of wrong in that video.

Turn power off, remove plate, CLEAR all debris from current gang box, pull all wires out straight, twist-cap the wires to the new switches, tuck back each set slowly and all the way back (TP-Link/Kasa switches are deep), screw in switches but keep loose, apply Non-toggle switch plate to the switches wiggling left to right to get fitment, slowly pull plate off, tighten screws on switches, re-apply plate (prepare for swtches to need more adjusting, do not force plate on), screw plate in (do not over-tighten).
