Hi, I am looking for a wifi smart plug that I can schedule to turn on and off daily, and will hold its schedule locally vs. in the cloud.  In other words, if my internet goes down I need the schedule to still happen.  Will the TP Link Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug Lite do this?

Yes it will. You can have 31 events scheduled

The schedules are saved in the smart plugs memory so if your internet goes down the schedules will still work.

@Tony What will be the smart plug behaviour (schedule functionality) if the local Wi-Fi connection is down - for example the router is turned off? My observation is that if the Wi-Fi led is red the schedule will not work.

The schedules should still run. 

 

In your case, if there is no Wi-Fi the schedules do not run?

@Tony I have made few tests with turned off wi-fi signal and the behaviour is strange.

1) The current state of the plug was OFF and I expected ON - didn't switch

2) The current state was ON and I expected OFF  - switched successfuly but 25 minutes later the next event (form OFF to ON) didn't hepan.

3) Same as 2) but evrithing have working fine.

I have check the scheduler few times and everithing is as expected. I will make more test.

Was the device used for testing a device that turns on right when it get power? For example, I used a USB power adapter to earphones so I can tell when there is or isn't power.

 

If you use a TV for example that still requires you to press the power button even after it has power to it then the plug can't turn that on.

@oodly   Sometimes.  What I have experienced its hit or miss.  Sometimes the schedule will still execute....sometimes it wont.

I had an issue where a plug and a bulb did not turn off when the internet was off.
