Model: HS210
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.5.8

Hello,

 

I am outfitting my recently purchased home with Kasa smart switches because I installed them in my previous home and loved the functionality. I have installed them in most of my desired locations, but am having an issue with one set of three-way switches. The "dumb" switches work as intended, but when I wire up the HS210 in the same manner, it does not function properly. When installed, the HS210 only receives power when the other dumb switch is switched one way. When the HS210 is powered, the lights switch on then off very quickly, and the switch appears to power cycle or restart. I have tried to place the HS210 in each location, and the same problem persists.

 

I have attached pictures of the "dumb" switches as currently configured, as well as a diagram if the pictures are not clear. Can anyone offer some advice?

@Kevin_R 

You are having trouble because there is not a neutral in your wiring.

The two whites in the first photo is a pass through of the white common/line in the second photo

@B.Will Thank you for the input. Is there any way I can rewire the sitches to make the HS210 work?

@Kevin_R 

Sorry no.

I can see in the first picture that there are 2 grounds, that tells me there is not a third cable with a neutral.
