The Kasa app will control the plug. I disabled the skill in Alexa to troubleshoot and now it will not enable. It returns 500 Internal Server Error. Not sure if this is TP-Link issue or Amazon. I just want to go back to bossing my house around.

There have been numerous threads about this. TP Link suffered a catastrophic failure of one of their cloud based servers, and many of us got an email about this. All we can do is wait for some notification (hopefully) that the servers have been restored...Mike

I think things are still down. I can't sign on to enable the skill either. Patience...

I solved the issue which lots of other people had where the Alexa Android app wouldn't enable/authorise the Kasa smarthome skill. Instead of trying to set it up through the Alexa app, instead use a PC and browse to https://alexa.amazon.co.uk instead. This gives the same interface as the Alexa app and you can enable and install the Kasa skill in the same way, but this time it worked. After doing this I was able to configure it in the Android Alexa app as normal.
