Is the firmware rolling out as well?  I have the new iOS app, but need the firmware!

Firmware is curretly being tested by our QA team, and once that is done it will be released as well.

Thanks Tony.  Would have been helpful to put that in the note!

I made sure to edit it. Thanks.

All my smart plug minis disconnected today and won't reconnect.  I'm using iOS 13.  Please advise. 

Start at the router, then inspect one of the plugs, see what the LED light is indicating, might give you a clue what could be going on.

    anyone see how to set this ? 

"•    You can now include offsets when scheduling with sunrise and sunset"  

where are offsets defined ? 

TIA 

 

 

so I asked TP-Link this question in Chat ... .    WTH ? 

" The feature of the sunset offset will soon to be realease on the different firmware version of the kasa app"

and 

"

yes , i understand. Im sorry but we dont have the exact date/firmware version." 

 

 

what lousy Customer support .. they had it in the current version release notes , but did not deliver it ....... terrible 

Yea, the feature update announcement, without the new firmware, seems a bit premature. It would be helpful if this thread was updated (new reply) when the FW is available, so we all don't need to check every day. 

The release was pushed to resolve the iOS 13 onboarding issues or users with iPhones couldn't even add a smart device.

 

The features are in line to be released as noted in the release notes. Once the firmware has been cleared and is good to go will be released soon after, and this story will be updated to reflect that as well.

 

Rest assured the features stated will eventually be made available.

Can't wait!
