HS200 causing GFCI to trigger.

HS200 causing GFCI to trigger.

Hardware Version :

Firmware Version :

Connected my new HS200 smart switch and its causing my GFCI outlet which is right next to it. As soon as I disconnect one of the lines of the HS200, it's fine. It seems like the electronics of the HS200 are messing with the GFCI.

Has anyone else seen this issue?
Maybe my GFCI is too sensitive?

Thanks

It could be a problem with the switch, but the first thing to check is that it's wired properly.

If your intention is for the switch to be protected by the GFCI you need to be sure BOTH the line in and neutral are from the GFCI LOAD side and the switch is properly grounded.
If your intention is to run the switch separately (the more common case) you need to be sure BOTH the line in and neutral are direct from the incoming line wire or the LINE side of the GFCI (and properly grounded).

I know this is an older post but ...

I had a similar issue - the HS200 was on a GFCI protected circuit (at the breaker).

I switched the load and the hot connections and the issue resolved. While the HS200 may not care which of the black wires is hot and which is the load, it matters on a GFCI protected circuit.

@rbuchanan I am having this issue right now. Tried your suggestion and still tripping the gfci. 
 

Anyone have another idea?  I have verified the wiring already. Everything is hooked up correctly. This is about my tenth smart switch install, but first on a gfci circuit.

Anybody find a way to make this work?

@markayash No. I went back and forth several times with TP-Link support. Did several electrical checks at their request. Never figured anything out.

@bucktim Also having this issue, so I have Line > GFCI Outlet > Smart Switch >Outdoor Outdoor outlet.

 

The GFCI Outlet and Smart Switch are both bundled to the same Lines and Neutrals. 

 

This is tripping the GFCI Outlet. 

 

Anyone have any advice?

@AMDamage I as well am having this issue. I literally thought my switches were bad. I have a GFI on the circuit as well as a GFI breaker on this circuit (I'm assuming having both is a common thing). The weird thing is I had one of the 3 way switches already hooked up months ago and has been working fine, I just now am upgrading the second 3 way on this circuit and it is NOT having it at all. Is there a workaround? I really want this to work.

@bucktim - I finally got it to work by separating the neutrals. I was installing an HS200 switch from the load legs of a GFCI. It was tripping. The neutral on the LINE side follows neutral back towards the fuse panel. The neutral on the LOAD side connects only to the switch and the outlet on the switch side.

@SedonaGeorge Hey, how's that app launch coming?? I'm looking for exactly what you are making. Twice our GFCI tripped--we ALMOST lost $900 worth of food each time. Why doesn't the KASA app notify you when one of its devices goes offline??

I have a HS 200 v2 that had been working fine for a year. Now it is tripping the GFCI right next to it. 

With the switch not being on to energise the load, why would the GFCI trip? Technically the only thing in the circuit is the wifi switch itself, right? 

If the switch has failed, will it cause the GFCI to see a ground fault?  

It's kind of difficult to get at the switch, or I would have put a standard switch in already to see if that made a difference.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
