Model: HS220  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.5.8

It seems it's not currently possible to enable "Away" mode with the HS220 dimmer switch (but it is possible with the regular HS200). Are there any plans to implement it in the future?

We looked into it, and it seems like there are no plans to implement away mode for the HS220.

That's disappointing to hear. It doesn't make sense to me that a newer switch would be lacking in functionality that the original had (especially when, from a software perspective, it's simply turning the switch off and on). I'll just have to

It is really not clear that the HS220 dimmers don't have the Away Mode feature.  I purchased 5 switches and 4 dimmers and will be returning them all since the dimmers don't have away mode.

@Tony hello, i just bought HS220 dimmer switch and it seems that it doesn't have away mode available like the other switches and plugs. Is it normal or there is a software upgrade to make it work properly?

From my post in June of last year up to January of this year when we inquired again, it still stands there is no plan to implement it.

@Casey69 Just purchased a 3 pk of these HS220 smart switches.  After installing the 1st one I discovered that the away mode was not there.  After extensive searching I found this thread.   I am very disappointed that Kasa/TP-Link has decided to leave this feature out of theses switches.  The amazon ad listed it as a feature and it was a main reason for my deciding to purchase their switches.   I will be returning them and giving TreatLife's smart switches a try since they say that they support an away mode like feature.   
 

this is a major misstep by Kasa/TP-Link. ☹️
