Does anyone know if the wire on the KL430 from the controller to the light strip is rated for in-wall installation?  I can't seem to find anything on it, which leads me to believe it's probably not.

Because it is low voltage, it should be OK as long as you do not put it in the same box with house wiring.

@B.Will  I know, I'm pretty sure that it should be ok, but I could be selling my house in a few years.  I just want to make sure that it would pass an inspection, and want to do it the right way before putting tile on the wall.  I did just find AWG style 2464 25AWG 80C 300V VW-1 FT1 on the cable, but I don't know if that can be translated into class 2.

 

The other options I can think of would be cutting the cable and using cat5e or speaker wire I have laying around which are both rated for in-wall, but I'd really rather not cut any cables unless necessary.  It's in a kitchen, the plug is in a cabinet under the countertop, and the lights are going on a floating shelf above the counter where installing an electrical outlet wasn't an option.

I thought it might be ok as well, but I found these sections in the manual: 

 

 

So if there are any regulations that need to be met I probably would not do it.

I put it in a cabinet, just as long as it’s not likely to get hit by something that will damage the sheathing it’ll be fine. I’m pretty sure that note is a cya for Kasa so they don’t get sued for someone being stupid. But really it shouldn’t be a problem and I doubt any inspector would even notice.

If after setting up the light strip the same section does not light up at all there may be an issue with it. I would reach out to our support team at that point.
