Model: HS200
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version:

I have 4 HS200 switches on a schedule for my outdoor lights and all of them randomly turn off and back on and vice versa.

 

Here is what happens: 

  1. The switch will either be on or off and it will randomly flicker - if the switch is on, it will turn off and back on and if the switch is off, it will turn on and back off. 
  2. When the switch goes back to its original state, the wifi logo blinks and then it operates normal. 


This happens several times a day and it is very annoying. 

 

Couple things i have tried: 

 

  • I have double-checked the wiring. The neutral connection is fine. The switch turns on per the schedule and turns off fine.
  • I have removed them from Google Home set up as i read this somewhere - it didnt help. 

 

Wondering if anyone else is encountering this issue.

What is the color of the Wi-Fi logo when the issue happens?

 

Have you had a chance to look in your app? Do the smart switch show different during this?

@Sreyw Hi. I am having this same issue with my HS200 and HS210. Did you ever get it resolved?

Nope never worked. Returned all of the TP link switches and moved over to lutron.

Do you by chance have a multi Access Point network in your environment that your devices are connected to?

 

If so, what brand/model?

 

There are a couple posts at the below thread that are exploring this with a possible workaround for the quick off/on problem when these smart switches hop nodes.

So far seen on a Deco Mesh system and a Tp-link Omada system with EAP225 V3 AP's.  Small sample so far, but gotta start somewhere.  This is an annoying problem.

Oh yes i actually do. I have 4 AP's. Coincidentally they are also TP Link. That might explain it.
