Issue with 3 ways switches HS210
Issue with 3 ways switches HS210
2021-04-24 19:53:30
Model: HS210
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.1.4

I have installed the switches and the wiring seems correct as they work perfectly in manual mode.

 

Tap Switch A -> Lights On

Tap Switch A -> Lights Off

Tap Switch A -> Lights On

Tap Switch B -> Lights Off

Tap Switch B -> Lights On

Tap Switch A -> Lights Off

 

The issue is that every command given in the Mobile App has to be given twice to be effective.

So I have to give two "Power On" commands to be effective, then the "Power Off" twice to turn it off.

 

Power On -> Lights Off

Power On -> Lights On

Power Off -> Lights On

Power Off -> Lights Off

 

And so on, This is very annoying when using vocal assistants e.g. Google Home or Alexa.

 

Has anyone faced the same issue and eventually fixed it? 
 

Thank you

 

A.

@ABx See the sticky thread on the HS210 Tutorial - Only install a SINGLE HS210 and leave the load-end switch as a 'dumb' switch. That will greatly simplify things for you PLUS give an additional free switch to use on another circuit!

@Bethel.8009 

Thanks - what kind of switch should I install as "dumb" one? A regular switch?

That would not be ideal as it would show two different switches styles in the same room

@ABx - what do you have now, an older style toggle switch or a newer Decora Rocker/paddle type? 

 

If you install a Decora Style it should look very similar to the Kasa (other than the little LED) 

There are lots of different brands available as well as shades of white! 

Leviton and Legrand are two that appear to be a good match aesthetically even when used in the same 2 or 3 gang as the Kasa 

It does of course have to be a 3-way switch 

 

This is one I have personally used - https://www.amazon.com/Legrand-Pass-Seymour-TM873WCC-Paddle-Switch/dp/B000BQUUVC/

 

 

 

From this thread , @Senior_Vagabond used Levition and seemed satisfied with the match. 

HD should carry that - cheap enough so you can try & see how you like it.
