Model: HS300
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Product request:

* A standaone remote control for HS300

** Remote has 1 button per outlet you want to control (NO menus, no navigation, just simple 1:1 mapping between remote buttons and the power strip like you see in older "NON-IOT wireless outlet remotes")

** remote uses simplest wireless technology that supports pairing (BT zigbee whatever, just not wifi... think of how the Lutron lighting switch remotes pair and work)

 

Generic Use case: 

* Consumer actively manages power on the HS300, but does not want or need to build their own custom remote device which uses your API. That's a lot of work for a customer.

* The point behind the 1:1 remote button simplicity and allow the customer to do something custom without ever touching the power strip itself..

 

My Use Case:

Specifically, I am managing a rack full of devices in a 12U server rack.

Right now, in order for me to access your on/off buttons, I have to position your power strip OUTSIDE the server rack. The HS300 is really nice, and far cheaper than a $300 networked 1U PDU. 

 

((I could accomplish what I want using those older, non-Kasa radio-based power outlet remotes, but those are becoming harder to find now and I would be crowding in outlet dongles which is not ideal))

We don't have anything like this in the pipeline but what you could do is use the Kasa app's grouping feature.  You can then link all 6 switches to a single button on the man screen of the Kasa app.  To do a grouping press the "+" > Tap group > tap on the products and finally give the group a name.
