Apple HomeKit, Shortcuts, non HomeKit Kasa smart plugs
One thing I still find confusing and upset about is that, my non HomeKit Kasa plugs work fine with Apple Shortcuts. The Kasa logo even shows up on each and light, etc. go on and off when I tap the short cut.
But at the same time (except for the Kasa plugs sold at Target and Best Buy,) Kasa plugs are not HomeKit compatible for automation. I know because I tried for the past 20 months to get it to work and only recently realized they are not.
So, why is there no Shortcut, that links to HomeKit, which in turn, links to your other Shortcuts for the non HomeKit Kasa plugs? This would be a fine if slower solution. I cannot code, otherwise, I would make one.
Also, there is a notice on the Kasa app via hamburger menu/Discover Kasa (seen before and again with recent update and there as I type this) that specifically says that Siri (that is the voice part of this) can work with Kasa plugs. It even mentioned HomePod! (voice only)
What gives tp-link?
