We have been told by the development team that because of how the two KS230 switches communicate with each other, even with the 2nd switch being a non-wireless dummy switch, the KS230 is unable to be used in a 4 or 5-way environment.

Since the KS230s will not work, are there any Kasa dimmer switches/kit that will work in a 4-way configuration?

  @Extio I am curious about this too.. I would like to install more kasa products in my house but I need to find a solution for 3 dimmer locations (4 way setup) for some lights... let me know if you found out anything. Thanks!

  @Carl is it possible to use a ks230 main with multiple satellite switchs wired in parallel?

The HS210 3-way switch can work but it is still outside the design of the product.  This FAQ may help.

At this time we are being told by the design team that the KS230 can only be used in a 3-way enviroment.  Beyond the 2 switches prime and satalite(dummy) it would not work.  If that changes I will be happy to let the community know.

  @Extio it works but it's expensive to do until TP-Link starts selling additional satellite switchs. Basically you will need to buy 2 ks230 kits for almost $100 for a 3 location light control. On the plus side you can dim from any of the three locations. I have it working in a 4 location setup. It's not officially supported so your milage may vary.
