  @asdasdasdasdasd Try deleting the device in the Kasa App and rediscovering and see it works after that.

I think there may have been a TPLink Cloud issue over the last few days (see my post on that for my own situation - which in my case the devices were completely unresponsive in Alexa even though working normally in Kasa App)

It's somewhat odd that you can still turn on/off but not dim - in the Device on the Alexa App, do you actually see the dimming control, it just won't do anything?

  @DEcosse That worked for me.  Fixed in Alexa.  Thx.

 

(I'd like to keep everything local in HomeAssistant, but too advanced for me atm.)

  @DEcosse 

 

I am having this issue as well. I've deleted the switch from Alexa as well as the Kasa app and still cannot get it to dim using Alexa. Any additional help is appreciated. Thank you!
