I have set up Kasa plugs at two different houses. I had set up scheduled at both. Now returning to my first house the one plug say "Local Only" and gives me a connection error when I select schedule.

  @bw75,

If youre devices are showing Local Only, that means that the device has become disconnected from either your Wifi Network or the Cloud. This means that the device can only be controlled while you are connected to either the device or the network and not from outside of your network. The first step for troubleshooting is to attempt to reconnect your smart plug to your network. 
Our Smart Plugs have two different resets possible a soft reset, which will reset only the network settings, and a hard reset which will perform a factory reset. I recommend starting with a soft reset and reconnecting to see if that will connect the device to the cloud. More information about how to do so can be found here: Resetting a Plug - Soft and Factory Resets

We are having this same problem today again too. It was mentioned in a previous post (2019??) hat this had been "resolved"... apparently not.

FYI... restarting our router and changing our DNS had no effect.

I have having the "local only" issue with 1 of my devices. KP303 power strip. I recently moved and this was one of the first ones I set up. It is updated to the new WiFi router and works when I'm at home. I would like to fix this issue.
