Kasa Smart Plug Mini controlled by an existing dimmer switch
Are the Kasa smart plugs NOT compatible with an existing (dumb) dimmer switch?
I have an LED light fixture that I control with a dimmer switch. I don't have a neutral wire to use a smart switch, so was hoping to use a Kasa Smart Plug Mini to simply turn the light on or off with my phone / voice and leave the existing dimmer switch turned on, set to my desired brightness level.
However, even with the dimmer switch turned on and set at max brightness level, neither of the Kasa mini's I plug into the [dimmer controlled] outlet will even light up to begin the wifi setup procedure. If I plug the mini's into some other outlet (controlled by a standard switch or not) they work as expected.
Am I doing something wrong, or am I out of luck trying to use a smart plug on a circuit controlled by an existing dimmer switch?
Wondering what my options are to be able to control my dimmable LED fixtures using Kasa smart products when I don't have a neutral wire. Home built in 1956.
