  @PDonges87,

My most recent post about the KS240s potential device availability can be found in this thread: https://community.tp-link.com/us/smart-home/forum/topic/604978?replyId=1234824

Due to the Amount of Requests, I will provide any information I can as soon as I get my hands on it - so just make sure to keep an eye out.

  @Riley_S, will Kasa also add 3 way dimmer switches that support matter? If so, where can I learn more of any such upcoming products?

 

Thanks

  @tjacobhi,

I will definitely provide an update when a 3-Way Switch with matter compatibility is released. Most of the releases that we are seeing were first teased or announced during CES - so we will definitely see more announced over the coming months.

 

I cannot imagine that we would not release a device for this purpose, it may simply take slightly longer as we are essentially seeing the release of the most basic form of smart home products with matter. I will see if i can dig up any information about a prospective release, however, you will most likely need to wait for a larger announcement from the company later in the year.

  @Riley_S Any news on whether older devices (such as KS220, KS200, KS230) may be upgradable to support matter?

  @ff1,

While I have no news, I think that it is something that should not be relied upon for a few reasons. One, we are not seeing too many devices, from any brand, being updated to support Matter. The only cases that we see are situations in which matter compatibility is added through a separate hub that communicates with the devices which is something that the teams are looking at for our exiting Tapo sensors. 

 

Furthermore, it looks like Matter and Non-Matter devices are both being released (KS220 vs KS225 are Still both in Production)

  @Riley_S 

Is the KS220 the same as the KS225 except for the Matter compatibility of the latter?  Thanks.

Hey  @NiceOne,

You are correct. The two are essentially the same except for their compatibility with protocols/services.

 

Smart Dimmer Switch: KS220 and KS225 are Equal, with the KS225 Supporting Matter

  @Riley_S 

 

It is no longer in development, as it was announced at last year's CES, and no mention of it this year.

 

It isn't uncommon for companies to show off prototypes  that remain exactly that.

 

Due to a change in direction or difficulty to produce the product.

 

i would not expect the KS240 to be released. It would have been before this year's CES.

  @DrTek,

I would recommend taking a look at my response on this thread. The device should still set to release this or early next month.

 

While CES devices will not always come to fruition, you will often see devices released a year or more after their announcement at CES.
