Trying to create a smart action in the app: When the doorbell is pressed (or a person is detected) then switch on the porch light.

 

The only trigger action available for the doorbell is "Motion Detected". Using the iOS Kasa App. (version 3.3.552 Build 1590)

 

Seems that "doorbell pressed" and "Person Detected" would be really (more) useful that motion detected.

 

Is there a reason these triggers are missing?

 

Thanks.

  @Newtothis  I agree . These triggers are needed.

 

I separately posted on a similar topic that we should be able to trigger the chime on person detection too.

So all that's needed is for the Kasa app to support "Person Detected" and "Doorbell pressed" triggers for SmartActions and add Chime as an action.

 

Doesn't seem it would be that hard - especially since one trigger is already supported.

 

Come on Kasa!
