It's happening to hundreds, if not thousands.

It's probably not you, I think something gets broken upstream every so often.

Was up until 3AM thinking the problem was on my end! I kept trying to reset the 3 smart plugs I have! I didn't receive an email until the issue was resolved from TP!

Any update on this issue. I got a few TP-Link wall plugs (installed) and light switches (not installed). My amazon echo experience is random. It works sometimes and doesn't work the other time. It is not too reliable. I am thinking if i should return all my light switches. Any workaround or firmware update will fix the issue? Thanks so much :)

Everytime i see this happens, i went to kasa app and go to the device setting of the plug. I tried disable and re-enable it, it returns with the following message:
Remote Control Disabled Remote control is disabled because the device belongs to a different account.
How can this belong to a different account?

I have 2 plug ins and every couple days they drop the connection and when I start the set up again I notice that they are finding the Wifi of a neighbor that is quiet a distance away and the router is just in the other room. My husband was totally frustrated last night and told me that we just may have to quit using these. I'm the one who has to fix them and if I happen to not be home they will be useless to him. At this point I probably can't return the plugs for a refund.

Are you sure it's not a problem with your router? Just for yucks, try a different channel.

I have been talking to the support. They suggested me to upgrade the firmware which i did. But that doesn't solve the issues. In my case, my smart plugs were always connected to the wifi network cuz i checked from my router page and ping test. I know the problem is for some reason the device would automatically disabled the remote control. Everytime i get the TP-Link isn't responding, i went in the kasa setting page for the device, it always show disable and no reply from server
