Tech Tip: How to Set a Schedule for Multiple Kasa Devices at Once

Used Products:

As you know, you can do a lot to automate your home with your Kasa Smart products.  You can use your Kasa products to create schedules, timers and set up away modes, but this can sometimes be tedious, as you must set each one individually.  While there is the grouping feature that lets you turn on or off multiple products at once, this does not help in creating a unified schedule.  Wouldn’t it be great if there was a feature that accomplished this – to set a schedule for multiple products at once?  Well, the good news is there is a way to do just that.  It involves using two of the other features within Kasa, Scenes and Smart Actions.

 

What you will first need to do is create a Scene and then you can use the Smart Action “Schedule a Scene” to create a repeating schedule for that scene. But how do we do this?  Well let’s begin.

 

Open the Kasa App and tap on Scenes
