How to make my TP-LINK Kasa devices work with Amazon Echo
Supported models: Kasa smart plugs (HS100, HS110), Kasa smart switch (HS200), Kasa smart lightbulbs (LB100, LB110, LB120, LB130).
Before we start, we need to make sure that you have TP-LINK cloud account. If you don’t have one, please see How to create a Cloud Account for my TP-LINK Smart Plug in Kasa to allow Kasa to control it remotely?
Step 1: Log in to your account in Kasa
Log in to Kasa using your Kasa account. Make sure your account is verified and all your smart devices are saved to your account.
You can check that you’re logged in by tapping the hamburger menu in your Kasa App. You should see your account email if you’re logged in.
Step 2: Enable Remote Control for all devices
You need to enable Remote Control in Kasa.
Go to each device that you’d like to control with Alexa and tap the settings icon. Make sure Remote Control is enabled for that device.
Step 3: Set up device names
It’s better to use unique names such as “Bedroom Lamp” or "Aquarium". This will help Alexa identify your devices better.
An example that may not work very well is to name your devices "Lamp1", "Lamp2", etc. Using numbers or words that sound too similar is not ideal.
Step 4: Go to "Smart Home" section of your Alexa app
In the Alexa app, Use the hamburger menu icon to go into Smart Home page.
Step 5: Tap on “Get More Smart Home Skills” in your Smart Home page
Step 6: Search "Kasa" in the search bar to enable the Kasa skill
Step 7: Sign in to your Kasa account
Enter your Kasa account information (the one you use in the Kasa app) in the pop up window and tap “Authorize”.
Once your accounts have been successfully linked, you should see a success screen. You can go ahead and close the popup.
Step 8: Discover your devices in Alexa
Tap on “Discover devices” in the pop up window to find and control your Kasa devices.
If you don’t see a pop up window, you can also find “Discover devices” in your Alexa Smart Home page.
Step 9: All done!
Alexa will take a few seconds to discover your devices.
Once it's done, you should see all your remote control-enabled deviced in your Smart Home page.
Now you can start controlling your devices using Alexa!
