Before we start, we need to make sure that you have TP-Link Cloud Account. If you don’t have one, please Create a Cloud Account for your TP-Link devices in the Kasa app to enable remote control of your devices.

Step 1: Sign-in to the Kasa app

Sign 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 menu button in the upper left corner of the Kasa App. You should see your account email address if you’re logged in.

Log in to Kasa

Step 2: Enable Remote Control for your devices

You need to enable Remote Control in Kasa for Alexa to discover your devices.

Go to each device that you’d like to control with Alexa and tap the settings icon and make sure Remote Control is enabled.

Step 3: Set good device names

It’s better to use unique names such as “Bedroom Lamp” or "Aquarium." WIthout unique names, you will have a difficult time controlling specific devices using your voice.

Try to avoid using similar sounding names or appending numbers to your device names. Device names like "Lamp1," "Lamp2," etc. may prove challenging to control.

In the Alexa app, tap the menu button and then tap Smart Home.
