What’s the Smart Home feature in the Deco app?

The “Smart Home” feature provides a convenient gateway to smart living. Without the need for additional smart home apps, you can now directly add and manage smart devices. It has three parts:

Add Smart Device

There is no need to download and install individual apps for your smart devices like Kasa, Tapo, or Philips Hue, now, you can seamlessly add and setup smart devices directly within the Deco App.

For detailed setup instructions, please refer to how to configure TP-Link Kasa/Tapo Devices on the Deco APP.

Basic Control over the Smart Devices

Smart devices within the Deco App offer more than just a connected device display on the router’s client list. You can achieve basic control over the smart devices, such as turning on/off switches and setting working Schedules.

Automation & Shortcut

*This feature applies to TP-Link Kasa and Tapo devices only.

With the Shortcut function, you can control multiple devices in the Deco network with a simple tap in the Deco app. For example, turn on all the Kasa smart plugs in the living room or prioritize TVs when streaming.

With the Automation function, you can create smart interactions among devices within the Deco network. For example, set up an automation rule to turn off Kasa/Tapo smart lights automatically when your phone disconnects from the WiFi network (leaving home).

Please refer to Shortcut or Automation if you want to know more detailed setup instructions.

Please refer to Smart Home in the Deco APP to get more information on the possibilities offered by Smart Home features in the Deco App.
