If you have finished the configuration on the Tapo/Kasa app, but you are unable to control the smart device through the app, please refer to the following steps to troubleshoot.

Case 1. Cannot use the Tapo/Kasa app to control my smart devices in the local network

Step 1. Check the LED status on the smart device as per User Guide. If the LED status shows the device is not working properly, please reset the device and re-configure it.

Step 2. If the smart device was working fine before, confirm if there are any changes in the router or the network environment.

Step 3. Go to the “Device Settings” page on the Tapo/ Kasa app to check the signal strength of the Tapo/ Kasa device.

If the signal strength is ranging from -70dBm to -40dBm, it means the smart device has a good signal from the router.

If the signal strength is less than -70dBm, it means the signal strength from the router is too weak. In this case, please move the smart device closer to your router for a try.

Step 4. To upgrade the smart device to the latest firmware, you may refer to the instructions:
