How to use the Grouping feature in Kasa app
A group is a collection of devices that you can tap a single action to control all devices belonging in that group. It is accessible in the home screen just like any other devices.
You can group together smart plugs, smart switches and smart bulbs.
If you grouped together a bunch of smart bulbs, you will see the color picker, and all of the other bulb-related features you would expect if controlling a single smart bulb. This will help reduce the number of unique screens needed to support the feature.
If you has a group of six smart bulbs and drag your finger around the color picker, all of the 'color' bulbs change color simultaneously and smoothly. Other bulbs that are non-color bulbs will remain unchanged.
Groups will exist in a new "GROUPS" category in the device list and they will appear like a basic device with a name, icon and on/off switch.
