These are great for any kind of light that you can put on a schedule. We use them for outdoor exterior lights. The wifi is sensitive enough to find our router and they seem to turn on and off the way they’re supposed to.
You have to install them using the Kasa phone app. That requires attaching your phone to the wifi network created by the light bulb. Weird, and a little slow, but it works. If your phone asks you to stop using wifi and rely on cellular for data, say NO otherwise it will stop talking to the Kasa bulb and you won’t be able to finish installation.

Update 2: After almost a month of back and forth with support I finally got ahold of an engineer. The Engineer was very skilled and systematically helped look and check a number of settings and ended up with the resolution of downloading a Beta firmware and loading it onto the first bulb. I completed the remaining updates and so far has been stable for a day. Lots of work to get to this point, I hope they roll out a general update soon. Update 1: Previously I had tried after reading a few reviews, I can confirm what others have found out that if you have a larger home with many Access points, or mine that is old and has heavy plaster walls so I have multiple AP’s These WILL NOT work. There is a bug in the bulbs that will not allow them to connect if you have the same SSID broadcasting on multiple AP’s. As a test I setup a single AP, with a new SSID and connected my phone and the bulb to that and it worked just fine, however that solution is not a great one. I don’t want to setup a separate SSID just for these bulbs on every AP as well as my main SSID. Original review: So I’m 0 for 8 on these lights now unless I use the work around. 2 got so far to upgrading the firmware when they would start, then drop off the network and change their name to the default TP-LINK_Smart Bulb_XXXX then become greyed out and unable to connect again. The other two got to the point there I could rename them then you would get the “something went wrong” and they could never rename them. All 4 actually got stuck at that point but turning two off and on and waiting for them to flash did the trick and they were able to get past that. But I’m an hour and 10 minutes in and so far these are pretty much junk compared to the MANY other TP link switches, dimming switches, plain, and 3 way, many of the plain switched outlets, and 8 or so of the power metering outlets, metering surge strips, the plain 3 outlet surge strips, a couple of the outdoor outlets as well as a couple of the color changing bulbs. Pretty much EVERYthing else from they is awesome working in great harmony with Alexa, and some basic IFTTT simple scripts. I’m about the click another bulb off and on with a second between each power cycle to reset it again, then I will have another 10 minutes to contemplate at it tries to connect to the network again. Hopefully this is a bad batch and has some faulty firmware. My other gripe is for TP-links support is if you send an email, you will get 1 and only 1 response per day, luckily the one previous faulty product I had was from Amazon and I could return it for full refund from them otherwise TP link was going to charge to return. 2 hours in, I’m subtracting a star as these don’t even function as light bulbs even once they have flaked out. They have an annoying blink maybe once per minute. I have documented my findings and troubleshooting steps and opened a ticket. I was SO positive about how well all my TP link gear has worked so far that I already tossed the boxes into recycling and I just went to fish them out of the can.
Customer Questions & Answers
Can these be programmed for a sunrise simulation? (e.g., come on at 7:00 at 25%, 50% at 7:10, 75% at 7:20 without turning off in between settings)
Answer: Yes, you can use the Sunrise & Sunset feature, or the Schedule feature, then pair either of them with the Fade Rate option to determine how long of a period of time you would like the bulb to fade on or off for.
Are these better than Sengled bluetooth bulbs? I got the Sengled free. they worked great for a few months and now being unresponsive constantly.
Answer: I’ve been using this brand for 2 yrs and the original bulbs still work fine as well as the new bulbs I bought a few months ago.
do they work with 220v?
Answer: No, these are designed for 120V standard.
