    Lightbulb Kasa/HS200 Feature Request - Turn off X Minutes after Turned On

    Model : HS200

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Feature Request

    "Turn off X minutes after the light is turned on"


    I have a few hallways where people pass through, and the lights are ALWAYS left on. This, combined with my OCD, is slowly eating away at my soul. I'd like to configure Kasa to "Turn the device off 5 minutes after it is turned on".


    I've already set up a schedule in Kasa to turn the lights off on the "5s", but because of the timing I've already had the lights go out on people halfway through the hall.

    me too!

    I second this request. I have a gas fireplace which my teenagers sometimes leave on too long. I haven't bought a TP-Link switch for it yet, but when I do I would like to always shut it off after a set time and force them to turn it on again if they still need it.Thanks!

    I third this! It's a critical feature that other competitors offer and can be added via firmware and software updates - in fact I just bought 12 tp-link HS200 switches for this very purpose only to find out it's not possible. I also have Wemo's equivalent light switches installed in my home and they have this invaluable feature!

    With so many devices including wemos you might want to look at AutomationManager (its an android app but it can work well even if you're an iphone user). It integrates TP Link and wemo in one app and adds a host of automation including the auto off feature.

    Nice program! I'll buy it and give it a whirl now. Thanks for offering it as a solution and letting me know about it!
