    Angry Kasa for PC

    Is there a PC app or a browser web page version of Kasa to control the smart plugs? I have an iPad but if it breaks I will have no device for controlling the plugs.

    I can only find Kasa for Mobile. That won't load on my pc.

    You would think tp-link would have either a pc or web based app by now. I would if I just did a big promo on amazon...

    I agree on the need for the setup app to run on other devices. I had only a Windows Phone and Android emulator and devices running Fire OS, Windows, Ubuntu, macOS. I eventually gave up and bought an Android phone.

    Proof of concept browser UI

    I've created a workable solution for browser based control here: https://codepen.io/arallsopp/pen/pdZQWG

    All of the source is visible, and you can pick it apart and see exactly how its being done. The 'About' page tells you what steps I've performed.

    Codepen is HTTPS, but if you're worried about putting your credentials into a site you don't know, you can just pull the source from my github account (https://github.com/arallsopp/tp-link...ch-web-client-) and put it on any web connected server of your choice.

    The source is tiny. I run mine on an ESP8266 chip

    If you want to try it out, I've also hosted it here. http://lotekandugly.com/tplink/index.html

    The code is identical to the git repo (as of today's date). The credentials are kept in a cookie on your machine, and are not retained by the server. Let me know how you get on

    While you point it out in the UI I think it should be pointed out here as well. You can not do an initial registration of the TP-Link with web-ui, you need to use kasa for that.

    Still, its something I would use if I can get access to an device to run kasa and set up all my switches. Nice work Andy

    Yep. Sorry about that. I can't find a way around it yet. On the other hand, you only need to entice someone with an IOS / Android device into range of your wifi for 10 mins, and you're set free ever after! It works for me, as I have an iOS device. My use case is that my other half can't control the things from her phone without a web UI. Initial registration was already done before we'd realised it was going to be a problem

    Hope its still able to help.

    I just registered on this forum to say THANK YOU for this. I had just added another TP-Link switch to my house and was Googling for a way to control them from my laptop. Found this thread, read the whole thing, then landed on your post from two days ago, where you're provided an excellent solution.

    It's working perfectly for me! The timing and convenience of this has made my day. Thank you so much!

    BlueStacks is good, but emulation can be a bit resource-heavy for something as simple as power on/off control of a lamp. Sometimes it's the only choice though! At least for Alexa, there's not as much need for a PC app, because there's also a browser web page that works great: http://alexa.amazon.com

    Still looking for news on the browser based version of the Kasa app. Any word?

    Works very nicely arallsopp, used the source from github on local windows 7 machine and opened with chrome browser. Thank you for this. One thing to point out, it gets all tp-link registered devices including cameras. I've test the on/off with a camera and it has no affect (as expected).
