When it comes to home automation, the technology has existed for quite some time now. However, the shift is how we interact with the technology itself. It’s an undeniable fact that smartphones have become a part of our lives. They are the devices that keep us connected to the outside world. When we are inside, our phones are replacing the numerous remotes that we have for our appliances.

The best example of this is TP-Link’s Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch, which essentially allows you to control your interior lighting via your tablet or smartphone. To install the Smart Light Switch itself is very simple and to connect it to the free Kasa app takes only a few short steps. From the app, you can schedule times when you want your lights to turn on and off, as well as set an “away” mode that turns your lights on at random intervals to give off the appearance someone is home, when in actuality, there isn’t. Moreover, no matter where you are in the world or if you just left your house and you aren’t sure if the lights are off, the Kasa app allows for remote access. If you have Amazon Alexa in your home, it’s capable of interacting with the TP-Link Smart Switch too.

We set up the Smart Switch in our new office and we appreciated its minimalistic design. The schedule feature came in handy for us as we didn’t have to worry anymore about leaving the lights on overnight!
