Use the brightness channel on the HS220 with a Switch item can be used to switch the device on and off. It will not change the brightness value.

The default refresh for switch devices is set to 1 second. So it polls the switch for status changes. If you don't use the switch manually often, you can set it to a higher refresh. The refresh is only relevant to detect manual using the switch. Switching via openHAB activates the switch directly.

It is not possible to set the switch state on the Range Extender. This is because it is not known what command to send to the device to make this possible.

Prerequisites

Before using Smart Plugs with openHAB the devices must be connected to the Wi-Fi network. This can be done using the TP-Link provided mobile app Kasa.

Discovery

Devices can be auto discovered in the same local network as the openHAB application. It is possible to connect to devices on a different network, but these must be added manually by ipAddress. It is not possible to connect to devices on a different network using deviceId as configuration.

Thing Configuration

The thingId is the product type in lower case. For example HS100 has thingId hs100.

The thing can be configured by ipAddress or by deviceId. If the one of them is used the other is automatically set by the binding. When manually configured it is preferred to set the deviceId because if the ip address of the device would change this will be automatically updated. The deviceId is the unique identifier each TP-Link device has. The deviceId can be seen when using discovery in openHAB. Discovery will set the deviceId automatically.

Using a configuration with deviceId depends on the discovery service of the binding. The binding supports background discovery and this will update the ip address in case it changes within a minute. With background discovery disabled the ip address, which is needed to communicate with the device, needs to be set by starting a manual discovery. It will not update the ip address if background discovery is disabled and the ip address of the device changes. Manually starting a discovery can also be used to set the ip address directly instead of waiting for the 1 minute background discovery refresh period.

The thing has the following configuration parameters:

Parameter Description
deviceId The TP-Link id of the device.
ipAddress IP Address of the device.
refresh Refresh interval in seconds. Optional. The default is 30 seconds, and 1 second for switches.
transitionPeriod Duration of state changes in milliseconds, only for light bulbs, default 0.

Either deviceId or ipAddress must be set.

Channels

All devices support some of the following channels:

Channel Type ID Item Type Description Thing types supporting this channel

rssi Number:Power Wi-Fi signal strength indicator in dBm. All

The outlet devices (HS107, HS300, KP200, KP400) have group channels. This means the channel is prefixed with the group id. The following group ids are available:

Group ID Description
groupSwitch Group id for all general channels. e.g. groupSwitch#switch
outlet<number> The outlet to control. <number> is the number of the outlet (starts with 1). e.g. outlet1#switch

Channel Refresh

When the thing receives a RefreshType command the channel state is updated from an internal cache. This cache is updated per refresh interval as configured in the thing. However for some use cases it is preferable to set the refresh interval higher than the default. For example for switches the 1 second refresh interval may cause a burden to the network traffic. Therefore if the refresh interval for switches is set to a value higher than 5 seconds, and for the other devices higher than 1 minute. Than the a RefreshType command will fetch the device state and update the internal cache.
