Kasa Integration in Hubitat Documentation

I did a search in the documentation for Kasa integration and came across this entry:
https://docs.hubitat.com/index.php?title=Kasa_Integration

It states that new users should use the built-in integration as of 2.3.3. As far as I can tell, 2.3.3 is not out yet? Is the product documentation just ahead of the software releases? If so, any idea when 2.3.3 is coming out? If imminent, I might wait, if not, I guess I should use the community app?

Imminent if nothing comes up in the latest hot fix released recently. Instant if you'd like to sign up for beta :wink:

Local Control I presume?

The Kasa integration that is coming in the next release is the same great integration that @djgutheinz has developed. The only difference is that users no longer need to copy/paste code or use Hubitat Package Manager to install the app and drivers.

They wouldn't have it any other way

So this worked great, found all my devices and they are working perfectly. One thing I'm wondering - will it keep up with IP changes or do I need to set all those devices to have static IPs on my router?

If your router is in the habit of changing IPs frequently, I recommend making IP reservations. I don't have static IPs or reserved IPs in my network, but my IPs rarely/never change.

Until they do

Still waiting for that day to come :slight_smile:

Jokes aside, if users don't turn off their routers for extended periods of time, the client IPs are unlikely to change.

I was mostly asking to see if the integration discovered them dynamically. If it's a one time discovery and dependent upon the IP I'm going to take a minute right now to pin them down. I agree that they don't typically change, but they will likely change eventually - maybe after a firmware upgrade, who knows, and it will be months down the road and I'll be left forgetting this whole conversation and spending a bunch of time troubleshooting my automations :smiley:
