There is no specific order. You can load the drivers for all your different TP-Link devices or one at a time. You can then go to tea or coffee and comback later to create the devices in Hubitat using the Virtual Device.
Not knowing your experience level.....
Are you doing a manual installation? If so, after saving the driver, create a virtual device for each of your TP-Link device. Creating includes entering:
- Device Name (i.e., TP-Link Color Bulb)
- Device Label (i.e., Couch Right)
- Let Hubitat create the Device Network ID
- Pick the driver type from the pull-down menu. These are the driver internal name (displayed on the Drivers Code Page).
- Save the device
The Device's page will then come up. You need to enter the local Wifi Device IP for your device and then save preferences. Device IP example: 192.168.0.122.
Make sure you set static IP address for the device in your local router.
