Hi there! I am brand new to Hubitat and home automation in general, and I am in need of some guidance. I have just installed the TP Link Kasa integration app from @djgutheinz (Thank you Dave!), and I think I was successful! All 5 of my Kasa devices can be controlled from my Hubitat Devices tab. Here's what I need help with though: I want to be able to press my in-wall Kasa switch, and have it turn on my 3 Kasa smart plugs with lamps.
I've been able to accomplish this through the Kasa app as desired, but am hoping to change over to hubitat and ultimately take this automation off of the cloud.
I've been able to ALMOST accomplish this through Basic Rules and Rule Machine, but not quite. By almost, I mean that everything works from the computer, but not from the wall. On the Hubitat, I can turn on and off the switch from the devices tab, and all 3 lamps turn on and off perfectly. BUT when I hit the physical switch on the wall, Hubitat doesn't seem to recognize that the switch is on (unless I hit refresh), so no lamps. Once I hit refresh from the devices tab for the in-wall switch, Hubitat recognizes the current status of the in-wall switch and the lamps immediately respond.
Please help me find a way to use my cheap wifi switch, through hubitat, to control my other cheap wifi plug switches. You're my only hope Hubitat Community!
