Title: Alexa command to tp-link Smart Plug HS100
Post by: ganeyvim on August 24, 2016, 12:37:13 pm
The tp-link smart plug used to work with Alexa, but has now stopped.
The kaza app control and setup still works fine . (ON/OFF, schedule, etc).
Named the smart-plug "Living Room".
I disabled and reinstalled/setup the Alexa Skill, which shows the Kaza connection as valid.
When I say "Alexa turn on living room", she responds with "OK", but nothing happens. This worked i n the past.
As mentioned above, the Kaza app on the phone works fine, and I can also see that plug, phone, and echo are all connected to the same router.
Any Ideas?

You used the term "Alexa Skill".  Are you using an actual user-written "skill" to control your TP-Link device, or are you using Alexa's built-in TP-Link integration?

Hopefully it was just a 'glitch'.  I use it to control an outdoor fountain in front of my house.  I usually turn it off when we go to bed.  Last night I gave the command and she responded with 'OK' as usual but it was still running this morning when I got up.  I just checked it now and it shuts on and off as usual.  Check yours again.
