[Amazon Canada] TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch for 3-Way Lighting HS210 KIT

TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch for 3-Way Lighting. No Hub Required, Works with Alexa and Google Assistant (HS210 KIT).
Lowest price it's been since its release @ $89.99. Great for those of us with three way switches that we want to automate or make smart.

there are 2 switches come in the box
and you don't need installed both switches in one 3-way setup.
You can actually use 2 switches in 2 isolated 3-way setup.

On each Amazon product page, there's a "Share" section to the right....if you click on the email icon, you'll see the Permalink.

"very suspicious looking" - Because you didn't know any better.

No dimming? Quite expensive for 3 way w/o dimming, If you have a Wink hub, Lutron Caseta dimmer+remote is only $70 and it works without a neutral wire, 3 ways setups can be very ming boggling (power to light or to one of the 2 switches, YMMV)

Oh, so it's a 2 pack and works with a regular 3-way switch then?

Thanks OP,
I've been waiting for these to add to my smartthings hub.
But based on the number I'd need, as well as all the HS220's (dimmable 1way switch version),
I'm going to wait to invest.
I loaded up on the smart bulbs a while ago, and they'll keep me going for a while.
Damn home automation.

yes, 2 switches can be used in 2 separated 3-way setups, makes it $45 per switch

I am not sure if I understand you correctly. But this thing is not ST compatible as they connect directly to the wifi.

Standard price is only $99 at Staples, Best buy.
Judging from how much I got my HS200 for, I think price can still come down to around $60-$70 mark.
Best deal: 2 boxes of HP 92 white papers from staples for $7.00 (2004)

Upvote my post if you find it helpful. Thx

You are correct, but I have the switches associated with the security system and IFTTT which is through Alexa and Smartthings.

If we are able to have one of the two HS210 in the kit operate a separate 3way, that changes things.
What happens if the "slave" 3-way switch (i.e. dumb) is toggled? Doesn't it over-ride the HS210 in the circuit (i.e. removing power from the circuit)? I just know that the slave switch will inadvertently be used.

I have this for my stairway, it allows you to use regular switch as the slave so you don't have to change both switches in a 3-way, works out cheaper.

Anyone know if these can be used in a 4 way set up? I have 4 switches that control 1 set of lights.
