Its been on sale since last week i think cause i bought it at this price last thursday. Anyway, when i recieved it, i did not realized it was an open box until i installed it because some of the wiring stickers are already peeled off and missing. Did not bother to contact amazon.its working anyway Face With Tears Of Joy

I bought 6. Same price for a traditional dimmer of quality. No brainer for the smart control.

If I have a tandem light switch plate, one with this dimmer and one with the old switch, will the plate still fit?

The wemo dimmers i bought don't fit with under the same plate, so there is no way to get the plate back on unless it's a standalone switch plate already.

Was able to fit the Kasa switch (without dimmer) into a double plate no problem. Just get's tight in the receptacle box if you're running multiple dimmers/smart switches side-by-side.

I have no problem using this Kasa smart dimmer for 2 ,3 or even 4 switches. If you really want some of your traditional switches to stay "traditional", you will have to replace them with the same switch design, since it can be difficult to find wall plates with different holes for the switch for more than one gangs.

I had to hack it to make mine fit.

I basically did what this guy did here:
Just clipped off the ridges from back of faceplate where the screws go in.

Still not perfect, but good enough until the wife lets me outfit the house with all smart switches.

Great deal, these are fantastic. If you have an older house it can be annoying to cram everything in since the unit + wires is bulkier but other than that it's fine. I've had no issues with connectivity and the units can have their annoyingly bright LED disabled in the app. I had some HS200s before that didn't have this option but the HS220 does which is odd. I don't know if that's been resolved since I got rid of them. Installation took about 5 minutes per switch, very easy to DIY (turn off the breaker and test with multimeter to be safe).

Anyways very happy with these and thanks for sharing the deal OP.

Can anyone confirm if these have auto-off functions by when it was turned on? I know it has the set time (say 2am turn off if it is on) but can it turn off the light after X minutes automatically if it was turned on without setting a specific timer etc?

My kids man! Always leaving the lights on. For ex. Turn on toy room light at 7:14 pm, automatically turns off after 2 hours.

Probably not the switch, but BooBoo can. "Hey BooBoo, turn off toy room light in 2 hours!".

Can any light switch be changed to smart switch? I have one switch on top of the basement stairs and another one on the bottom of the stairs and both control the same lights. Can I change the one downstairs to smart switch? The electrician told me that due to the way the house is wired, he can only install it on the top of the stairs?
