After removing the old light switch, IN ORDER TO FIT THE BULKIER HS220 I HAD TO DRASTICALLY TRIM THE 8 WIRES THAT WERE IN MY GANG BOX : five 12-gauge wires (2 white neutrals in a wire-nut, 2 black hots in a wire-nut along with a red 'line' wire that connected the hots to the light switch), two 14-guage wires (1 white neutral, 1 black 'load' wire), and 1 long ground wire that was connected to a bunch of short ground wires. Before trimming it seemed like there was absolutely no way it would fit, but I gave it a shot and it worked. I trimmed off a full 33' combined from all of those wires (the 12-gauge wires each 4.5' longer than was needed, while the 14-gauges were each 3' in excess, and the long ground wire was 5' in excess). I am glad I had a wire-stripping tool at home, otherwise this would have been much more difficult, with the wire stripper it was easy, but still time consuming.
I have no idea what that reviewer is referring to and their review is inaccurate. This dimmer will control 3 and more lights in the same fixture with no problem. I have one controlling 6 LED lights on one fixture and another controlling 2 pendant lights on the same circuit.

Better than other current dimmers.
I have had a ‘smart’ home for years. Obviously things have continued to change. I have tried quite a few brands of smart switches and have my share of complaints.
For this one I have no real complaints. Pro’s and cons are below.
– Pro: The dimming is very good. I have LED lights and some dimmers barely affect the light. Others just have a high-low affect. This really dims the light.
– Pro: The paddle is nice, works like any decora paddle switch. People are used to these. The DIM setting is remembered when turning on and off.
– Pro: The Kasa app and connectivity is good, and worked.
– Con: I wish there was 5ghz support.
– Pro: Google home integration works well.
– Pro: The flat switch cover is nice, but I had to remove it to put in a duplex box.
– Pro: I like the ‘ramp rate’ (time delay for on and off) Con: but wish there was a way to set the time.
The only question I have is durability, hopefully it will last years and years…09/13/2022Verified Purchase
Kasa outlet KP200 great upgrade! Pros/Cons
The smart outlets with hub from another company I was using went out of business bricking my current setup. So the search began for a new smart outlet company. After finding and using these I can see why they went out of business. These are way better so far.
1. Surprised to find outlet no longer has wire pigtails like their intall video shows. I prefer this any way because pigtails with extra wire nuts take way too much room in electrical box.
2. NO HUB required!
3. Outlet install super easy….I’ve changed many outlets before though.
4. Separate control of each plug.
5. Adding outlet to Kasa App took less than a minute.
6. They look great and have a nice finish to them…they don’t look cheap.
7. Tamper Resistant.
8. App was really quick to respond to user input and nice design.
9. One of my applications is for heat tape on plumbing I’ll turn on at random times depending on winter temps…anyway, the ‘timer’ option in the app is nice option because I don’t need to run the heat tape all that long and now I can turn it on and set timer to turn it off automatically in 20 minutes or something so if I forget and remember 3 hours later I know I was covered.
10. TP-Link company brand recognition (I may not have bought otherwise since Kasa didn’t mean anything to me)
11. NOT made in China.
1. Only comes in white? Luckily I’m putting these in garage and attic spaces so it didn’t matter much for my current application but I would love to use these inside my house as well but entire house is light almond.
2. Screws for wire terminals are short and don’t have a limiter on them like normal outlets do so if you unscrew them too far the screw falls out. No big deal for normal application but if you are installing in attic and don’t know this like I didn’t you’ll be searching thru attic insulation to find the screw. Which I found and now I know!
3. An option without a wall plate would be good. I use decora style wall plates and would want them to match…but these outlets don’t come in light almond any way so non starter for me for inside my house.
4. Scheduled events in App can only be 31 events PER PLUG. No big deal normally but I’m using one of these for a hot water tank recirculation pump that I want to run for 5 minutes every hour in the winter.
5. Other issue with scheduling is related to #4. You have to create a separate schedule event for ON and OFF operations which adds up. If scheduling could just have a start and end time option I could cut the amount of schedules I need to create in half. Again, probablly no big deal for normal applications.08/08/2022Verified Purchase
Found Delay Compared to Standard Kasa Light Switches
First of all, let me say how much I like the Kasa light switches over the Wemo brand. I had Wemo for a number of years, but lately, they have been very flaky when it came to automatic turning on and off, apparently there were issues with connectivity to their corporate servers. That has not been the case with the new Kasa switches. I’m almost in love with the Kasa switches, but not quite.
With the Dimmer switch, I am noticing a second or two delay from when the switch is turned on and when the light bulb actually turns on. This is not a function of the light bulb, as the same bulb turned on instantly when using regular (non-dimmer) switches from Kasa (HS103 and HS200). I have not found a solution for this issue. Due to this issue, I knocked off a star from my review.
I also found a slight issue with the installation compared to the HS200 Smart Switch. Unlike the HS200 Smart Switch, the HS220 Smart Dimmer Switch does require the need to identify the ‘source’ and ‘load’ sides of the switched line (both will be black inside the wall). The first time I installed one of these HS220 switches, I did not realize that, and the switch would not operate, when I reversed the connections, everything worked as expected. I did not have to worry about ‘source’ vs ‘load’ with the HS200, I am not sure why Kasa would not have the same circuitry in both to make it simpler to install the HS220.
Also, I am not a fan of the ‘status LED’ being off when the lights are on, and on when the lights are off. In the bedroom, I need total darkness, the ‘status LED’ is bright enough to keep me awake. I have subsequently turned off the ‘status LED’, so it is no longer illuminating at any time. However, this is problematic for ‘hidden’ lights, such as outdoor or closet lights. For these, I would love to see the ability to set the ‘status LED’ to on when the light is on, as it would be nice to see the ‘status LED’ indicate the actual status of those lights, without having to apply reverse logic (i.e., on is off, off is on). In this, Wemo got it right (LED on when light is on, LED off when light is off). Kasa got it partially right in having the ability to disable the LED.
Overall, these are very good switches, and I would highly recommend them over the Wemo brand at this point in time. I now have a mix of HS103 (Smart Plugs), HS200 (Smart Switches – Single Pole), and now HS220 (Smart Dimmer Switches – Single Pole). They are very reliable! The Kasa app works very well. I also like how the switches can be controlled using Google Home (I do not use Alexa or Siri), as my Android phone has Google Home installed on it. Simply put, ‘it just works’. That is the reason I bought these switches.06/15/2022Verified Purchase
