You can get python and npm code online. The is one reason I will continue buy TP-link: I can play with it without using some silly app. I have not taken direct control of the bulbs, but look up rayenmessaoudi on github for some code.
No - the KL125 sold here is designed for USA voltage (120V).
No, this bulb is for use with USA voltage (120V, 60Hz).

Kasa/TP-link products are nice because nerds can 'hack' them
Not ‘hack’ as in ‘break in’ but as in write custom software to control them.
The protocol is simple, and supported by various python libraries. So you can write your own home control systems if so inclined.
Plus they are certainly made to better safety standards than mystery Chinese IoT devices. Beware of no-name power electronics: they can burn down your house.
update: the bulb does have one annoying quality. If you program it with Kasa app for transitions, the transitions happen only if the bulb is on at the time of the transition. For example, if you tell it to dim at 9pm, and it is off at 9pm but manually turned on at 9:10, then it isn’t smart enough to realize it should be dim. There’s no internal control routine that asks ‘given the programmed transitions, what should my state be now?’
So to get transition control combined with external light switching, you need to impose some kind of external monitoring of the bulb. Imagine if these bulbs actually allowed you to run a custom python scripts, they certainly have the computational power to do so, as they run Linux.08/26/2022Verified Purchase
Kasa is great.
Love these bulbs. Easy to set up.08/21/2022Verified Purchase
Works fine, but missing key features
The bulbs work great through the Tp-link Kasa app. But when you use a Google Home device for voice control its very hard to get them to change to a color, and it’s impossible to choose a preset that way. Overall they’re fine, but without those options I’ll just be sticking with regular white bulbs07/31/2022Verified Purchase
Good entry level smart bulb
I have over a dozen of these Kasa smart bulbs in my house, and I’ve used them for over a year now. Overall, these are a solid and affordable entry-level smart bulb.
Installation is a piece of cake. Simply unscrew the old (standard) bulb, and screw the Kasa bulb in its place. Then follow the instructions in the app to configure the bulb with your wi-fi.
To be clear about how these work: DO NOT flip the wall switch on and off. Turning the switch off will kill power to the bulb. The wi-fi chip inside the bulb always needs a small amount of power in order to receive the command to turn the light on. When you want to turn the light on from your phone app, or Alexa device, these devices will send a command to the bulb over wi-fi. If the bulb has no power, it cannot receive this command. So LEAVE THE WALL SWITCH ON ALWAYS, and simply use your app or Alexa to control the lights.
Of course, you COULD continue to use the wall switch as normal, and the lights will go on and off properly. This is actually quite convenient when guests are unfamiliar with how the bulbs work. However, if you plan to use the wall switch routinely, you lose any smart functionality, and there’s no point to buying these bubs.
Unfortunately, the bulbs seem to have a flaky wi-fi connection, and the app occasionally loses the ability to communicate with the bulb. Every day or two, I have to flip the wall switch off and then back on to ‘reboot’ the bulb’s wi-fi chip. Then you’re good for another couple days.
In terms of brightness, these are advertised at 800 lumens. I have 5 of them in my dining room chandelier, and it certainly provides more than enough light for eating, and for craft projects on the table. In the living room, the ceiling fan has 4 of these bulbs, and it does seem a little dim at times when reading. I wish the bulbs went up to 1,000 lumens or more.
Of the 12+ of these bulbs I own, one went bad within a few months and I had to replace it. The rest continue to work.
Overall I give these a B+.06/16/2022Verified Purchase

Kasa is the one to get!
We have many Kasa plugs and bulbs around the house and they’ve all worked great for some time. They are controlled with schedules, to come on and go off at set times, and via Alexa, ‘Alexa. Turn on Living Room!’. ‘Alexa. Turn off Green Table Lamp!’
I needed another 2 light bulbs for some additional table lamps and saw this bulb. It has colors, which I don’t intend to use, but it does have some additional functionality which my other bulbs don’t have – fade in and out duration and white balance adjustment (warm, daylight and any in between), and for $10, that’s a great deal.
Using the KASA app, set up is straightforward and easy. There was a firmware update after initial set up, which installed quickly. The basic scheduling was easy, like our other KASA units. However, I found it took some playing around to be able to set brightness for different times of the evening. I usually start off bright and dim the lights progressively at specific times through the evening. There are presets for white, green, red and blue and you can edit the percentage, color and warmth. You can save that one preset, but you can’t save additional presets and add to the list.
When you schedule a bulb to come on you can set its brightness with a preset, but that brightness is whatever percentage you set previously when you edited that one preset. I found, through trial and error, that you can set the preset at say 10% for white, set up a schedule using that 10%. Then, you, go back into presets, adjust the white to say, 50%, and then go set up another schedule using that 50% preset. Do this for however many schedules and brightnesses you want. Those settings get saved for that specific schedule.
It really would be much easier to be able to just save a new preset to choose from.
The only issue I have is when we get a power outage, the bulbs switch on when the power restores. Great to know if an outage has occurred, but I then have to turn them all off!
Now I’ve got the light set up as I want them, I just sit back and enjoy!
I certainly recommend KASA for plugs and lights… good value, reliable and durable05/06/2022Verified Purchase
