We are excited to let you know that after a successful trial with our beta users, the new Kasa API is now live and available for everyone to use in the app!

What do you need to do? 🤔

In order to use the new Kasa API you will need to disconnect your Kasa account from the equiwatt app before reconnecting your account via the new API.

To disconnect your Kasa account:

  2. Select ‘Kasa Plugs’ > Scroll down the page until you see ‘Remove Kasa Account’.

  3. Select ‘Remove Kasa Account’ > Confirm by selecting the red button.

  4. Your Kasa account will now have been removed

To reconnect your Kasa account:

  3. Use your Kasa credentials to authorize a connection with equiwatt.

What's changed?

The new Kasa API enables us to improve your experience whilst keeping your Kasa account and smart plugs more secure. But don’t worry it won’t affect your smart plug’s participation in equivents, we will still switch them off at the start of an equivent and switch them back on once the event has ended.

Not only does the new API enable you to switch on Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for your Kasa account, to add an extra layer of security to your smart devices, but it also enables you to see the command history for each plug too.

This means you can see exactly when your plugs have been switched on or off by us. The new API also means that any changes made by Kasa will be automatically supported by us without any disruptions to the connection between equiwatt and your plugs!

In the near future, we will also be adding the option to set up customisable alerts so that you can be notified if your devices are switched on or off after a certain period of time. This will help you avoid any of your smart plugs and the appliances connected to them from being left on or off when you don’t want them to be.

Let us know if you have any questions!
