SUWON, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartThings, the leader in automation and the easy way to make homes smart, today announces integration with Kasa Smart by TP-Link, a leading global provider of smart home products. Through this integration, many of Kasa’s most popular smart home devices are now fully compatible with the SmartThings platform and certified under the Works With SmartThings program.
TP-Link leveraged SmartThings’ newly released developer tool SmartThings Schema to start its integration journey and on-board onto the platform. SmartThings Schema is the quickest integration method that does not require the SmartThings API; developed to help on-board developers, partners and devices quicker to create more diversity and choice within the SmartThings ecosystem. To deepen the partnership, TP-Link then worked closely with the Works With SmartThings (WWST) team to complete the process of certifying devices as WWST, which includes rigorous testing and callbacks.
SmartThings users can now easily integrate their TP-Link devices and set-up countless automations; for example, having a lock open or close can trigger a TP-Link bulb to turn on or off. The following models of Kasa’s smart home devices are now certified under the Works With SmartThings program:
- Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug
- Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug, Mini
