Tapo, a TP-Link brand, has launched three Matter-certified products, including the Tapo Mini Smart Wi-Fi Plug (1-, 2-, and 3-pack), Tapo Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch, and Tapo Smart Wi-Fi Dimmer Light Switch. All three devices offer compatibility with certified smart home platforms, smooth LAN control, and multi-admin capability.
The Tapo Matter light switches allow you to control lights from anywhere with the Tapo App and a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection. With advanced scheduling and timer features, these switches can automatically turn lights on and off based on preferences, even when they are away from home.
The Away Mode adds an extra layer of security by simulating an at-home presence, deterring potential intruders. Voice control support can also be used to manage connected lights through popular voice assistants like Apple Home, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Samsung SmartThings.
With the Tapo Smart Wi-Fi Dimmer Light Switch, easily adjust the light’s dimming range from one to 100 per cent,either by sliding a finger on the switch, using the Tapo app, or via voice commands. Both Tapo Matter light switches require a neutral wire and feature a guided installation process compatible with standard-sized wall plates.
In addition to the Tapo Matter light switches, TP-Link expanded its Matter-certified lineup with the Tapo Mini Smart Wi-Fi Plug. It offers a frustration-free setup experience with detailed in-app instructions and Bluetooth-enabled onboarding.
