It looks like with version 2021.10.0, the TP-Link integration has been updated to use
I’m starting to have an issue as of this version where the state changes of a given switch can take up to 30 seconds to update in HA and issue a
state_changed event (I’m subscribed to
state_changed in the Events tab of Developer Tools). Is there a way to change the polling interval? Or has
python-kasa allowed HA to subscribe to event changes? The previous version of the integration seemed to poll every second. While inefficient, it worked for my use case.
Also, if I understand correctly, the static IP configuration of TP-Link devices is now deprecated? Is there a technical reason for this? I have devices that span subnets, and broadcast packets (for various and sundry reasons) are not bridged across the subnets on my network. The Chromecast integration also seemed to make this decision as well and roll it back to continue to allow static IP configuration for devices.
EDIT: forgot to mention (in case someone finds this later), but it also seems like my dimmers have changed from “switch” entities to “light” entities, which required changes in my automation to match. This is maybe a side-effect of the deprecation of the configuration, which had the IPs for my TP-Link devices under “switch.”
