TP-Link Kasa h200 Switch Status Not Updating in ST

SO I have been using smartthings and these switches for years without issue. Recently within the last 2 weeks, I have noticed that the device status is not refreshing in smartthings. If I turn on/off a switch manually or from the kasa app, ST no longer sees this. In order for me to force a refresh, I have to go into ST settings, visit the tp-link integration screen and click done. Then everything refreshes.

I am still able to control the devices within the ST app, but automation fail now since ST is not getting updated device status.

I have rebooted my ST hub (v2), checked all firmware on all devices, latest app versions, forced stop apps, cleared cache etc. The only thing I have not done is kill the link between ST and TP link. I have not done that because it will kill all the automation, so trying to see if there is anything else I can do before I have to start from scratch with those devices.

Try switching them over to Edge Drivers and then abandon the official cloud integration.

If this is similar to the Meross integration that experienced the same symptoms you described… the only way to resolve it is to remove the integration and add the integration back.

I installed the drivers. I assume I have to now unlink the tp-link integration and then run a scan nearby?

No, you can run scan nearby 1st and then delete the integration when you have completed converting everything over.

This seems to have worked really well. I can see the switches now use the new driver and update almost instantly in the ST app when activated elsewhere. Thank you so much for the assistance.
