Are these switches dimmable? If not does TP-Link make a dimmable switch?
HS220 is the dimmable version.

If I've already purchased some Monoprice Stitch smart home items, should I bother getting these and mixing brands? Operating more than one app seems like a pain. Are there any unifying apps available for multiple brands?
You could use SmartThings to program everything. Problem is going to be when you need to move or recover from a power outage. Keeping everything straight will be a project. I think you might be fine with two ecosystems, but anything above that is getting a bit complex. But that's sort of a personal strategy question. If you have the $, one ecosystem is better. If you want to save $, you're taking on a more complex project but it's definitely doable.

They are the same size/shape as a regular switch, just use what you already have

So I could use two regular single switch plates in addition to the one included?

Yes. Just buy a Leviton wall plate from home Depot. Extra wide (preferred) is good for rough drywall edge covers.

Do these have a feature that would allow me to turn it on and have it automatically turn off after a period of time? I'd like to put this on a bathroom exhaust fan and have it turn off after about 45 minutes automatically.
You can set a timer in the app to have it switch off after a preset period of time: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/947/

But I don't know if there's a way to make this the default, so it turns off automatically even when you turn it on manually.

They are the same size and shape as a regular Leviton Decora switch. You can replace old toggle switches with Decora or you can get Decora style plates that have combinations of switch holes.

I have a combination of these, the three way version, and the dimmable version throughout my entire house. A few things that may help some:

- If you're not comfortable with your home's wiring or are unfamiliar with the NEC, it may be best to let someone else install these. The instructions are for a very simplistic setup (one switch controlling one light ie no other circuits to or from the switch), but homes can have all sorts of more complicated wiring setups.

- These are bulky unlike more common switches and sometimes can be a pain getting back into the box. For most of my installs, it took longer to get them back into the box, than it did to make the actual connections. This was usually the case when I was connecting a 2 or 3 switch box

- These require a neutral (common) wire.

- After power failure, these will return to whatever state they were in before the failure.

- These can control the "on/off" function of a ceiling fan, but can not control speed.

- These will NOT control most gas fireplaces. If I remember correctly, the switch for the fireplace just opens and close the gas or something like that. I'm currently still researching ways to control my fireplace via Google Home

- If you have (or are planning to get) the three way version, the light indicator will be brighter for these than the three way version. If you care about that sort of thing, it's really noticeable when they're in the same box together.

- These will occasionally lose connection with the router, but they will reconnect on their own. This hasn't happened much lately so maybe there was a firmware update recently.

- You can use the app to set timers and scenes and things like that. I have mine set to turn the porch light on and off at dusk and dawn and turn on a light every now and then when I'm on vacation.

- These do not require a hub.

- They work with both Google Home and Amazon Echo.

- They fit in regular decora switch plates if you have a double or triple box setup. This only comes with a single box plate. I suggest you get the extra large size if you need to get a switch plate.

That's all I can think of right now, but I'm willing to answer any specific questions anyone has. Overall, they have been a great addition to my home. I'm much lazier now lol.

No. This ONLY has 3 wires while a 3 way needs 4 wires.

Bought these a year ago and they are working like champs, they have 6 preset timers and one on and off switch also they have led light indicators so make for a decent night light.
15 bucks each in a two pack.
NOT smart switches.

based on the one review it seems like this does need a common wire, can anyone confirm?

trying to make my 1950's dumb house smart is tougher than it looks when everything needs a C-wire
Lutron Caseta has a switch the works without a C wire. I just used Caseta throughout my new house instead of the standard type of WiFi switches like TP Link and WeMo. They're a lot more customizable and reliable, don't use a WiFi connection, and have great physical remote as well.

Tip: even if you think you're not going to use the remote, buy the version with the remote. It's only ~$3 more on Amazon than the one without. The remotes go for $15 on their own.
