Yep, need the 3 way switch. I just installed one of these in place of a 3 way and it was a serious pain. About to install the other 2 of the 3 pack. But would love the 3 way version instead.

I like it a lot. You can use it in place of a 3 way switch, but you need to some research. There are YouTube videos that show you how to convert a 3 way to a single pole. I installed the other 2 (one at a 3 way and the other a regular switch) and really like the setup and functionality. I just bought 6 more Kasa smart switches and will get more dimmers in the future as well.

I have installed two 3-way switches on different light fixtures. Kasa generally recommends replacing both 3-way switches but they seem to work even with only one (the other one stays with the original dumb 3-way switch.

The first one I tried was in a part of my house with old wiring, probably from the 70's or 80's or even earlier. That one worked as a 3-way switch but the app could not tell whether the light was on or off so virtually all of the smart features were worthless. All the app did was change the light from whichever state it was in to the other state.

The 2nd one I installed was in a renovated section of my house with wiring up to modern code. In that one, even though only one of the two 3-way switches was a Kasa smart switch, all the functions worked perfectly.

So it looks like they can work with only one installed if the wires are the standard method. Otherwise you would likely need to replace both ends. I was too nervous to work with the ancient wiring so just left it alone and put back the original switches.

I have Kasa smart three-way switches, regular single pole switches, plugs, power strips, and all work great. Virtually instant response from either the app or from Amazon echo voice commands. The scheduling works perfectly. Installation was quick and simple and the app recognized new units quickly.

This was my 2nd foray into Smart home (the first was several years ago with Smartthings with the original sensors in which the batteries dies quickly, the hub was too weak and the app wasn't really up to par.

From what I see, although Kasa's line of Smarthome products is relatively limited, it is a great starting point and really does everything I need. My next product will be the cameras but I have a few Wyze that I already have so that won't be for a while.
