TP-Link tpPLC app lets you conveniently view and manage your TP-Link powerline devices via your smart device.
Simply connect your smart device to the Wi-Fi network of a compatible TP-Link powerline extender and start managing with ease. It will list all the compatible powerline adapters and powerline extenders in your current network, and allow you to manage your powerline devices individually as well as the whole powerline network with a few taps.
• Display information of all compatible powerline devices in the current network.
• Manage a powerline device such as changing its device name, turning on or off its LEDs, viewing its data rate, resetting to factory defaults, and removing it from the current network. For a powerline extender, you can also change and schedule its Wi-Fi settings, and redirect to the web management interface.
• Manage the whole powerline network such as adding a new powerline device, setting a new powerline network name, and turning on or off the LEDs on all the powerline devices in the network.
To use this app, you need to be connected to the Wi-Fi network of a powerline extender below (listed hardware versions and above):

Ratings and Reviews
Great devices, but value of app unclear
The TP-link powerline extender devices seem very good, but it’s not yet clear how this app helps.
Initially I couldn’t get this app to work with my TP-link devices at all. The devices themselves, including the wi-fi powerline extender, all seem to work very well, but this app couldn’t see them. It just said “No device found. Please connect to the wi-fi network of a compatible powerline extender...” ...but I’d already done that...
Update: tried switching off my wi-fi extender and switching on again. Now the app shows it and the powerline network devices. However, I’ve not yet been able to find anything the app itself can do particularly useful.
So now after about two weeks, these devices appear to become saturated after a few days and internet grinds to a halt. I have the SSID cloned, so same name throughout the house. So I find myself switching all off and on every morning. The data rate graphic usually shows second adapter around 11Mbps
Now after a couple of weeks I find myself having to switch the system on and off once a day otherwise it just grinds to a halt !
WiFi Does now extend into the garden which it did not previously, so some success
Setup was ok, cloned network.
Variable data rate depending, according to graphic, on where the extenders are positioned, but that might be due to separate electrical circuits. Can quite remember which are on the new circuit. Changed names through mobile app, and expended this to be same for iPad app, but clearly not broadcast to other devices. For now working. Have to change router next week and rip it all apart so will see if goes back ok.
Week on and it quite often will not find devices, just says none available, clearly they are and I’m on the same network. Rather frustrating.
developer, check you error messages “Do not have a hyfi devices”. In this situation when I select LED, this is what reports!
Needs an update
You cannot proceed to use this app in iOS 14.2 as the app doesn’t appear in settings leaving it impossible to allow network access so effectively doesn’t work.
Also, you don’t really need an app to tell you that the TP link device isn’t functioning as intended. All you need to do for that, is buy one and plug it in. It won’t be long until it is disappointing you.
