My house has older wiring and a lot of stuff is rigged in a weird way. When I installed the Kasa switch, I was careful to only connect black to black and white/neutral to neutral and ground to ground (green). But i will confess to playing “wiring roulette” when I noticed that the lights came on, but would not turn off.
The old switch that was in there only has a black connection and works fine. However, it appears to use the live load connection from two different conduits in the wall.
I have no idea how to connect the Kasa so that it will use these wires and “switch”. It connects to the WiFi just fine, and as I said the lights are on but just won’t turn off .
Any help appreciated
I tried the solution provided and it didn’t turn on the light at all. The old switch seems so simple, using only the black, but I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. The Kasa SmartSwitch was getting power and connected to my wifi, just didn’t control the light, on or off. I put back the old switch the way it was, and it works just fine
