Hi!

 

I'm having trouble connecting this light switch. I connected the white wire to the bunch in the box and capped the green wire (ground) since the other ground wires were connected to the back of the box with some switches.

 

when I took off my old light switch there were three black wires, Two connected to the screws on the side and one connected through the back. I'm not quite sure how to deal with all these three wires, any help would be greatly appreciated!

@Khadija1 The two brass colored screws are the travellers, the black screw is the live/line

@B.Will 

One black wire came from the hole on the back side and the other two came from the screws, I'm pretty sure both screws are the same colour or one of them is more gold than the other...

The wire in the hole was connected to the wire on the screw it was beside. Those two are line, wire them together with to the black from the kasa switch. The other is load out and should be wired to the other black on the kasa.
