Hello all,

 

I'm having some issues wiring my HS200 into a wall receptacle where there's 2 black lines and a single white line connected onto a single pole switch.

 

There also appears to be a white/black line coupled together in the back. 

 

I've tried connecting the two black lines from the old switch onto the live/load wires on the HS200, and the white wire onto the neutral line. But while the switch powers on, it fails to turn the associated lights on or off. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

A neutral is never connected to a dumb switch.

If you have two light fixtures connected to the switch then the two blacks are the common/load, and the white is power/line.

Else the two blacks are power/line, and the white is common/load.

If you lucky the white and black under the wirenut is the neutral.
