Hi - I am replacing my existing 3 way switch with HS210 and came across this issue. My old switch has 3 black wires on one side and one red, copper wire on the other side. As per the instructions from TPLink, my switch has one extra black wire. I have attached the pic for your reference. Can anyone guide me how to replace this old switch with this setup. Out of 3 black wires, two are tapped inside the switch body and one is screwed

@TaraV 

treat the two black wires that are on the black screw as one(the common), the other black and the red are travelers.

@B.Will Quick clarification. Do i need to join those two black wires and combine them as one and then add it to my smart switch

You can put both wires to the common screw, or you can add a short jumper and wirenut them together, then connect the jumper to the common screw.
