We have an existing switch that controls the wrong outlet in a bedroom.

 

So, after learning about WiFi switches and outlets we purchased a WiFi switch and a WiFi outlet thinking that we could control the WiFi outlet (installed in the right place) with the new WiFi switch.  I can turn the light plugged into the WiFi outlet using the App but not with the WiFi switch.  I tried creating a group in the App and that still does not allow the WiFi switch to control the WiFi outlet.  What am I missing?

Nick, Our smart home products do not control each other.  If you had an exisitng wall switch that controled a wall outlet that has to do with wiring and there is nothing that swapping out outlets or switches will fix.  

 

Switches can only control what they are wired to.  outlets and plugs can only control what is connected to them.
