Model: HS200  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I'm no electrician, but this shouldn't be too hard. The switch I'm trying to replace is an outdoor porch light. It has 3 wires in the box, live load, neutral and ground. I attached ground/ground, neutral/neutral and the live load to both live loads coming from the switch. At first it worked, but the light wouldn't go off completely. I thought something might be loose and redid the wiring. When I powered back up the switch now toggles it's self. I will attach a short video as to what is going on. I did try another HS200 and got the same result right off. Help?

@Wiitigo It is hard to see in the video, is one of the neutral wires black with white paint on it?

@B.Will Actually I figured it out. What I thought was a neutral wire was actually a load line. I had to dig deep into the box to find the neutral bunch. It is now working as intended :D Thanks for the quick reply! Good to know people are willing to help others out!
