l I eventually get this working. Following a suggestion from a member in a thread on WeMo's support forums, I wired as follows:

1st black from the switch to wall black wire
2nd black from the switch (on the WeMo there is a picture of a lightning bolt above the 2nd wire, not sure about on the TP-Link) to wall white wire
White and green wires from the switch to wall ground wire(s) (green or bare copper www.myloweslifeloginportal.com


I do not know the repercussions of installing the switch like this, as I have zero electrical knowledge. My husband tried for an evening and couldn't get it working without running a new neutral wire, I did a little research, tried the above method, and had it working in 5 minutes. So far, so good.

@mylowes 

Using the ground as a neutral can hurt/kill someone if they remove the ground at the breaker pannel.
