Customer Question
Installing TP link wireless switch...
Installing TP link wireless switch into a box with three switches. Only want one switch to work wirelessly. I don’t think its a three way switch as the porch light I’m using can only be turned on and off in one location. Installed the switch following the instructions and after install and power up, none of the three switches work.

Hi this is George. Do you have a two probe tester? Are all switches on the same circuit?
