Attempting WEMO Switch Install and Light Flickering

I'm attempting to install my first WEMO Switch. It's a non-dimmer, just normal switch. I have an older 1950s house with knob and tube wiring and was afraid I wouldn't have a neutral wire. However, I did find a white-capped wire, in addition to the two black wires.

 

So I hooked it all up, turned on the power and the ceiling light the switch is supposed to control is now continually softly flickering. I switched the two black wires and tried again and the light is still flickering really weakly like it's not drawing enough power. The switch itself works fine and I can see and add the device on the Wemo App. 

 

Any suggestions? I've attached a pic in case the issue is my wiring.IMG_0959.jpgIMG_0958.jpg

Hi, blacklinx. If you're not familiar with electrical work, we recommend that you seek assistance from a professional electrician for safety purposes. Also, here's the installation instructions.
