WeMo Light Switch Wiring

I've installed my WeMo light switch, powered, configured via the app. The trouble I'm having is that neither the switch or app are triggering the light. Suggestions please...

Do you have a photo or drawing of your wiring pre and post WeMo installation? Is it a 3-way switch by any chance?

Almost certainly wired incorrectly - without Neutral?

Here is a link to the x10 switch I'm replacing and the WeMo that is wired and powered but not triggering light switch.

It's not a three way switch.

Your WeMo switched live does not connect to anything (capped off) so it will never work!

Re: WeMo Light Switch Wiring

I'd appreciate your insight about what you are seeing that I've missed?
- it's powered
- it's on wifi
- it can be controlled via the app
- it does not control the light.

Thanks very much!

That's all true but all WeMo does is to use a relay to interrupt the Live wire. The switched live (2nd black WeMo wire with the orange cap) in your picture does not go to your lamp.
