Wyze socket not functioning with switch controlling two lights

I bought two Wyze sockets to go with the two lamps in front of my house that are on the same switch. Had it all hooked up and went to flip the switch on and nada. Took it down and tried it on another indoor lamp - works fine. Tried it in another outdoor fixture, works fine. Just not where I need them to work.

Anyone else have this issue?

You sure the switch was on, was the camera powered and working, just the bulb didn’t come on?

Could be that the fixtures you wanted to use have a light sensor and only power the bulb during the night.

Some have complained about similar issues and found that the socket didn’t actually reach the bottom of the outside fixture to create a circuit and needed an extender to make them work.
