What am I doing wrong? I finished installing a combo switch/receptacle that I want the switch to control an outside light and the receptacle to be independent. I used three wire, black to the brass, white to the silver and the red to a dark labeled common and I left, which I believe the instructions said to do, the tab intact.

The switch is controlling the receptacle.

If the black is the 120 volt supply and the red is the switch leg to the light, switch the red and black.
