    Hi, I would like to move a push on switch (NO) from the pcb of the smart plug to 1m from the unit , but when I just put an other switch parallel to the original one simply on two wires the wifi signal drops after pushing the button. I tried with an NPN transistor as you can see on the picture now it works, but I have a 5 sec delay on the wifi feedback (on my phone the switch delays 4-5 sec after pushing the hardware button on the socket). Why is this happening and how can I solve it, without the transistor the feedback is almost instantaneous on the wifi ( less than 1 sec) ?
