Two Black and one Red Wire to a Switch with Two Black and one White?

Iím installing Kasa smart switches into my house which have two black wires and one white wire. The ground wires are connected properly. The wire coming out of the electrical box has two black wires and one red one. I hooked the two black wires one the switch to the two black wires in the box along with the red wire to the white wire. The switch is making the light turn on and off as if it keeps resetting. Anyone know how itís supposed to go?

I figured it out. There was a white wire that wasnít connected to anything in the box so I hooked him to that. And then hooked in a red and a black wire to one of the black wires on the switch and then the other black wire from the box to the other black wire on the switch.
