Ge Smart Switch 3, Wiring Diagram - The guide for the ge 12723/four clever dimmer transfer does not describe how its switches is probably used on this configuration, and no longer certain it is possible. (As an example, the “upload-on switch” only has two terminals: impartial and visitor, whereas i've 3 wires (other than floor) to hook up at the remote switch.).
Why is it referred to as a 3-way? I’ve been instructed that it’s because there are 3 approaches for the electricity to float, or that initially there were 3 points of touch. Nothing seems to make feel to me, and i'm able to depart the nomenclature for electricians and pupils. The common diy handyman/girl will need to know a unmarried pole transfer and a 3-manner.
You want to make sure your impartial maintains from the panel thru all three bins (transfer a, b and light). You’ll tie your neutrals in your switch grasp and slave into this. Line (normally black) in from panel connects to line in at the master switch. Load out to the second one transfer container will be the black cord, and traveller would be the red. In the 2d field, you’d take the black coming from the primary box, and join it at once to the black twine that is going to the light/load box. You have got now efficiently stressed out in a unmarried switch circuit and your light have to switch on/off with out difficulty from that unmarried switch. Now, connect the purple twine inside the second field to the visitor/signal screw at the slave transfer, and make sure your impartial is hooked up. You have got just finished a 3 manner circuit.
Supply: i grew up reworking houses with my father, who was the electrical inspector for the city we lived in in florida after he retired from the military. I stressed out near forty homes myself earlier than i was 20.
To the satisfactory of my understanding all of the to be had z wave and zigbee switches use a master/slave configuration. None have an auxiliary that also controls a load. The only difference is whether they speak with the grasp thru bodily vacationer wires or wirelessly.
