Did you really just make a 6 minute video on you connecting three wires?!?!
You seriously need to change your title to this video because all it is doing is confusing people… instead your title needs to say something like, *Installation of light switche that work that don't require neutral wire".
I have a smart switch that needs a neutral wire. How do I write that? Tell me again how this video answers the very thing you're advertising. It doesn't, so change the title to Buy Another Light Switch That Doesn't Require a Neutral Wire, Like This One.
Do I need the Lutron bridge, to use this dimmer with Alexa (echo plus w/hub)?
One thing I never see in these videos or the manufacturer’s instructions is that you need a bigger box due to the extra depth and width of the smart switch. IT IS CODE. A 20 cubic inch box cannot be stuffed with 19 cubic inches of switch and wire. There are some good calculators on line such as BGH.com that has a chart for easy reference that you can use to determine if your box is to small, as well as, the cubic inch designations of everything else in the box such as wire nuts, clamps and wire it self. This is a link to the articlehttps://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjQhNHX0_frAhUFHM0KHV9LDEgQFjAKegQIAhAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bhg.com%2Fhome-improvement%2Felectrical%2Fhow-many-wires-in-an-electrical-box%2F&usg=AOvVaw2CBl2al_x1RIaOzxo4sen8
This could benefit from a title update. "Smart switches that do not require a neutral wire" would be a better option.
that's not a work around, that's just paying 10 times the price for one that works.
That's a dimmer not a switch.
the back of the switch looks like its wider than most junction boxes?
This is great, I did not know Lutron had a version without the neutral. Is it only the dimmer version? I need a standard switch. the one I bought has a required neutral wire.
Thanks for the video. I tried putting in the Costco Feit dimmer switch today and could not get it to work after connecting and reconnecting the wires. I finally figured out that the second black wire in my box was not a neutral but a load. So the switch won’t work as it requires a neutral. Gonna buy these Lutron ones you recommended to get the smart switches in my house.
Thank you very good video. I have a older home and I ran my neutral wire for two switches for another brand and wow. I much rather pay more for a brand that doesn’t require that of me again lol.
Are there any dimmers that connect to a HUE Hub without a Nuetral wire? I've already got a hue system set up and don't want spend the money and space to add a second Hub system.Thanks!
Well that was stupid. It’s not installing a smart switch with a ground, it’s installing a smart switch that doesn’t require a ground.
Key statement here. “How to wire a smart switch that does not require a neutral wire” If your switch needs a neutral, you will still need a neutral wire.
I’ve got 4 led ceiling lights connected connected to my smart switch similar to the setup here. The lights are slightly flickering even though I’ve installed a 0.33uF capacitor which came with the switch. I was thinking to put a bigger capacitor in hope of solving the issue. Any thoughts?
Hey, so in my wall theres only two wires, no neutral or ground. Can i still install a smart switch, if so which one?
So we can bypass the iotty switch just like that?
