Thought I’d make my own post and stop hijacking others. What I’ve come to find is that my 3-way switch is setup like this –
I’ve seen others mention having this setup as well and I can’t decipher if folks are saying it’s just not possible to setup smart switches with this setup?
Currently tried to wire it and had Hue lights in, those bulbs strobed when the power was restored. Then I tried a tiny edison bulb lying around and it didn’t turn on, but the switches appeared to work, the add-on switch was turning the master on/off - and the ST hub was able to connect to the switch and remote turn it on and off. With no bulbs in the ceiling the switches aren’t functioning (no lights). I’m going to drop by Lowes and get some normal LED bulbs to see if they’ll turn on with this… if they do then I’ll just scrap my Hue lights.
