I’m trying to replace my existing 3-way switches with smart switches. My current setting is line-switch-switch-load with the neutral only connected to light. If I try to replace the second switch (connected with load) with a smart switch, should I do the following?
- Disconnect the line cable from first 3-way switch.
- Pull a line cable to the smart switch from supply. I do see hot line in the box of this second switch, but it is only used by another circuit. I’m assuming I can use the same HOT line for this smart switch as well.
- Connect the neutral cable (that is currently going straight to light bulb) with the smart switch neutral terminal.
Am I getting this right? I’m attaching the picture of the switch in question (second switch of line-switch-switch-load circuit).
