I am having some difficulty figuring out how to install a GE Smart Switch in a 3-way configuration with a set of recessed lights (a set of 6 or 7) in our kitchen.
The beige/white on the Common screw always has power, and the two travelers get power switched between them. There is no neutral bundle in this box.
Because the lights are recessed, I don’t have very good access to see if the power comes into the light or into a junction box up there, but I’m open to ideas to help figure out what to do.
I’ve been reading/looking at wiring diagrams for the past day or so and I can’t seem to figure out what’s going on (i.e. why I don’t see a neutral bundle in the 1-gang box).
I’m assuming that because the Common screw in the single-gang box is always powered that that is where I’d have to put the Master switch and I’d have to put the Add-on Switch into the 3-gang box) Is that correct?
Is there a preferred way to add a neutral down into the single-gang box? Is that the correct solution?
Thank you in advance.
