I started a previous thread where I was asking about using smart switches with smart lights, and @JDRoberts pointed me to the FAQ of all FAQs on this topic. I did see some mention of what I believe I’ve attempted/accomplished in the photo below. So here’s a DWH6HD dimmmer. The line is hardwired to the lights. Then I jumper off that to power the dimmer. Neutral and ground are connected per instructions. So, the question is: is this truly safe? From my own understanding, it would seem to be. All I’ve done is to avoid directing power through a relay. So, is there a realistic concern that this will explode during the night and burn down my house and wipe out my family?
If anything is not safe, as the FAQ says, is that you have to turn off the power at the breaker to service the fixture. I won’t call up DBI if you don’t.
