Super newbie here. I quickly learned that bulbs are a complete fail for me because other’s in my household just turn off the switch and my smart things become disconnected things.
So, I want to put my first switch in my master bedroom. I have a ceiling fan with the fan connected to a three knob type switch that turns to off/slow/med/fast. This is not my main concern, I can leave the fan on that switch for the moment. First order of business is to replace the dimmer which controls the bulb connected to the fan. There is currently a knob type dimmer in the same box which controls this light. I want to replace just the light dimmer with a smart dimmer.
I have decided what switch to go with yet but I would prefer if it was Zwave so I can use it with my ST hub and also a Zwave stick I have yet to toy around with.
First I don’t know if I even have neutral which I have heard, I will need in most cases to replace switches.
So, can anyone tell me by looking that the attached pictures if I have the wiring (Neutral) I need to replace the dimmer for the light with a smart dimmer?
Also, what switch brand model would you recommend? Zwave preferred as mentioned and not a lot of $$ would be nice too.
Finally, if someone can point me to some instructions on how to rewire it, that would be icing on the cake. Maybe best to ask about the actual wiring in a separate post one I have the switch in hand and know that I have the wires needed.
Thanks in advance for any help.
