I am replacing one of my switches with a GE zwave switch. This particuar setup is a 3way switch but we don’t ever use the other switch and would like to eliminate it and just make it a single switch. I know how to wire up the new outlet and know how to do it single or 3way but I need help eliminating the other switch. From what I have been told I can just tie 2 of the wires on the switch I want to get rid of together and cap the rest, does this sound right?
On the main switch (the one I am replacing) I have 2 black (Line and Load I presume) a red (traveler) and ground. I also have a neutral bundle I can tie into.
The switch I want to eliminate I have 2 red (one of those is on the black screw) a black and ground. I would like to tie these up and just leave the dead switch in there until we decide exactly what we want to do.
I am going to attach 4 pics, the first 2 are the switch I want to replace and the last 2 are the one I want to eliminate. Can some one take a look and help me out ?
