I am really perplexed here - Hoping that it can be resolved.
Currently - There is no power to the light using the NEW GE Switches wired as above.
However, the Smart Switch appears to be working as the light is Blue and the Smart App thinks the light is coming on and off.
I tested the bare wires - (From the left side Switch)
RED Connecting with WHITE Shows Current
RED Connecting with GROUND shows Current
Connecting the bare wire Black & White - the light goes on. (The Smart Switch 12724 is active)
This basically creates a on/off circuit - However, this does not give me a 3 way switch.
HERE IS THE FINAL SOLUTION that WORKED - THANKS !!
