I don’t mean to imply that there’s something wrong with the switch; I need help figuring out if I’ve wired things incorrectly. After hooking everything up, the LED on the switch is glowing but when I try to turn the switch on/off manually or through the app, the lights don’t come on. Since I’m using a dimmer switch, I’ve confirmed that brightness is set to 100%.
I read the FAQ ([FAQ] GE 3-Way Wiring) for wiring switches in a 3-way configuration and I believe my setup is “Light between switches #1”. Note that I’m not able to remove the existing kitchen light fixture to see all the connections properly. Also, the neutral wire going to the second switch doesn’t have a black tape around it.
As instructed, I connected only the neutral and the traveler wire to the second switch and left the black one dangling for the moment. These are the before and after pics of both the switches: https://imgur.com/a/umCrKM8
Any help is appreciated
