Hey folks, I have a couple of questions - I realize the wiring questions have been asked and answered a million times but my config seems just a it different than any I’ve seen so thought I would ask again.
First, simple usage stuff - I’ve got a new Zwave plus GE (master) dimmer switch that I want to combine with two aux switches (haven’t bought yet) and I wonder how they work?
I.e. obviously these switches don’t have on or off but have momentary action - When I push the top portion I assume the light would turn on, when I push the bottom off. Now, what about dimming? Do I push and hold to dim either up or down?
I’m thinking that if I leave the old (aux) switches in place, I can leave them in the “on” position and test fly the master switch until I decide if the setup can be made to work…
And, regarding the GE aux switches, they have the same momentary up and down action I think, will they, in combination with a dimmer master, also dim the jointly controlled switch?
Then, with regard to wiring - Two of my receptacles have available neutrals - these are neutrals from other lights which all go back to the same breaker, so I think it’s fair game to just add a pigtail to the bundle in the box.
But what about that other box without a neutral? Do I need to somehow run another neutral to that box or is there a workaround somehow?
I have a few smart bulbs but these are my first smart switches so thanks for the help!
