I am new to home automation and have been lurking and reading alot. I took the dive and bought a bunch of equipment so that I could start automating my lights (Google Home, Smartthings hub, bunch of GE switches, and some motion sensors). As I was trying to install my smart switches, I ran into an issue where non of my switch boxes have a ground circuit. I tried searching the forums but could only find threads where folks did not have a neutral (something that does not affect me).
My question is, do I need a ground for these switches, and if so, do I just tap the neutral wire as these are electrically equivalent? Your help is greatly appreciated.
