I’m looking for help with wiring to install a smart switch alongside a regular switch in a 2-gang box. I’m not sure how to handle the neutral wire the smart switch needs because all of the white (assume are neutral) wires are currently bound together with a wire nut.
This is a 2-gang box with one set of wires coming in with power, and then two switches each separately wired up to separate lights. I only want to make one of the switches smart which needs a neutral line for the switch.
Here is a drawing of the wires in the box. I used gray for wires which are white, yellow for bare copper wires, and red for all other wires.
How do I undo / re-wire the neutrals to work properly?
Is it okay for the ground / bare wires to all be twisted together after installing the smart switch? Am I supposed to undo the wire bundle and connect any to the ground spot on either switches?
If it matters, I’m using the GE Z-Wave Plus SKU # 14291 on/off switch (no dimming).
Thanks in advance!
