I bought a automatic light detector and I’m having trouble figuring out how to set it up. I have a 12-3 wire coming from the wall. I have a have 2 hot wire and a neutral wire coming from the wall. My wall is already grounded so I don’t need the ground wire. How should I set up new light detector?
By “light detector” do you mean a lux sensor? Or something else?
And in either case, what’s the brand and model number?
This is the automatic light sensor.
TOPGREENER TSOS5-W In Wall PIR Motion Sensor Light Switch, Occupancy Sensor Switch, On/Off Override, Single-Pole, Fluorescent 500VA/ Motor 1/8Hp / Incandescent 500W, Neutral Wire REQUIRED, White. It has 4 wires attached with it. A load, live, neutral and ground. If you need the model number I can give it to you.
OK, that’s what we call a “occupancy sensor switch”. But it’s not networked at all, right? You’re not expecting it to integrate with your SmartThings system. You’re just asking a general wiring question?
Yes sorry it’s just a general wiring question
