What I have: Linear WS15Z, Linear WT00Z, Aeon Minimote, SmartThings hub
What I’ve done: I installed a Linear WS15Z on/off switch on one end. With the regular paddle on the other end, the light works fine as long as the paddle is in the “on” position
I pulled out the paddle and installed a Linear WT00Z 3-way wall switch on the other end. None of the lights in the hallway will turn on now.
Both ends had 1 red, 2 black (one with 120V and one with 0V), some gray (neutral) bundled together, and one pure copper wire (ground).
On both ends I connected the Linear’s green wire to the pure copper, Linear’s white wire to gray, and capped the red wire.
On the end with the WS15Z, I have the Linear’s blue wire going to the black wire with 0V, and the Linear’s black wire going to the 120V black wire.
On the end with the WT00Z, I have the Linear’s black wire going to the black wire with 120V. I capped the other black wire with 0V.
I used the Aeon Minimote and associated them together.
With the current setup, the blue light on the bottom of the WS15Z turns off when turning the switch on, and it turns on when I turn the switch off. The WT00Z’s light does not come on. I was told this is expected, so this is why I assumed I had the configuration correct.
I even read into the manual and read that JUST the neutral wire going from either end of the hallway should be hooked up to the Linear switches. We tried every single combination and could not get that to work either.
Do you know of anything else that could be going on here? I’m totally baffled.
I even swapped out one WT00Z thinking maybe I had a bad one… Still the same results.
This is a brand new house in the USA, so I’m positive it’s built to code and with all of the wiring standards.
Could it be that I have the switches in the wrong areas? Could it be possible that I need to switch the physical locations that I have the WT00Z and WS15Z? I thought it didn’t matter which was in which spot, but… could it?
