I"m trying to hook a WD500Z into a 3 way switch setup in a new house. This would be the master switch and, if I can ever get it working, I would put one of the WT00Z switches as a slave.
Here’s my problem:
In the gang box I have a bundle of white wires (neutral), a bare copper wire (ground), and connected to the old switch were two black wires and a red wire.
Coming out of the WD500Z are a white wire (neutral), green wire (ground), a black and blue wire.
So I have one more wire than I need. I tried hooking the two black wires in the gang box to the black and blue of the switch (in both possible permutations) and capping off the red wire without success.
The corresponding switch across the room that also controls this light (the one I’d attach the WT00Z to) has neutral, ground, a red wire and two black wires as well.
This setup is not dealt with in Linear’s instructions and I can’t find anything online to help me except this diagram ,which seems to represent my situation:
But I’m still at a loss as to what to attach to the WD500Z. Do I connect both black wires in the gang box to a black wire on the switch, and the red wire to the blue wire on the switch?
Thanks in advance.
