I just bought a smart things hub, and I bought a few GE 12727 switches. I have one installed and it works perfectly. However the second one is where I am having an issue.
When I took the original switch out, I only appear to have a Line, Ground, and red wire (assuming traveler wire), but I don’t have a load switch. The other odd thing, is there is no other light switch that controls the outlet, so I’m not sure why there is a red (possibly traveler) wire. When I looked at the original wiring, the red wire looked to be in the same location where I would expect the load wire to be. However, if I try to put it in the load location on the 12727, nothing happens, and I can’t power the switch.
I can’t seem to figure this out, and I’m confused at a missing Load wire. I saw someone saw you could possibly operate without a Load, but I’m unsure how exactly it should be wired. Anyone happen to have any help/suggestions?
Thanks for your time!
