I’d like to have better control of my lights with ST, but most of my switch boxes have no neutrals and that makes things more complicated. If I have a switch box in the bathroom that has a GFCI receptacle and three switches, then I have to have a neutral wire in that box for the outlet right? Tagging @Navat604, Ray I’d appreciate any thoughts you have. Thanks in advance.
In the pics below the receptacle has one white and one black wire attached. The black wire goes to a wirenut that’s joined with a black wire to the switch immediately to the left of the outlet (control for an exhaust fan) and the line coming into the box. At least that’s what I think, because that bundle of black wires is hot when I check with a multimeter.
The white wire from the receptacle also goes to a wirenut joined with two other white wires; they each enter the box from separate bundles. I think one white wire is coming from the ceiling fan, and the other goes back to the circuit breaker, i.e. neutrals. That white bundle is not hot when I check with a multimeter.
I know the pics probably aren’t great but I was trying to figure it out without unscrewing all the switches. But I should be able to replace the ceiling fan switch with a smart switch, right?
