I hope this is the right place to post this. I am trying to set up a GE Smart Switch and two add ons in a 4-way setup. I am able to get the main switch to work with one big caveat. It works as long as the switch next to it isn’t on.
The main switch is in a three gang box. Two of the switches in this box are on the same circuit breaker (I’m not sure if that’s pertinent, but I figured it can’t hurt to share). If the switch next to the GE Smart Switch is off, the smart switch works fine. When I turn on the other switch though, it turns off the smart switch. I have not been able to get the AUX switches to work at all though.
I’m not even close to an electrician but going into this, I figured it couldn’t be that hard. At this point, I’m thinking that my wiring is going to prevent me from using these switches. I’d appreciate any help though figuring out if that is the case or if I’m just missing something. I’ve attached a few pictures to try and make this a little easier to understand. Let me know if you need anymore information.
This is the box I have tried to install the GE Smart switch in.
I attached the line and neutral from the HIG cable.
This is the box that the 4 Way switch was originally in. I tried
installing the AUX switches here and I tried just about all
combinations of wiring. (As a new user, I’m only allowed one photo upload so the rest are links)

Here is the third box that I tried to install the final AUX switch in

I’m also limited to two links so if you need additional photos, let me know. If you read this, thank you so much. I hope what I wrote was at least almost coherent.
