I’m slowly setting up my new home with a wink hub, and I was hoping to get some advice regarding the wiring of some light switches. I have two questions…
First is more of a sanity check; my switch looks like so: Switch 1 Diagram (sorry, I can’t post images as a new member). For description, the switch has two black wires attached to it, while two white (neutral) wires are braided together in the box and not connected to the switch at all.
Because the Leveton switch requires a neutral connection, is it okay to do what I have in the diagram? That is, is it okay for me to splice the white cables to connect to the new switch’s neutral terminal, and move the former black load wire to the red terminal on the new switch?
Second question is a bit more tricky… I have a box with two light switches in it going to two different lights: Two Switch Diagram
Right switch has two black wires and two white (similar to the single switch in my first scenario). The black wires are going directly into the switch and the white wires are braided together, separate from the switch. Both sets of black and white go back out of the box. Left switch has a black and white wire coming into it: white at the top, black at the bottom.
I have no idea what’s going on outside the box. If I wanted to add two more Leveton switches of the same type (requiring a neutral connection), what would I do (if it’s even possible)?
