I don’t know much about wiring so I thought I would start a new thread that covers my specific need instead of trying to decipher the various threads that have discussed z wave fireplace hookups.
I have a gas fireplace that has a remote as well as a switch (picture attached). I am trying to replace the switch in the picture with a z wave device. To summarize: I do not not want to include the remote that came with the device and I am not looking to have a manual power switch. I want the device to turn on/off only by z wave commands. The blower is a dial on the fireplace itself so that is not a concern here.
The switch has 4 wires coming out of it (2 red, white, gray) and those wires bundle into two gray wires that go into the wall. If I am correctly understanding the various threads that cover this topic, do I only need to add the Remotec device?
