I bought this switch from Amazon , which I’ve used to replace the in-wall light switch in my office, which originally controlled only the ceiling light. My goal was to extend the capability of the switch to control the ceiling light, as well as two additional lights controlled by Z-wave plug-in modules. What I found when I opened the switch-box is that instead of having the required 3-leads (load, line, and neutral), the switch was wired with only 2-leads (line and neutral apparently).
I installed the switch anyway, hooking the white lead to the Neutral terminal on the Jasco switch, and the black lead to the Line terminal. The switch powered on and controls the two floor lamps with Z-wave plug-in modules perfectly. The problem is that the ceiling light is no longer operable.
I thought I might be able to resolve the situation by running a lead between the Load and Neutral terminals on the Jasco switch, but this results in the ceiling light coming on briefly for a moment, and then going out, which is followed by normal operation of the two Z-wave tethered floor lamps.
Has anyone else faced this problem? Is there a solution at the switch-box, or am I going to have to re-wire from the ceiling down through the wall (I’ll probably live without the ceiling light before I do that!). Thanks for any help/advice.
