I’m pretty green with electrical work so I may be missing something obvious here.
My problem is that the dumb switch on the other end will not control the lights. If I turn it off then it kills power to the smart switch and nothing works. If it’s flipped up then it will turn the lights on, but they turn right back off. That allows the smart switch to function properly, but obviously I want them both working.
I believe they are wired correctly and here is why, but please correct me if I’m off base. When the dumb switch is flipped ‘up’ and the smart switch is functioning properly…and the smart switch has the lights turned off…the only wires reading live are the line in and the traveler wire. The traveler wire on the dumb switch is also live at this point. When I use the smart switch to turn the lights on then the load becomes live at the smart switch along with the line and load on the dumb switch.
Any ideas are appreciated
