I’ve done very basic wiring before (replacing switches and outlets), but never a dimmer and never with a Z-wave one.
I am trying to install the Evolve LRM-AS dimmer to the lights in a bedroom. The lights are on a fan, and there are two light switches in the room (one for lights, one for fan). I am keeping the fan on a switch and just using the dimmer for the lights.
The Z-wave dimmer I have has four wires coming out the back of it:
In the junction box all the white wires are tied together and all the grounds are tied together (no ground going to the two switches).
The light switch has red coming into the top and black going out of the bottom.
The fan switch has black on both top and bottom. All the black wires are capped together.
the dimmer wiring diagram says the blue wire goes to the Load. I tied the white and ground with their respective colors, tied black into all the other black ones and connected blue to red because I thought red was the load. However this didn’t work. I ended up putting everything back the way I found it and thought I’d come see if anyone here had any ideas into what I was missing.
