We are replacing a single dumb switch in a 3 way setup with an red series dimmer. The neutral wire exists.
Our first Inovelli switch. Love the concept, but it is not functioning as expected.
The answer to my issue is to change configuration #22 to “1” – “3 way toggle.” However, I did that and it does not change the behaviour.
Wiring: Line into one box, traveler to 2nd box; load out of second box (in all this, I’m ignoring the ground. Ground wires are connected to each other and to green screws on switches, as applicable)
- red series dimmer
- 3 cables:
- presumably line in – black and white wired to the lzw31
- presumably the rest of the circuit: black and white wire nut to line #1
- traveler to other switch; white wire nut to the other two white in the box, black to load, red to traveler
- dumb switch
- 2 cables
- traveler: black and red to the two brass screws on switch; white wire nut to the other cable’s white
- black to black screw on switch, labeled “common”; white wire nut to the other cable’s white
The power on the lzw31 is always on, regardless of the position of the dumb switch. The lzw31 connects and behaves as expected to the hub (home assistant).
Configuration 21: “1” (neutral)
Configuration 22: “1” (3 way toggle)
Problem: with the dumb switch in position A, the lzw31 performs as expected; lights perform as expected. With the dumb switch in position B, the lights go off. The lzw31 still shows the dimmer bar increasing or decreasing, but the lights stay off. If the lzw31 shows “on” when dumb switch goes from B to A, lights turn on; if lzw31 shows “off” when dumb switch goes from B to A, lights stay off.
From everything I’ve read, the problem should be solved by changing Configuration 22 from 0 to 1, which I’ve done through the hub. The behaviour has not changed.
I’m sure I’m doing something simple, but can’t figure it out.
One other quick note is that I attempted, and believe I did–change the configuration directly on the switch (hold down config until yellow, then 13 taps – 1 long yellow, 3 short yellows: press up bar, 1 purple blink: hold down config until yellow then release: get two cyan blinks). However, when I then connected the switch to the hub, configuration 22 was still showing “0” - single pole, not “1.” Perhaps this is where I’ve gone wrong?
