Hi there. I have one z-wave 3way + Aux switch, two zigbee 3way+ aux switch, and three different fan canopy / switches coming in … I love the products and the support.
I am troubleshooting a situation wired like this post for a 2-1 BLUE Series 3-way …
So I have a line and load in separate boxes, neutral available at the line box, no neutral available at the load box. The only wiring diagram available for this is
Which is NOT really what I have.
In one box I have:
Two traveler wires going over to the 3 day dumb switch
In the other box I have:
Two traveler wires from other 3 way
Power TO THE LIGHT
I wired it basically like this -
So … when it started up, it was doing a cyan, blue, green flash and after a while I was able to pair it and get it up. I changed it to an aux switch and smart bulb mode in HA. At that point the smart bulbs (ledeply) flashed on and off in weird ways, not like they wanted to join the network.
The light fixture has three bulbs so I put in three dumb bulbs [60w + 60w + 15w - what I had, these are E12 sockets] and the work fine in dumb bulb mode. And fine in smart bulb mode except they never turn off. It seems to have good behavoir if I just add one conventional bulb …
So I am guessing I need that a bypass eh ?
I wish I could use the neutral that is available in the line box and install the smart swtich there. And then install the aux switch at the load box. But from the line box to the load box is only a 14-2 wire with black & white. One is the traveler … and if the smart switch is in the line box, the other is the switched load … but I never plan to operate in non-smart switch mode.
I tried to wire it like this picture … and the main switch works fine, I bound the group to the switch and it works great - but the aux switch is worthless.
Any guidance would be appreciated. I think we need better diagrams for 3-way, aux, no-neutral.
