We could use a little help with a 4-way switch setup that isn’t currently covered in any of the installation documentation provided by Inovelli or other smart switch sites.
We’re setting up a new installation, and we decided to go with Inovelli red series dimmers throughout the home. We have an existing 4-way light-switch setup in the kitchen where we’d like to incorporate one of the red series dimmers. Attached, is an illustration of what we’re trying to do (without the wiring, of course) and we’d love some guidance or recommendations on how these switches and lighting should be wired together.
Thanks in advance to anybody that might have the info we need.
Thank you, everyone, with your help. We’ve decided to try out a configuration using the smart switch and a couple of “AUX/Add-On” switches. And thanks, @harjms, for the heads-up about neutrals being required for GE brand AUX switches. That would have likely caused us some head-scratching if we ended up using them.
@Ma2J, the current configuration is using 1ea 4-way dumb switch, and 2ea 3-way dumb switches. The power enters the switching circuit at the 4-way switch The two 3-way switches are on either side of the 4-way switch, and the load (a few can-lights) is connected to the other end of one of the 3-ways.
14-1? Precisely why I’m asking for an actual wiring diagram. I can’t see how the 3-way to the right (in the above picture) will work without 3-wires. Two travelers and a common. Too many blanks to be filled in before making any suggestions.
