Installed my first 3 Inovelli Switches with no issues… Being over confident, I decided to try on a 4 way switch I have and I got stuck and learned some fun things about my house.
I either had a drunk or genius electrician wire my 15 yr old home. Here’s what I found:
Electrician set up a 4 way switch system using only 14/2 romex. I was expecting 3 wire Romex… How does this even work? HTF
After getting my ass shocked, I realized the electrician cross connected neutrals across 2 different circuits. WTF
See the drawing… I have no idea why this works… I obviously want to isolate the 2 circuits…
Any thoughts on how to wire this so all 3 switches control the load?
I was hoping to use a single Black Series On/Off in the chain but I can’t see how that will work now since there are no traveler wires
In Insteon world, 3 ways are created by master/ slaving switches to create a virtual 3/4 way switch. Not sure if this is an option but willing to do this if this is the only way. Is this possible in a Zwave world?
