I’d eventually like to install a couple of Inovelli Red Dimmers in my living room. The house we’re in was built in 1969. I popped off the panel for the two light switches (one for the living room light, the other for the front porch light) to see what things looked like.
I assume the black and white are the load and line. Also, given the age of the house, I didn’t expect to see any neutral wires. My question is concerning the copper ground.
The copper coming from each line appears to be soldered to another piece of copper, and then screwed into the metal housing. So, am I correct to assume that since the housing is theoretically grounded, they just used a “jumper” piece of copper, which soldered to the ground wire, and connected it to the housing?
IF that’s the case, could I get two more short pieces of ground wire to “jumper” between the Inovelli switches, connecting them to the soldered portions with a wire nut?
Thanks for any input!
