I installed and setup a couple of these switches yesterday in a three way configuration in a non-neutral setup and am experiencing some weirdness.
I have tried wiring the switches in basically every combination and they mostly work as they should.
Room 1: Dimmer installed (non-neutral) 3way setup using a GE Aux switch. Do not have pics of the old setup as the 2nd box just had the three wires tied together to disable the switch prior to me doing the install.
The Wiring is as follows
Box1 (Stairs) Inovelli Dimmer - Red wire connected to Traveler, Black wire connected to Line, White to Load
Basement Lights - Bulbs are not LED so no bypass installed, though i do have a bypass
Box 2 (Basement Wall) GE Aux switch - Red connected to Traveler, Black and White connected to Neutral
Without Black/White connected to Neutral the main switch doesnt powerup.
Behavior: The main inovelli switch works 100% of the time correctly, the Aux switch powers off lights everytime, but only powers on the lights sometimes after pressing on/off repeatedly.
Room 2: Dimmer installed (non-neutral) 3way setup using a GE Aux switch. (Actually have pictures of orig switches before they were unhooked.
Box 1 Old Setup: Black Screw (Red Wire), Srew above on same side (White Wire), Screw on Opposite Side (Black Wire).
Box 2 Old Setup: Black Screw (Red Wire) Screw right below it on same side (White Wire), Screw on opposite side (Black Wire).
Box1: Inovelli Dimmer (Hallway) - White Traveler, Red Line, Black Load
Kitchen Lights: This is an LED light, added in the bypass resistor. Only wires in the fixture are white/black.
Box2: Aux Switch (Kitchen) - White Traveler, red and black to neutral
Behavior: Same Behaviour as Room1
Any thoughts on what the issue could be for either of the rooms? The house is an old house built in the 60’s. I can probably get into the attic and re-wire the entire Second Room (Kitchen but would like to avoid it possible). The First room i cannot get to where the wires are as there is a floor above so there isnt any easy access.
Maybe the Aux Switch I am using isnt one that is compatible? I am using a GE In wall add-on switch. The model number listed is ZW2004.
