If that is the case, then it should be rather easy to determine which of the two black wires is line using a circuit teste. The dimmer has 4 wires, I attached an image of the wiring diagram.
I initially tried to attach the dimmer to one of the wires from the group of neutral wires. Evolve seems to be the brand name for ACT’s residential line of products. Evolve has several names. They are white wires so they may be neutral wires.
Evolve Lrm-as 120 VAC 500-watt Wall Mount Dimmer
In one photo, I see several wires twisted together. I can’t really tell what wire colors you have because of the paint. In that case the other black wire is load. It seems to indicate that the white wire and blue wire both go to the load wire”. What the wiring diagram is telling you is that you need to provide a neutral wire to the switch and a neutral wire to the load.
The white wire connects to the neutral coming back from the load and returning to the load center breaker box. I twisted the neutral wire from the dimmer in with the others and added a wire connector. I often had to remove the yellow wire and trim the green wire in order to get them to fit. Now I just need to finish installing the other dimmers. I would appreciate any help that you guys can provide. I took a look at them after you mentioned it.
EVOLVE LRM-AS Z-wave Wall Mount Dimmer W White
I’m anxious to get everything set up. In my house, I usually had to run a new wire from the switch’s electrical box to the fixture the switch controlled so that I would have a neutral available for the switch. The wiring diagrams for Evolve switches can be ecolve.
Since you are replacing an existing switch, you should not have to worry about running a neutral to the load because it is already in place. Have a look here.
I removed the paint from the other wires but they are all black so I need to determine which one is line and which one is load.
The yellow wire is not needed, except if you want to have the equivalent of a 3-wire circuit.
The neutral isn’t usually wired to standard non Z-wave switches. I had to attach the neutral to the group of neutral wires. The neutral wires were pig tailed together with a wire connector on the end. It seems to indicate that the white wire and blue wire both go to the load wire but the diagram also sesm to indicate that the white wire should be connected to a neutral wire. One is the ground and I assume the other two are the line and load but I am not sure.
You need to determine accurately the function of each wire in order to install the switch safely. Please login or register. My switch box only has 3 wires going to the current light switch. Smart Home, made easy. You are right about the twisted wires.
Home Help Search Login Register. You need a neutral usually white in the U. Ill pick up a wire tester to figure out what the wires are. Did you miss your activation email? It also appears that you are fortunate to have a neutral wire already available for the switch.
If those twisted wires are neutrals, that’s where the white wire would connect, if they’re part of your light’s circuit. The Evolve switches are not complicated to wire, but with all the extra wires they take up a great deal of space in a switch box.
I’ve attached images of the wires. Thanks for the response. I figured it out.
