Warning

Not all wire colors shown may be the same as what's in your box. While we've tried our best to match the most common setups, local electrical codes may be different than what's depicted. If your wire colors do not match, please use a multi-meter to check for continuity, hire an electrician or post in our community where someone can help. Again, we are unable to give specific wiring advice ourselves due to liability issues.

Single-Pole Installation (2-Way)

Please see below for wiring diagrams for a single pole setup. Remember, a neutral wire is required.




3-Way Installations

Three way installs are when you have two switches controlling one load. Please see below for the various configurations. Note: You can only use this switch with an existing (dumb) switch and you won't have dimming capability at the dumb (existing) switch. If you'd like to use an auxiliary switch or another smart switch, please purchase our Gen 2 switches .

3-Way Installation (Using a Dumb / Existing Switch)

Please see below for Inovelli wiring diagrams for a 3-Way (two switches controlling one load). This assumes you are using a dumb / existing switch as your secondary switch. Remember, a neutral wire is required. In addition, please do not use an illuminated switch for your secondary switch.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO REWIRE BOTH SIDES (SMART SWITCH & DUMB SWITCH).
OPTION 3 REQUIRES REWIRING AT THE FIXTURE AS WELL.
