I have a switch Box with 3 switches, each switch goes to a different light, these lights are ONLY controlled by these three switches, there are no other light switches for these lights.


In the Switch Box , there are 4 Romex wires coming in.


The color code on these wires is ,,,White , Black and Copper (Ground)


I assume 3 of these wires go to the lights


1 of these wires is likely the feed , load or source


All Blacks are together 

All Whites are together

All Copper(Grounds are together


The 3 switches all have 2 black wires going to them 


On the switches:

One of the Black wires is wire nutted with all the black wires together


And one of the black wires returns to the light (into the wall) I assume


And again all the Whites are wire nutted together


I want to replace 1 of these switches with a HS200, is this the right device ?


The HS200 has 2 blacks a White and a Ground


I have actually tried a couple different configurations with the HS200 and either the light stays on , or stays dim and when on goes bright,

Obviously I am not making the correct connections, and do not want to cause an issue.

To use the HS200 the Load and Live wires must be seperate.  In older homes the load and live are sometimes a single wire.  If you only have 1 black wire or if there is no netural wire then you would not be able to use the HS200 in that switch box.
