Model: HS200
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: What ever it ships with....

I've installed 4 of the HS200's in my house without issues, but this one has me a little perplexed and wanted to make sure I did it right.  One light switch is connected, it controls the light on the fan but not the fan itself.

 

In the switch box, there is a Black/White/Green wire coming from the bottom and a Black/White/Red/Green wire coming from the top.  The two blacks are on the top of the existing switch (one on the screw and one in the hole in the back), the red is on the bottom of the switch (in the hole) and the Ground(Greens) are together and on the ground screw.  The white (neutrals) are together with a wire nut and pushed to the back.

 

So,to keep it so the HS200 only controls the light and not the fan, how would I hook it up?

 

I assume I take one black from the HS200 to each back from the two sets of wires, and of course whites together and green together.

 

I'm unsure what to do with the red wire.

 

Hopefully that makes some sense.

 

Picture attached if that helps.

@tward1 The two blacks that are together stay together and connect to one of the blacks from the HS200.

The red goes to the other black of the HS200.

White goes together with the whites in the back of the box.

The green goes together with the greens in the box.
