Model: HS210
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hi, I've looked through the help and tried searching but am coming up with inconclusive answers. I have wiring to 3 lights on my garage that I was hoping to control with an hs210 (have several other tp-link products that work great and installed with no difficulty).

 

i thought my 3 way switches had a neutral since there was a bundle of white wires in one, but looking further one of those whites is connected to the switch in the house. Near as I can tell I have the included wiring schematic to them. Is there any chance one of these switches will work in either the house or garage location?

 

Thanks!

@Blusmbl As your wiring diagram shows the neutral goes directly to the light fixture.

You do not have a neutral at the switch boxes.

@B.Will thanks. I just stuck a meter on it and the white bundle is reading +121v when I put the + on white and - on black, so definitely no neutral.

 

Are there any products that will work on this circuit or will it have to be completely rewired if I want to add automation to it?

@Blusmbl You should measure from ground to each lead. Then flip the switch and measure any lead that showed 0volt before.

I have not used other products.
