Model: HS200
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have a 2 switch panel in which I want to replace only one switch with the HS200.

 

From left to right:

Switch 1: Controls the outside lights and it is the only switch that controls the lights

Switch 2: Controls the inside doorway light and it is the only switch that controls the doorway light.

 

 

I want to replace Switch 1 with the HS200. However, there is 1 Black wire coming from the box wrapping around Switch 1 and going to Switch 2.

 

Here’s what I am thinking on how to wire the switch and need some expert advice if it is correct and safe to do:

  1. Take the first black wire and wire it to HS200 Black Wire 1
  2. Take the second black wire that wraps around Switch 1 and wire it to HS200 Black Wire 2
  3. Connect copper wire to HS200 Green Wire
  4. Connect the white wires in back of box and wire to HS200 White Wire

 

Is what I described above the correct and safe way to do it?

@mhjr85 You have it correct, just cut the loop so that the two wires can be put flat together with the black #2 from the switch under a wirenut.
