Model: KS230 KIT  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version:

Hello, I am trying to install KS230 KIT with two 4-way switches in the middle without success; the Master is blinking rapidly red. Bypassing 4-way switches looks like working fine.
What is the best ks230 wiring diagram for that scenario ( I have 4 points for the same leaving room lights and Master is a first, and Slave is the last in the chain)
Thanks

Gadi

From what Engineering has told us the KS230 is not compatible in 4-way environments.

The Non-Dimmer version of the HS210 can be used in a 4-way situation.  In fact, only 1 HS210 is required to be used in any 3-way or 4-way environment as only one switch is ever configured and on the network.  The KS230 does require the 2nd switch, which is a dummy switch, to operate properly and the reason it won't work in a 4-way.  

 

This means you only need to buy a HS210 1-pack or can purchase the 2-pack and use the switches on separate 3-way or 4-way runs.  

 

The only thing you need to know about the HS210 is that the switch needs to be installed where the Line side is.  This is so that the switches wifi module always has a flow of power to power the wifi module allowing, voice, app and remote control

Gadi: While I'm not much of a fan of them, I believe the Feit dimmer does work in that configuration.
