    3-Way Switch Wiring

    Thanks for the replys guys. I decided to go with the Caseta switch since it will be the best solution and doesn't require a neutral. The main switch basically acts as a single pole switch and then the second switch is just a wireless remote mounted in the wall that controls the main switch. I...

    3-Way Switch Wiring

    Yeah, thats it. I went through it last night with a multi meter disconnecting and reconnecting things so I could map it all out. I'll include the drawing I did. That being the case, there is one thing that could possibly work from what I can tell. I dont know if it would be allowed by code...

    3-Way Switch Wiring

    I did some research and ended up ordering a Lutron Caseta starter kit. It doesn't require neutral and the second switch is completely wireless. I'm pretty sure that in my diagram, switch 2 is the switch that has the line in and would be my main switch. The common terminal on that switch always...

    3-Way Switch Wiring

    Looking more, I think I am going to be out of luck regardless. With this setup there is no neutral to power the smart switch.

    3-Way Switch Wiring

    No, its in the living room, one at each entry. Not sure if it matters, but it seems like they put everything in the living room on one circuit. One overhead light, one set of switched outlets (the bottom of most of the outlets), and the regular outlets. Edit: Just realized the dining room...

    3-Way Switch Wiring

    I am usually ok at figuring out small electrical projects. I am in the process of switching out a set of 3-way switches with some smart switches. I pulled the old ones out and I am trying to understand the wiring before I install the new ones. I dont like not fully understanding what I am doing...

    Low voltage in wall

    I have my TV mounted on the wall in my family room. While doing so I read about the restrictions about running power in the wall. I ended up going with a kit designed for high voltage in wall applications to make sure I did everything the correct way. Now I am faced with a dilemma though. I...

    Sump pump question

    Thanks for the responses. I think I did actually find some contact info, so I am going to try to reach out. That is the thing that has always perplexed me. The sump pit seems to go both ways. It seems like if you drop the water level below the inlet pipe level, it will always fill back up to...

    Sump pump question

    I am not sure if this is the right forum, so if its not it can be moved. Its a little bit of a weird question, but I was hoping maybe I could find some information. We bought a house a few years ago. It is in the country and has the typical sump pump well setup. However, randomly one day the...
