I'm replacing two switches (which control separate lights) in a two-gang box with two smart switches (TP-Link HS200). To make my questions as clear as possible, I've sketched the current state as well as my plan for the smart switches:
My questions are as follows:
Does the future state look okay? Can I group all live and all neutral wires together per my plan?
I live in Cook County, which requires conduit. Does this mean I can attach the grounds from the smart switches right into the 2-gang box and that's all I need?
The smart switches don't distinguish between a line/load. Will they just figure this out? Or do I need to make sure I use the same one as a line/load for each since they'll be connected?
Any guesses as to what the other orange/load wire is running up to? This room only has two lights, but I don't want to interfere.
Thank you for any advice you can provide-- as I'm sure is apparent, this is my first time with this!
