Hello I am trying to install a WiFi light switch that requires a neutral line. I could look at the Lutron but I figured I would ask about this possible solution as I have these switches elsewhere. I have read many threads and I think I can resolve this on my own. I’m fairly competent but certainly not a professional.
From my front door I control the driveway light pole. There is a junction box in the garage that the light pole comes into. From what I can tell the junction box is also tied into by the garage interior and exterior lights. There is a large bundled group of neutral lines in this junction box as well.
My problem is that the from the junction box to the switch they ran a line and with no neutral. I don’t know if there was a specific reason. So my question is can I replace this line from the junction box to the switch with a new one with a neutral line? And can I connect the new line to the bundle of neutrals in the junction box? I have read that it’s better to go back to the panel but I think I am good to connect to neutrals in the junction box in the garage?
Again, I am fairly competent but also know that something like this can be a borderline call an electrician task.
