I'd like to replace my kitchen ceiling light switches with smart switches.
Currently there are 2 switches controlling the lights, one in kitchen and one next to stairs. But I failed to identify the neutral, hot and traveler wires.
The 3-way smart switches I bought comes in pair of two units. Each unit has 1 ground, 1 neutral, 1 load out and 2 travellers, as shown below:
The switch in the kitchen has 4 wires connected: AAA,BBB,CCC,DDD:
The switch in the stairway has 3 wires connected: HHH,KKK,SSS:
I first replaced only the stairway switch like so:
SSS = neutral, HHH = load, KKK = 1 of the traveler ---> didn't work
Then I tried to keep stairway switch as-is (original), and only replaced the kitchen switch. I tried:
AAA and BBB = traveller, CCC = load, DDD = neutral --> didn't work
AAA and BBB = traveller, DDD = load, CCC = neutral --> didn't work
I'm very confused.. could anyone help me identify AAA, BBB, CCC, DDD, HHH, KKK, SSS wires? Any help is appreciated! Thanks
