I have 2 GE smart switches that I want to wire in the same double gang box. 1 switch is for a porch light and the other is for my interior vestibule. There is only 1 power source in the box, and that power source will continue on to another switch elsewhere. All wires contain a black line, white neutral, and a bare copper ground line. I understand how the power line and ground line has been jumped from one switch to the next and then out to another switch,and the load lines to the lights, but what I don't understand is the neutral lines. Both of the smart switches have a line, a load, ground and a neutral clearly labeled. I did wire the neutral wires using 4 way connectors. Neutral line from hot wire, neutral from smart switch, neutral from light, and last neutral to jump to smart switch 2 in the box. The second 4 way connector has one incoming neutral from previous 4 way, smart switch neutral, neutral from light, then an outgoing neutral to continue out to another location.
Here is the question. I powered everything up and setup my smart switches and there was light. Although when I turn switch 1 on, both lights turn on, interior and exterior. Likewise, when I toggle switch 2, both lights turn on/off. When I use the GE app I installed, i can turn on light one without turning on light 2. It's only when i physically toggle either switch that both lights turn on/off. Did i do something wrong?
