I'm converting my home to use all Leviton smart dimmers (DH6HD-1BZ) and LED lights. All has gone well so far with neutral being accessible from most switches.
However I've come across an old-school 3-way with load going to the fixture not the switch box, please see the following diagram:
Switch box A looks exactly as is shown in the diagram. Switch box B however is a larger box with other switches where neutral is present.
I know I need neutral in switch box A as well, but I've heard there is some possible trickery where I can bring neutral over to box A from box B.
So my questions are two fold:
- Is it possible to bring neutral over to box A from box B, perhaps utilizing one of the travellers? Can I just use ground as the neutral for switch A (I know this is faux pas, but should be possible right?)?
- If it's possible to get neutral to box A, I don't entirely grok how the dimmer and it's remote switch should be wired in the first place. The wiring diagram provided with the switch (see below) isn't this type of 3-way configuration so I'm kind of stumped here as well.
Thanks for your time!
