I have bought a smart outlet which has only three wires (Green, White, Black), however, the wiring available in my condo has four wires. I would appreciate it if you could help me in properly setting up the outlet.

    Can you post a photo that looks into the back of the outlet box please? Dec 8, 2020 at 0:00

    Eh, Canada and US wire color coding isn't that different -- what you have is a conduit job, which lets the electrician pull out the fancy colors to suit, more or less ;) Dec 8, 2020 at 0:28

    Also, is the tab on the hot side of the existing receptacle intact, or broken off? Dec 8, 2020 at 0:29

    Which half of the receptacle is controlled by the existing switch(es)? I'm guessing it's the top, but I'm not 100% sure Dec 8, 2020 at 1:03
