I'd like to replace my current light switch with this one: https://www.amazon.de/-/en/gp/product/B07RV3KXF4. Wiring diagram (focus on the one on the right):
My house is a rather old one and I only have two wires (no ground) in my current switch box which makes me conclude that the switch is at the end of the line loop:
I'm an amateur diy hobbyist, so please correct me if there's something wrong with the following list of actions:
- According to the smart switch diagram, I need a power cable in my switch box. I plan to add it from a nearby electric socket which is on the same circuit as the switch.
- I could then use the hot and neutral wires from that cable as my input ("Eingang" in the smart switch diagram).
- I would then need to disconnect the power source coming into the light bulb box (everything except ground?) and instead of the white neutral wire connect the white wire with black tape on it (see buildmyowncabin.com image above).
- I could then safely connect the remaining two initial wires in the switch box as my output ("Ausgang in the smart switch diagram).
If I understand correctly, such configuration should successfully work with dimmable LED light bulbs, right?
