I have a conventional rocker switch that controls the overhead light in a room. I intend to install a Sonoff Mini R2 smart relay behind it so I can use the switch in my smarthome setup.
When I open the box, this is what I see (with grounds omitted for clarity):
There are three Romex cables in the box. All of them have their neutrals bundled together. Two of the load wires share the lower terminal on the light switch, and the third is on the top terminal by itself.
My understanding is the shared lower terminal is likely allowing the lower terminal to also join the two load wires and send power further down the circuit.
The smart relay has six terminals: Two neutral-in, one line-in, one load-out, and two for the switch:
Here's my question: To wire this up, am I correct in making these changes?
- Join the line power and the load for further down the circuit with a wire nut
- Run a pigtail from that wire nut to the L-In terminal on the smart relay
- Connect the lighbulb load line to L-Out on the smart relay
- Run the neutral wire from the light into one N-In terminal on the relay
- Run a second neutral wire as a pigtail from the bundle to the other N-In terminal on the relay
- Connect the switch to S1 and S2 on the relay
That would look like this:
I'm hoping to get someone to sanity-check this before I start wiring, since I'm still very new to home electrical and don't want to, y'know, burn the house down because I overlooked something. 🔥
