Wiring is Not That Hard
So you want to do some smart switch wiring! Wiring can be a bit technical and intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be. Installing a wired switch is probably one of the easiest wiring jobs you can do!
First a note of caution: I am not an electrician. This wiring information is not certified. I share it only to illustrate how easy the process can be. You should only undertake wiring if you are comfortable with it and know what you are doing. But I think that when you see how easy some of these items are to wire, you might be up for learning how to do it yourself!
You Don’t Have to Be an Expert
You don’t have to be an expert or an electrician to wire a smart switch. If you are comfortable with a screw driver, cutting wires, and operating a circuit breaker, you will be fine. The guides below will walk you through the step by step process. If you have never done wiring before, start with getting basic wiring kit. Or at least get a wire stripper from your local home improvement store. These basic tools are all that you need to wire smart switches.
