    Question PD-5WS-DV-WH Installation (Black, White and Green Wires) with LUT-MLC

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm trying to install PD-5WS-DV-WH (Doesn't require neutral wire) to one of the bedrooms.

    My current switch has Black, White and Green Wires. (Refer to the diagram below).
    I would need to install LUT-MLC as well but I am just confused with the wiring.

    2) How should I wire LUT-MLC?
    Instructions is showing that I should connect it to the load and neutral but I don't have a neutral wire.

    Please let me know if you need additional info.
    Thanks,

    Since these are the only 3 wires connected to your switch, that white wire isn't a neutral wire. it is a switched-return wire. It really should be marked with either a black marker, or a black piece of electricial tape to indicate it's not a neutal.

    For the PD-5WS-DV, one black wire from the PD-5WS-DV would connect to the black wire from your wall, and the other black wire from the PD-5WS-DV would connect to the white wire in the wall. Then the green wire from the PD-5WS-DV would connect to the green wire from the wall. Finally, cap off the end of the blue wire on the PD-5WS-DV. You won't use it.

    As to the LUT-MLC, since that white wire in the wall isn't a neutral, you won't be able to install the LUT-MLC here. It would have to be installed up at the fixture. See page 72 of http://www.casetawireless.com/Docume...ced%20Inst.pdf for more information.
