Help with replacing 3 gang 1 way light switch with smart switch

Postby Jcsky » Thu Dec 10, 2020 4:40 pm

A little help please, in a new build and want to replace a 3 gang 1 way switch with a smart switch. Switch is for kitchen. 1 for down light for dining table, 1 for under cupboard spotlights, 1 for ceiling spotlight. Reason for smart switch is it’s located in hall not kitchen so can be a pain, in the pictures u can see the wiring, just asking if anyone thinks this can be replaced by smart switch ? Thanks

Simply Build It

You are in luck, your switch wiring has a neutral in the back, so yes you can, but I would suggest you get someone to do the job for you, you may also need a new deeper back box, depending on the switch you choose.
