  • How to install 2466D with only a white, a black, and a neutral?

    Hello all,

    Apologies if this is covered elsewhere. The title pretty much says it all. Photos attached. Thanks!

    You won't be able to use that switch without a neutral. There are ways to make it happen by using a micro-module in the fixture but you'll want to use an elementary to make sure it's fine properly. By looking the switch to the micro module you will then be able to control the light

      That is a switch loop. There is no Neutral. Just Line and Load. You may find a black band or tape on the White Wire. It is most likely the Line from the fixture.
      They do make a two wire Switchlinc that uses Line and Load only. It is only designed for Incandescent loads. As it steals power through the Load.

      You maybe able to rewire the Black and White wire in the fixture. To provide the Line and Neutral power. Then cap off the Load wire and link it to a InLineLinc or Micro Module inside the fixture.
