Today we are installing two GE 12722 in wall smart switches, side by side in a two-gang switch box. You will need tools for this episode, including a phillips screw driver, flat-head screw driver, small flat-head jeweler’s screw driver, and a pair of plyers. It’s a good idea to have extra wire nuts and a pair of wire strippers. To ensure you have a good understanding of the switch, you will find a detailed overview of the switch and a detailed explanation of the terms used by the manufacturers instructions.
The DIY Smart Home Guy is adding a new water feature. In this episode we plan to hook this into our Wink smart home system and then into our Amazon Echo. To do this we will add a second GE Outdoor Zwave Smart Switch (GE 12720). We already have a fountain in the back yard. Our goal is to allow for independent control of each water feature as well as group control via the Echo.
