I purchased 5 boxes. Every one of the boxes only came with one thing of wire labels. Am I supposed to reuse the labels? I’m confused.
I just checked mine, I only had one set of stickers also. However, the main wire to know is the Line vs the Load (2 Black Wires). Those have to be hooked up correctly. I never used my labels.
If you are not familiar with Electrical work
The line side of an outlet is where you connect the incoming source power. The load side is where the power leaves the device (or electrical box) and travels down the circuit.
Only one set in my my multiple 3 packs. I found it curious as well, but. I believe the intent is that they are just used so you don’t lose track of the wire as you install with the breaker off and not to leave them on upon completion.
Generally, and I say generally because you never know what you are going to run into depending on who did the work before you…but,
Load is generally on the top half
Line is generally on the bottom half
Now I am no licensed electrician, but have been a DIY homeowner for a long time and have only been shocked a couple times.
I always suggest a wire tester with any electrical work, small investment for a lot of peace of mind.
Abso bloody lutely. A little paranoia is a good thing. I like a meter instead of a tester or lightbulb, so you can also figure out weird wiring and ground faults. And, course, shut as many breakers as it takes.
I asked Wyze about this, and they responded by telling me to return all of my Wyze switches? Thats a weird respone, to be honest. I didn’t even end up using the labels anyway, so it isn’t much of an issue. Thank you for all of the responses.
I bought a single Wyze Switch from Home Depot (and two 3-packs from Wyze directly). When I got the single pack, I did take advantage of the labels, because “Hey, why not?”
I agree that the 3-pack should come with 3 sets of labels. Seems like an error on someone’s part, to me. Or else, Wyze is trying to save a few pennies…
