A neutral wire is required for the Orro switch to work. If your house was built in 1985 or later, there is an excellent chance that you have a neutral wire at every light switch location in your home. If you’re not sure, the best way to figure out is to check inside your switch box.
How to check for a neutral wire in your switchbox
Follow the directions to check for your neutral wire. Please observe all safety precautions before handling the electrical wiring in your switch boxes.
STEP 1 - GATHER TOOLS
Phillips Screwdriver, Flathead Screwdriver, Pliers (optional)
Power tools are not recommended
STEP 2 - Turn Off Power
Turn off the circuit breaker for the light switch you’re replacing.
Breakers may be found in a garage, hallway, or basement. If you can’t find the specific breaker, turn off the master breaker.
Make sure the power is OFF by toggling your switch on and off a couple times. Lights should not turn on.
STEP 3 - Remove Switch Faceplate
Unscrew or pop off the existing faceplate. If there is dried paint connecting the plate to the wall, use a box cutter to remove the faceplate cleanly.
STEP 4 - Unscrew Switch
Remove the screws from the top and bottom of the switch.
STEP 5 - Pull Switch Out of Wall
Pull switch out as far as possible so that you can clearly see all the wires in the switch box.
Do NOT detach any wires yet
STEP 6 - Take a Photo
Keep track of your wires! Take a close up photo showing the existing wire connections.
STEP 7 - Identify Neutral Wires
Look for a white single wire or bundle. The neutral wires may or may not be connected to your switch. If you see a white wire or bundle of wires you very likely have a neutral wire.
STEP 8 - Continue Installation or Get Help
If you found the white neutral wire. You’re good to go and you can start installing your Orro Switch.
