Neutral wire?

Hello everyone, I’m in the process of converting all light switches to smart switches and wonder if there is a neutral wire in the box I can use for the non dimmer type.

Also how’s everyone’s experience of mixing Caseta with other cheapo switches off amazon...have been waiting for Caseta to come down in price but still very pricy...


Thanks!

the white wire tucked away in the back would be neutral
Something something dark side...

Thanks a lot. What'd be the best way to connect it? unscrew the pigtail and insert the neutral from the switch and then screw the pigtail back on?

You're welcome

Yes, when I did my smart switch installs, I just re-used the existing ties. It can be a bit tricky to get all 3 wires in the tie but it can be done.

Also, obviously make sure you kill the power at the breaker and confirm the switch is dead before proceeding :)
