Hey everyone,

I bought this 3 light smart switch and having some trouble installing it.

I unscrewed one of the existing 3 light switches and it has a total of 7 cables, 2 per light + neutral (see below)

151994


Also to note, 2 black cables are tied together by the blue tape and attached to the 3 red wires you see on the right.

The smart switch only has 5 cable attachment points:

151995


How do I wire this switch given there are less cable inputs than the existing setup?

Many thanks everyone!

You should hire an electrician.
No point in hiring an electrician.
An electrician won't install it as there are no approvals on that POS from China.
Fire waiting to happen
