The dimmer has 4 wires, I attached an image of the wiring diagram. My switch box only has 3 wires going to the current light switch. One is the ground and I assume the other two are the line and load but I am not sure. I’ve attached images of the wires. It seems to indicate that the white wire and blue wire both go to the load wire but the diagram also sesm to indicate that the white wire should be connected to a neutral wire.
I would appreciate any help that you guys can provide. I can’t really tell what wire colors you have because of the paint. You need a neutral usually white in the U.
The neutral isn’t usually wired to standard non Z-wave switches. In one photo, I see several wires twisted together. It seems to indicate that the white wire and blue wire both go to the load wire”. The white wire connects to the neutral coming back from the load and returning to the load center breaker box.
If those twisted wires are neutrals, that’s where the white wire would connect, if they’re part of your light’s circuit.
You need to determine accurately the lrm-ss of each wire in order to install the switch safely.
Evolve LRM-AS – Wall Mounted Dimmer – White
Thanks for the response. You are right about the twisted wires. I took a look at them after you mentioned it. They are white wires so they may be neutral wires. I removed the paint from the other wires but they are all black so I need to determine which one is line and which one is load.
Ill pick up a wire tester to figure out what the wires are. If that is the case, then it should be rather easy to determine which of the two black wires is line using a circuit teste. In that case the other black wire is load.
Evolve has several names. Evolve seems to be the brand name for ACT’s residential line of products. The wiring diagrams for Evolve switches can be confusing.

What the wiring diagram is telling you is that you need to provide a neutral wire to the lrm-a and a neutral wire to the load. Since you are replacing an existing switch, you should not have to evplve about running a neutral to the load because it is already in place. It also appears that you are fortunate to have a neutral wire already available for the switch. In my house, I usually had to run a new wire from the switch’s electrical box to the fixture the switch controlled so that I would have a neutral available for the switch.
The Evolve switches are not complicated to wire, but with all the extra wires they take up a great deal of space in a switch box. I often had to remove the yellow wire and trim the green wire in order to get them to fit. The yellow wire is not needed, except if you want to have the equivalent of a 3-wire circuit.
I figured it out. I had to attach the neutral to the group of neutral wires. The neutral wires were pig tailed together with a wire connector on the end.
I initially tried to attach the dimmer to one of the wires from the group of neutral wires. I twisted the neutral wire from the dimmer in with the others and added a wire connector. Now I just need to finish installing the other dimmers.
