You don’t have to reconnect them if the power or wi fi go out. They kind of just reconnect automatically. These also work with google assistant and alexa big shout outs to gosun for sending these out for the video and also sponsoring the video let’s go ahead and get started. First, up we’ll take a look at what all is included in the box, so i have here a four pack. They actually sent me 13 of these i’m gon na i’m, actually going to replace most of the light switches in my house with these. But for this video we’re going to do just a quick, install process and i’ll show you guys how they work, but here i’ve got four light switches in the four pack. You can see there’s all the wiring for those it comes with wiring nuts, and then it comes with outlet covers for each of the switches, there’s also a manual here. So a quick thing to mention these are single pole only if your light can be controlled from two different power switches, that’s, a three way switch and the ghost sun light switches will not work. The manual also gives you a wiring diagram, and then there is the qr code for connecting these light switches to wi fi and getting them working with your assistants. So before you get started with, you know touching any live wires or anything like that. Just for safety you’ll definitely want to come to your electric panel here and make sure that your breaker is turned off for the light switch that you’re going to be working on just for a little bit of extra precaution.
Of course, you could check the lines with a volt meter and i’ve got no power, so we’re good, alright, so i’m going to go ahead and take these out for the go sun light switch here. The red is going to be your load, wire, black is live, white is neutral and green is ground, so you’ll just have to kind of figure out which wire is which, in your light box here, so your neutral lines is normally going to be just a bundle Of white lines pushed back into the receptacle it’s, not necessarily going to be connected to anything. Your load line is normally going to be connected to the top half of your switch, and then the the line lines will be on the bottom half of the switch. So i think ghostline has these labeled as live. Those should be on the bottom half of your switch and then, of course, your ground is generally going to be a bare copper, wire. Okay, so i’ve got everything wired up here, i’m gon na be mindful of the fact that when i turn my breaker box on these will all become live, but i’m gon na go ahead and test my light switches just to double check that everything is wired up Properly before i uh install the light panel back in the wall, okay, so i’m, not sure if you can see the blinking green lights, but these light switches are now turning my lights on and off.
So i know that i’ve got all my wiring correct i’m gon na go ahead and put this back in place and then i’m gon na show you guys how to connect these to your assistant. Next up we’re going to launch the go sun application, you can find it in the link in the description, so go ahead and add the device we’re going to add a switch. This has to be on a 2.4 gigahertz network, so it’s not going to work on a 5 gigahertz network. If your router does both make sure that you do separate the networks that way you can connect to the 2.4 gigahertz network, so i’m going to go and connect to my 2.4 gigahertz network and i’ll put in my password to that network all right. It says if the indicator is blinking fast, skipped skip the reset step, otherwise hold the reset button for five seconds. So if you need to reset this you’re gon na press and hold this button for five seconds to reset it as long as the lights are blinking green, fast, you’re good to go so we’re going to confirm that and select next and now it is adding the Devices alright, so it did find both of my switches here and it has connected to both of them i’m going to go ahead and rename these so i’m going to rename these to kitchen both of them, because both of these are kitchen lights. And when i talk to the google assistant i’m just going to call it kitchen, so we’ll call these kitchen, hopefully it’ll.
Let me name them both kitchen, okay and done all right. So now i can control these from the application. So, as you can see, i just turned off the lights in my kitchen and i can turn them back on all right like so you can also control them from the wall all right, so next up we’re going to go ahead and connect this to our google Assistant so i’m, going to go into the google home app all right and i’m gon na go ahead and hit the plus sign here set up a new device. We’Re gon na go with the works with google. Okay, we should be able to search, go signed all right, so there’s go sun and we’re gon na go ahead and link our accounts all right. So now that we’re linked, we should be able to speak the command. Okay, so we’ll go ahead and give this a try: okay, google turn on kitchen sure turn 2. Okay, google turn off kitchen: okay, i’m. Turning off two switches, all right, and just like that now we have smart light switches in my kitchen, alright guys that about wraps it up for this video, the ghost on lights were incredibly easy to install. It only took me about 30 minutes and i have no electrician experience, so it was very easy for me to do that. I’M. Sure it’d be easy for you and i love the fact that they do connect to google home and alexa and give you that voice command ability, which is really awesome, i’ll, be sure to include a link in the description of where you can pick up your own.
Go sun light switches thanks for watching be blessed.
