Replacing a duplex Receptacle, but new one has no feeder

Posted by Kev84 (My Page) on

Hi All,

I recently got into home automation and bought one of these:

to replace one of these:


The problem.

The old one had black and white come in AND black and white OUT (feeding the next receptacle).

The new one i bought only feeds out 3 wires black, white, green.

There fore the problem is, my current receptacle is replaced, BUT there is no power going out to the next receptacle, as the new one does not have a feeder to go out.

My question is, is there a solution to this problem, or simply, if i use one of these new switch without a feeder, its over for me.

Thanks and regards,

You just connect them with the wirenuts. There is a picture in the instructions showing wirenuts from the line-in to the receptacle. Just connect the black, white, green/bare with the line-out.
