    Hi all,

    I'm wiring one of those smart switches which is a single gang and I have three live wires (x2 com) (x1 L1) and three neutral wires that are currently in a block. The original switch just use live (com and L1).

    I've wired up the new switch with the live wires but I am trying to attach the neutral wires. Do all three need to connect to the switch or could I get away with one being attached and the other two in the block?

    Thanks in advance!

    if you cant fit all neutrals into the terminal then join them together in a choc block and do a jumper from the choc block to the terminal. the main thing is that all neutrals are connected together

    No you cannot separate them. If stuck connect them together in a 4 port wago and take a neutral from it and into the switch

    Fantastic, thanks for the advice. Used a jumper cable and it works like a charm!

    Big assumption that neutrals are neutrals and not switched lines that haven’t been sleeved

    They were already connected together, and the system was working.
