  • Yes, it will work without a Neutral wire.

    You can search the web for this product catalog PDF file from Lutron that clearly states that neutral wires are not required:

  • You must be mistaken
    All 110Vac electrical outlets and circuits require a Neutral, to carry the load back to the source
    This Neutral is then Bonded to ground and cold water pipe at the drop , which is at the main
    panel following the meter only, its a violation of code to bond the neutral anywhere else beyond the main panel
    Not to mention the magnetic field generated by neutral / ground bonding beyond the main
    is probably not very good for you

    You are obviosly mixing up a circuit without neutral for a circuit without ground
    they typically used cotton covered wire with this type of circuit

    So this device should operate fine without ground unless the OEM requires this as safety concern
