Smart Switch Installation Guide for 2 Plug Module

Ready to upgrade your home with smart technology but unsure where to start? Don't worry; we've curated a comprehensive guide to ensure your installation of the 2P smart switch is smooth and hassle-free. Follow these detailed steps for a seamless and smarter living experience!


Installation Essentials:

Before you begin, gather these essential tools and materials:


  • Insulated screwdrivers (star or flat)

  • Insulated pliers

  • Voltage tester

  • Wire strippers

  • Multimeter (optional)

  • New smart switch

  • Insulation tape

  • Appropriate wires (based on load and requirements)


Ensure you have everything ready to proceed smoothly with the installation of your 2P smart switch.


Safety Tips for Smart Switch Installation:

  • Read the smart switch instruction manual thoroughly.

  • Turn off the main circuit breaker and double-check with a voltmeter.

  • Use insulated tools and wear protective gloves.

  • Clearly label all wires for easy identification.

  • Ensure your workspace is dry and organised.


These steps will help ensure a safe and successful installation of your smart switch.


Module Compatibility and Console Box Specifications:

When preparing to install the 2P smart switch, understanding its compatibility and console box requirements is crucial for a successful setup:


Module Name: 2P

Console Box Size: 233 mm x 78 mm (9" x 3")


Module Specifications:

  • Socket (P2, P3): 6A each


Installation and Wiring Guide:

  1. Turn off the power at the breaker box.

  2. Label the phase, neutral, earth, and other load wires in the wall console box.

  3. Study the terminal labels on the product's wiring sticker to ensure correct wire connections.

  4. Connect the wires to their designated terminals as indicated below:

    • Neutral (N): Powers the device.

    • Earth (E1, E2): Ground connections.

    • Phase 1 (P1) UPS/EB: Primary power supply.

    • Phase 2-3 (P2, P3) EB: Socket inputs.

  5. Check the wiring setup video for your specific type at home. Ensure all connections are correct, secure, and free of loose strands.

  6. Use insulation tape to secure exposed terminals and wire joints.

  7. Use a prying tool to carefully remove the glass panel without touching the circuit board.

  8. Insert the enclosure into the 8-module metal console box and secure it using the provided screws (M3.5*30mm).

  9. Align the top glass with the enclosure and press it firmly to lock it in place, ensuring that all four corners are securely locked.

  10. Restore power and test the switch for proper functionality.

Wiring Setup Scenarios:

Type 1: Two Power Sources (EB + UPS and Common Neutral)



  1. The phases for EB and UPS will remain separate.

  2. The neutral line will be common for both EB and UPS. 

  3. In the above scenario, the phase and neutral connections will be as follows:

    • The UPS phase is connected to P1, providing power to the device.

    • The EB phase is connected to P2, providing power to the plug and ensuring an earth point (E) is connected for the plug.

    • The UPS phase is connected to P3, providing power to the plug and ensuring an earth point (E) is connected for the plug.

    • The common neutral will be connected to N.


Type 2: Common Phase (EB or UPS and Common Neutral)



  1. The P1, P2, and P3 phases share the same phase line, either from the EB or UPS.

  2. The P1 phase is the primary power supply.

  3. Establish a loop connection from the P1 phase to the P2 and P3 phases to create a common phase line.

  4. In this scenario, the phase and neutral connections will be as follows:

    • The EB or UPS phase is connected to P1, providing power to the device.

    • The P1 phase is looped to P2, supplying power to the plug, and ensuring an earth point (E) is connected for the plug.

    • The P1 phase is looped to P3, supplying power to the plug, and ensuring an earth point (E) is connected for the plug.

    • The common neutral will be connected to N.


Type 3: Common Phase(EB or UPS) but different Load Capacity



  1. The P1, P2, and P3 phases share the same phase line but have different load capacities, such as 6A and 16A, respectively.

  2. The P1 phase is the primary power supply.

  3. In this scenario, the phase and neutral connections will be as follows:

    • P1 is responsible for 6A load variants. The EB or UPS phase is connected to P1, providing power to the device.

    • The P1 phase is looped to P3, supplying power to the plug and ensuring an earth point (E) is connected for the plug.

    • P2 is responsible for 16A load variants. The EB phase is connected to P2, supplying power to the plug, and ensuring an earth point (E) is connected for the plug.

    • The common neutral will be connected to N.
