Wiring 120 VAC LED Panel Mount Indicator with Aeotec Nano Switch

Not open for further replies.

I'm wanting to install a 120 VAC LED indicator light (https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/593-CNX722C200120W) into a wall plate that is connected to a z-wave Aeotec nano switch (https://aeotec.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/6000162385-nano-switch-user-guide-). The use of the indicator light is simply to notify me if my garage door is open (all by use of SmartThings). There would of course be no physical switch installed.

I have never installed an LED indicator light before. I saw that they are available in DC and AC. I went with the AC so I wouldn't need a transformer. I have read from a previous similar post (https://www.electro-tech-online.com/threads/light-switch-120v-led-indicator.147509/) that the LED indicator needs to be wired between the live and neutral wires.

Does is matter what wire (positive and negative) from the LED is connected to the neutral and live wires? Is my wiring schematic (attached) correct or am I missing something completely? I do have some experience with electrical work, but am aware of my limitations. Any help is greatly appreciated.

That looks fine.

As long as it is a 120V AC rated LED, there is no external +/-, the LED package itself will have rectification and current regulation included.

Bare LEDs are polarity sensitive and must have external current limiting but packaged AC "lamp replacement" & indicator types have that all included.
