You have given me confidence to do my own projects which I never had before. Three-wire cable runs from there to the controllers on the wall. Or, locate the internal wire that is Hot. The black wire is the hot wire and leads back to the wall switch. It shows the components of the circuit as simplified forms, as well as the power as well as signal links in between the devices.

At the end of the power wire and the end of the firewall wire put a butt connection between them and clamp it together to make it stay in place. Household circuits usually consist of a black wire, a white wire and a bare copper ground wire. Where do you connect diff.
