I am working with a 4 switch box. I will number the switches 1- 4 from L to R.
Switch 1 – has a green wire to the bottom terminal which has been jumpered from switch 3. The top terminal has a black wire connected.
Switch 2 – has the green jumper but no wire from the black terminal.
I have no idea of what these 2 switches connect. I have checked outside lights and wall plates in the room where the box is located and elsewhere.
Switch 3 – controls overhead lights in the room. It has a black wire on top and bottom switch terminals and the green jumber.
Switch 4 – controls fan. Has the green wire exposed to the location. Also in the space is a tri-wire (black and red) All nutrals have been joined and wire nutted. All grounds are connected.
Fan/light has a tri-wire coming out of the ceiling (white, black and red)What do I hook to what on the Honeywell switch

I apologize as I will not be able to assist you with your electrical question. I am currently stuck on an electrical construction project for the next few days. Rather than keep you waiting, I will opt out of the question and place it back to the open board and another expert can assist you. No need to reply back to me, you will be notified once another expert picks up the question..........Thanks............Kevin:)
