Hi I’m replacing a dual light switch, each button controlling separate lights in a lounge. I have bought a Mihome RF lightswitch and need to connect the old wiring to it, any advice appreciated.

As you have the switch and we don't what do the instructions say?

Oh, and will it fit in that back box you have? most wifi switches need a 35mm back box

Looks like

One side of lounge is L & L1
Other side of lounge is Lx & L2

The permanent (looped) lives are L & Lx (I assume red)
The switched lives are L1 & L2 (I assume black)
