Installing ge 12722 in 4 way configuration.

I am trying to install the ge 12722 in a 4 way configuration. My wiring is set up in option 2 on this page http://www.easy-do-it-yourself-home-...g-diagram.html

I had troubles initially but I think I finally got it figured out. I just need to check some things.

Through some experimenting I found that in switch 2 that if I apply power to the black wire that leads to switch 3, I get power in the red wire in switch 3. If I apply power to the red wire in switch 2 that leads to 3 I get power to the black in switch 3. It seem like the wires switch color in the wall.

What I ended up doing is this:
In switch 1:
Live wire to line
Other black to load
Red to traveler
white to neutral

In switch 2
Black from switch 1 connected to the red that is going to switch 3
Black that is going to switch 3 and red from switch 1 into traveler holes for add on switch
White to neutral wire

In switch 3 I have the 2 blacks connected to each other and the red going into traveler and white to neutral.

Is there anything wrong with that putting 2 travelers traveler holes of the ad
Any idea why the wire seems to change color?

Welcome to the forums.

Your picture is not correctly inserted.
Your description is nearly impossible to follow as we know nothing about your setup including what switch 1, 2, and 3 means .

putting 2 travelers traveler holes of the ad ???

In looking at the online installation from GE/Jasco for this switch I see this warning....

I need you to make sure I'm looking at the same instructions you are. We've seen a lot of confusion with these Wifi switches.
