Help With Two-Way Two-Gang Light Switch for Upstairs and Downstairs

Postby drewjuk » Sat Feb 24, 2018 1:43 pm

Hi All,

I have just taken out some smart switches on my hallway/landing lights, I have totally forgotten how it was wired up before, seem to have lost the pictures I took.

All the diagrams and help on-line refer to different wiring methods, hopefully someone can help me.

There appears to be a Black and Red wire from each light to the related socket (up/down), and a switch wire between the switches (R/B/Y), I managed to get one two switch working for the downstairs light, but not both. Now I can't get either working.

This question has (almost) been answered on another forum.

Just to clarify, are the two switches (on both switch plates) both working two separate two way circuits or is one a two way and the other a one way?
