Hi, If this is for 2way on stairs there is something not right upstairs! you r a blk + blue missing!
If u have 2-3core & E cables down stairs it would imply 2 X 2 way switching sets but where to? other end of hall? recheck there are no other wires in upstairs box, also for 2 way on stairs u need a 3 term. 2 way sw.
have a good look & return B.W. SPARX
