wiring to operate a light from three or more switches


Postby Cala Sona » Sat Oct 11, 2008 3:44 pm

I can find information on how to wire up a circuit for a light or lights to be operated by TWO different switches, but nothing on how to do it for a light operated from THREE or more switches. Is it just a case of duplicating the connections of the second switch at the third switch and so on?

You need an intermediate switch diagram on my site http://www.ericpalmer.fsnet.co.uk/Lighting.html

Thanks for posting up the information Eric. Unfortunately I can't really follow the diagram so I think I'll just call in a sparky!

Sorry to here that seems I have failed! I would be interested in improving the page to help and if you want you can act as my Guinea pig and help me improve it?
Or you can just get someone in.
