new to this forum, wondering if anybody could help ?
Im installing a master dimmer ( 2 way 2 gang dimmer) one gang will operate one set of lights whilst the other gang will operate another set but will work in conjunction with another switch located at the other end of the kitchen. For this I have been told I needed a slave dimmer which is 2 way 2 gang, to work with the master, the other gange operates a set of lights under the kitchen cupboards.
My question is what wires go where ! I have attached more details
Here is the switch as it stands which I want to replace with the Slave:
The Bottom 2 Red (Com and L1) wires operate the lights under the cupboards, does the COM red go in the Live or the Load of the dimmer , the other red will obviously go into the one thats left ( not the slave entry)
To act as the slave for the other connection I have 2 yellows in L2, one red in Com then a feed from that into L1 and also a Blue wire into L1.
Im not sure where the wire goes from COM to L1 in the dimmer, nor where the 2 Yellow wires go!
Is COM the Live and the L1 / L2 the load ? Im puzzled why the red wire goes from COM to L1
