I have a set of canned lights that are switched from 4 different locations and each of those switches have 4 wires to them. How can I use a Dimmer Switch? I have installed Numerous 3 way dimmers in the house already, Lutron Maestro. Any way to use these? Or can you recommend what to use?

  • Do you want dimming control at all the locations? Also, can you post photos of the insides of the boxes involved? – ThreePhaseEel Feb 11 at 4:59

    Are you sure each of the four switches have 4 wires, not counting grounds? I'm thinking there should be 2 3-way switches and 2 4-way switches. What type of bulbs are you using? – JACK Feb 11 at 12:59
