I recently asked a question about installing a dimmer and got a great reply. Now I want to install another dimmer, but this one might be tricky.
In our hallway there are three lights that are all simultaneously controlled by 3 light switches.
I want to replace one of the 3 light switches with a dimmer so I could use that to dim the lights and the other 2 switches could just remain normal on off switches. Is this possible?
Here is the dimmer I want to use and its instructions:
I opened up one of the light switch fixtures and this is what I got:
So I have four wires going from the switch directly into the fixture. Looking at the instructions I can see what to do if there are 3 wires, but I have four. Can this work and if so how do I hook er up?
EDIT: Ok I read more about this and found that in this kind of setup there should be two 3-way switches and one 4-way switch. It looks like I opened up the 4-way switch right? So does that mean if I open up one of the other switches it will be a 3-way?
