  • 4 switches to one fixture

    There is 4 three way switches hooked to one fixture at my house. I was replacing switches and now can't get it to work again. Normally, if you wanted to wire 4 switches to one fixture, I would use two three way and two four way switches. All of the switches I removed only had a common and to traveler terminals. They seem to have put wire nuts on some of the wires going to the box bypassing the switch. Does anybody know how to wire 4 three way switches to one fixture???

      glad you figured it out cause I tried for fun and can't get it to work even if I use extra wires along with a 14/3. Can you tell us how they made that work

        please do tell us how that works i hate to be a doubter but i dont think its possible to switch a light from three places without using a four way

          Sure you can.

          It's just more expensive.

          Lutron, Lightolier, need I say more...?

              This system can actually do scene lighting, using the red wire of the old threeway switching system as a communicator, and black and white for power and neutral.

              There's a master and slaves. So, you could use the dimmers (even without the scene lighting control) as a fourway on a three-wire system.

              Just for fun.
