I am considering to add a dimmer to a place in my apartment (lets call it Stair_Dimmer2) where it supposed to work as a stair switch, so I am able to switch off my Hall light (lets call it Hall_Dimmer1). Unfortunately, I do not have a wire in between to use it as per manual recommendation. I thought, it would be somehow possible to just put a dummy load (bypass) to a Stair_Dimmer2 and build association from both ends between them so I could turn on/off the same light from both ends of my apartment. My questions are:
1. Will that solution work?
2. Is minimal load required or can leave dimmer outputs empty (I believe it will not work without any load)?
3. Will I be able to properly dimm the light from Stair_dimmer2 with that solution using association?
4. What are other solutions to provide a stair switch solution without a wire in between with a remote dimm capability?
For your information. Both dimmers are older one - firmware 2.2 (Dimmer 1 is the dev type I believe - without energy measure) - see screenshots.
