Dimmer2 and three light switches in parallel


ViewPoint
 Share

Question

Hello, 

 

I'm trying to use the dimmer as a switch for a starway with three light switches. The reason I'm using dimmer is, of course, because there is no neutral wire. I wonder if a use of on-by-default wall switches will help me get all three working with the load. Here is a drawing of what I'm trying to get. The current (no dimmer) layout is on the scheme above and what I am trying to get is on the lower part of the drawing.

Looks fine to me..

Question - do you have enough room to place fibaro switch close/inside the lamp holder? That way you'll have access to neutral wire

It wont work with dimmer 2,. In your case with no neutral, your pushbuttons need to switch between (sx+ N )terminals and s1, you would need another wire between the first and last wall box to do that.

You can get it to work without more wires if that is not possible but you need to use more switch components 

 

As Jamie says you need  to switch sx+ and N on the dimmer 2. To make that work add another device that takes the switched input that has dry connection to switch the dimmer sx+ and N.

 

It works but you need to want it.

@robmac I want it to work, but wont that relay need I neutral?

Got me I missed that.

 

How are the wires routed.  Possibly there is a way to install modules at the light fitting?

I’ve  seen this question asked  so many times .

We generally wire 3 way lighting differently here with the feed including neutral and the load both coming back to the same wall box.

Then a 3 core strap wire off looping to the remote switches.

So I don’t have to deal with this problem
