One bulb - Two switches

Question

Hi everybody.

 

I think my question is very simple, and I don't know the exact word in english to describe that, but I try to explain.

 

In one room, I have one bulb wich can be on/off with two switches indistinctly. So if I want to domotize this, Do I need two Fibaro single switch (one in every switch) or with one Fibaro switch placed into one switch is enough and both interruptors will still control the bulb?

 

In spanish is "Tener dos interruptores conmutados", but I don't know how to explain this in english, But I think you are very smart and understand me very easily :-)

Hi. If you have a live wire in the switch box which goes to the bulb you can use just one. If no separate live wire - you need two and then associate them.

    i gues you can do this with a relais module (version 1) at the light bulb.

     

    Ok, I'll try with Fibaro switch and relay

     

    Thank you
