There are 3 basic types of light buttons. The first is a basic, single light button.
The easiest way for three-way buttons is to put the light in between both buttons. You have to look closely at an electric wiring layout to understand.
The cord ought to be 12.2 Romex right approximately the first button, after that run 12.3 Romex to the light and after that on the second button. The 12.3 Romex has an added cord called a vacationer (generally red), which is required for 3-way buttons.
At the first button, the 12.2 Romex from the circuit run gets in all-time low of the button box and the warm (black) cord connects down right terminal on the button.
The 12.3 Romex gets in via the top of the button box. The warm traveler (red) cord connects to top left terminal on the button. The black (warm) cord connects to the top right terminal on the button.
The 12.3 neutral (white) cord connects directly to the 12.2 neutral cord with cord nuts and the copper ground cords are additionally attached together with cord nuts. At the light box, you should have 2 ends of 12.3 Romex socializing. One end comes from the first button the various other end comes from the second button.
Attach the copper ground cords together with a cord nut to get them out of the way, and after that attach the 2 red traveler cords together with a cord nut.
Currently locate the black cord coming from the white cord and the first box coming from the second box and attach them together with cord nuts. It is usual technique for 3 and 4-way buttons.
Currently, at the second button, you will certainly attach the red traveler cord to the top left terminal. The white, cord currently classified as black with tape, connects to the upper right terminal. The black cord will certainly attach to the lower right terminal screw. The copper cord will certainly attach to package if it's a steel box or the environment-friendly ground screw on the button if package is plastic.
The light box should currently have a black cord and a white cord protruding which is exactly what you will certainly need to attach the light to. The warm traveler (red) cord connects to top left terminal on the button. The black (warm) cord connects to the top right terminal on the button.
Currently, at the second button, you will certainly attach the red traveler cord to the top left terminal. The copper cord will certainly attach to the box if it's a steel box or the environment-friendly ground screw on the button if the box is plastic.
