There are three standard kinds of light buttons. The initial is a simple, solitary light switch. The second is a 3-way switch that manages one lights component from 2 locations. The 3rd is a 4-way switch that manages one lights component from three or even more locations.
The easiest method for three-way buttons is to position the light in between the two buttons. You need to look very closely at an electrical circuitry diagram to understand.
The cord should be 12.2 Romex right up to the initial switch, then run 12.3 Romex to the light and afterwards on the second switch. The 12.3 Romex has an extra wire called a traveler (normally red), which is necessary for 3-way buttons.
At the initial switch, the 12.2 Romex from the circuit run gets in the bottom of the switch box and also the warm (black) cord links down ideal terminal on the switch.
The 12.3 Romex gets in via the top of the switch box. The warm vacationer (red) wire links to leading left terminal on the switch. The black (warm) wire links to the leading ideal terminal on the switch.
The 12.3 neutral (white) wire links straight to the 12.2 neutral wire with wire nuts and also the copper ground cords are likewise attached together with wire nuts. At the light box, you should have 2 ends of 12.3 Romex hanging out. One end comes from the initial switch the various other end comes from the second switch.
Link the copper ground cords together with a wire nut to obtain them out of the method, and also then connect the 2 red vacationer cords together with a wire nut.
Now find the black wire originating from the initial box and also the white wire originating from the second box and also connect them together with wire nuts. Now, this is essential, you have to note each end of the white wire by covering it with black electrical tape. This implies you have actually made it a hot wire. This is a code demand! It prevails method for 3 and also 4-way buttons.
Now, at the second switch, you will connect the red vacationer wire to the leading left terminal. The white, wire currently identified as black with tape, links to the top ideal terminal. The black wire will connect to the lower ideal terminal screw. If it's a steel box or the green ground screw on the switch if the box is plastic, the copper wire will connect to the box.
The light box should currently have a white wire and also a black wire standing out which is what you will have to connect the light to. The warm vacationer (red) wire links to leading left terminal on the switch. The black (warm) wire links to the leading ideal terminal on the switch.
Now, at the second switch, you will connect the red vacationer wire to the leading left terminal. The copper wire will connect to the box if it's a steel box or the green ground screw on the switch if the box is plastic.
