Electrical Question from Dave about Light Switch Wiring
Background: Dave, a Handyman from Wake forest NC

Question: Is there a 4 way switch with dimmer? I have a circuit with two 3 way switches and one 4 way and I wanted to be able to dim the lights from the 4 way.Thanks

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Dave. There are a few options for 4-way dimmer switching, one of which is very affordable and is very reliable. The Leviton Viza+ Collection  Series will enable you to control lighting from up to 10 locations simply by installing a Main Unit which which works with the other Remote Switches. The Leviton VP00R-10 and TT00R-10 allow light fixture dimming and ceiling fan speed control capabilities as well. These switches must be installed as a matching group and are not compatible with other switches. Pay close attention to the wiring instructions which come with the Leviton Viza lighting controls.

As With All Electrical Wiring Projects, a Word of Warning: THESE DEVICES ARE TO BE INSTALLED AND/OR USED IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPROPRIATE ELECTRICAL CODES AND REGULATIONS. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT ANY PART OF THE INSTRUCTIONS, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
