Electrical Question from George about wiring 3 Way Switches and using a Remote Control
Background: George, a Homeowner from Chicago IL
Additional Comments: Seems pretty useful.
Thanks for your electrical question George. There is much that is not known about your exact wiring configuration and what you have been working on. So I would suggest that you consider all the steps that you have taken to get where you are right now. What has been added or changed. What worked before and what was installed. This will be a process of identification and troubleshooting in order to discover what may be wrong. It could be something very simple. Understand that every component most likely exists right now, you just need to understand how it all works together. Start from point A and move to Point B. Begin with the power source and move towards the device, what are the components or functions that are needed to complete the circuit.
