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+ CollectionÂ 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.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
