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.
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.
