Electrical Question from Solo about Classroom Electrical Topic
[ad#block]Question: How can I draw the complete lay out wiring diagram of two lamps connected in parallel controlled from five switch locations?

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Solo. This can be easily done using the 4-way switch wiring diagram, placing three 4-way switches between two 3-way switches and wire two fixtures instead of one. Fully explained wiring instructions and wiring diagrams can be found here in the 4-way switch area here in this website.
Just click the 4-way wiring diagrams link below.
