I am pretty new to DIY so please go easy on me. I have a room wit
light switches at either end of the room controlling the same light.
Is it possible to add a dimmer switch to one or both and how.
You could use a 2 way dimmer switch together with a 2 way non dimmer
switch, but that might be inconvenient.
There are some dimmer switches which have master/slave options so you
can dim from any switch
Make sure you feel up to the job before starting, or get a qualified
sparky in letting them know this is the type of dimmer you want ...
If you get the type that is push on/off, these invariably have a two way
switch. So can be used to replace *one* of the switches. Obviously, leave
it dimmed and it will only switch on and off at this level from the other
switch. But most don't dim out completely so this should be ok.
There are some two way dimmers available, but they are pretty costly.
Don't know much about them other than that.
