Can I put a dimmer on a three way switch?

With a standard single-pole dimmer, a single switch controls the light. With a three-way dimmer, you can control a light with two switches. You will need a three-way dimmer and a three-way switch. This lets you dim from one location and turn the lights on and off from another.Click to see full answer. Likewise, people ask, can you have two dimmers on a 3 way switch?If you are switching from two locations, you also need to use 3-way switches for both the plain switches and dimmers (many dimmers are 3-way compatible). You can only have one dimmer per group. You can put the dimmer at either location, but not both locations.Furthermore, what is the difference between a 2 way and 3 way light switch? A two-way switch (2 connections to the switch, not including ground)turns lights on or off from 1 location only. A three-way switch (3 connections to the switch, not including ground) can turn lights on or off from 2 locations. Also question is, can I put a dimmer on a light with 3 switches? When using a 3-way dimmer switch, you should only have one dimmer on the circuit. The other switches (you can have more than one) must be on-off switches only. The other light switches turn the lights off and on to the level set by the dimmer.Can you have a dimmer on a 2 way switch?Our standard dimmers are recommended for mains voltage lighting only. If you have a 2-way circuit (where the same lights are controlled by two switches) you must choose a push-on/push-off dimmer and replace one of the switches with that dimmer. You can only use one push-on/push-off dimmer in a 2-way circuit.
