Can you have two dimmer switches on same circuit?
Also asked, can you have 2 dimmer switches for 1 Light?
Dimmers come in two basic wiring configurations: standard single-pole dimmers and three-way dimmers. If only one switch controls the light, purchase a single-pole dimmer. If two switches control a single light or a group of lights, you will need a three-way dimmer.
Additionally, can you leave a dimmer switch on all night? 1 Answer. There shouldn't be any dangers if you use a dimmer that's designed for LED lights. There are different types of dimmers for different types of lights. In that case, it's bad to keep it on in a dimmed state for a long period of time since it generates a lot of waste heat.
Just so, can you put a dimmer switch on a 3 way switch?
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. In this setup, the light level is controlled from a single location, whichever light switch you replace with the dimmer switch.
Do they make a 4 way dimmer switch?
Anyway, in a 4-way circuit (or more-way), you can replace either 3-way on/off switch (which will either be the first or last switch) with a 3-way dimmer. If you can find a 4-way dimmer switch, you could replace any 4-way switch in a multi-way circuit with it. Otherwise, it's either got to be the first or last switch.
