    Hi all, I’m trying to work out which dimmers I need for a hall and landing, the landing being two way switched from the hall.

    Hall will be a 2 gang, landing will be a single gang. The second gang of the hall will be the landing two way.
    Getting a bit confused with some of the information, for example the Megaman site shows the W455 as a master/slave, but refers to each gang as Master1/Master2 in the images?

    I think I need a W420 for the hall and a W450 for the landing. I’m assuming that both gangs of the W420 are master gangs.
    Another alternative was a W455 downstairs and a W400 upstairs paired with the slave gang of the W455.

    The easiest way to think of this, is to know that a single relay can have multiple switches linked to it. Which is why the term master 1 and master 2 are appropriate.
    You can link both switches to the landing light relay or even a third if you wish.
