    Hi guys

    looking for help if possible, I have a hall stairs landing in my house with the following set up

    hallway
    - 4 gang switch (GF shower, 2 x outside lights, hallway light)
    - 1 gang switch (hallway light)
    - 1 gang switch (Landing light)

    Landing
    - 2 gang switch (hallway light, landing light)

    The landing light is wired up two way whilst the hallway is wired up 3 way. I have installed a 4 gang LRF dimmer to hallway and wanted to install a 2 way dimmer to landing. what is the best way to do this?

    If I have understood you correctly, your requirements would be, you can have either 200 series (original switches designed for filament lamps) or 400 series (later version designed more specifically for LED lamps, obviously you will need to ensure all the lamps on the circuits meet the load requirements and are dimmamble for it to work, and when wiring up the two way ensuring you get the wiring correct as you can damage the switches if you put a load on the 2 way switching circuit

    If you look on ebay LWRF have their own outlet and sometimes sell items cheaper especially the 200 series

    Surely the Landing should have a master switch, you have it wired up to two slaves?

    Node Zero you are correct
    The hallway 1 gang switch for the landing should be a LW 1 gang master
