Hi:
 I am tryign to seutp my house wiht TP swiches. I have a few locations that are current 3 way switches but also need dimmable lights. I know that there are no plans for 3 way dimmable switch yet.

My question is can I use 1 Dimmable Switch for the main switch and then either a signgle switch for the other? 

If not, is there anyway to "change" the cirucit so it's not 3 Way anymore and just use the 1 dimmable switch?

Thanks.

Replace the 3way switch that is connected to the power source with the HS220.

Turn off power.

Connect white to white

Connect green to green(or bare copper)

Connect power source(line) to line

Connect both travelers to load

 

With this wiring it does not matter what position the other 3way switch is in.
