    Hi there,

    Here's a little problem which I hope has an obvious answer.

    I have a 3 gang light switch: two of the switches individually control 2 separate ceiling light circuits in the sitting room; the third switch operates the cellar lights (great arrangement o_O). All the circuits are 1 way.

    I want to replace the three gang switch with a 2 gang (one dimmer, one on/off) switch. I would like the dimmer to operate all the ceiling lights at once, and the on/off to control the cellar lights.

    Question is can I wire both light circuits to the dimmer so they operate together?

    Thanks,

    Marc.

    Yes you can.
    Make sure that the lamps are dimmer-able and that the dimmer is compatible with them.
