    Yes an od question.
    I want to wiring lights in a room that has 4 doors into it so I need to be able to have multiple switching with 4 switches.
    Is there a simple circuit for this or will it be down to an electronic controller?
    I would prefer if it could be done with just the wiring.
    Many thanks to anyone who can solve this problem for me.

    Regards Merseybob

    it is simple, you use two-way switches and intermediate switches.
