    Hi this is my first post on here.

    I am trying to replace an existing 2 gang 2 way switch.

    Currently one switch just controls the light in the porch and works one way, the other switch controls the hall light 2 way along with another switch at the other end of the hall.

    The current switch has 3 terminals for each switch A1, A2 & COM A and B1, B2 and COM B.

    The new switch has 4 terminals for each switch COM, 1 WAY, 2 WAY and LOOP.

    Is it simple to tell me which terminals on the old switch are the same on the new one?

    I can give details as to what colour cables are where on each if needed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ignore LOOP

    COM = COM
    A1 = 1 way
    A2 = 2 way

    Remember the switches are split by a vertical line in the middle, NOT a horizontal one
