Advice if poss please.
I`ve converted our kitchen and dining rooms into one kitchen/diner and now I want to have the two room lights operated from 2 double switches, (one at each of the entrance's to the room).
We may want to use either the kitchen half or dining half of the room at any one time so I want to be able to switch on one or both of the lights from either switch when entering the room from either end (there is an entrance at each end).
The wiring is still in place for the two room lights and switches as they were, with the original single switch at each end of the room.
Can anyone advise on how I wire this circuit up?
Any advice welcomed.
Thanks, Mike

just run two runs of 3+E cable between the switchpositions and treat it as two completely seperate two way swithing setups.

diagrams on how to do two way switching can be found in the for reference thread.
