  1. THEORY - THANK YOU! Sorry for taking a couple weeks to respond but I was traveling when you responded to my question and it wasn't until today that I was able to try your suggestion. The switch worked perfectly using the wiring you suggested. Surprising to me that the red lead in the house goes unused so that was throwing me off in all my attempts. Your help is greatly appreciated. Based on my reading, I understand that the 2-button keypad I installed in the second location will not operate the lights (like the switch does currently) until things are programmed and the keypad is "paired" with the switch. Can you confirm this is correct? The 2-button keypad lights up green and appears to be fine and just awaiting its programming. Thanks again. Greg
  2. Hi all, I'm sorry if this is another in line of 3-way questions but this had me stumped. I'm have 4 exterior garage sconce lights with cfl bulbs on a 3-way circuit with switch1/box1 inside the front door foyer and switch2/box2 in the garage. I'm trying to get these exterior lights onto a c4 switch and 2button keypad so I can time/dusk to dawn them. My task is complicated since each of my switch locations shares a double gang box with another sitch for another circuit. My issue; - the double gang box in the garage has one switch for the garage interior lights and one 3-way switch for the exterior lights. This 3-way switch had a single run of 14-3 attached to it with the Black to the common terminal and the white and red to the other terminals (including green to ground). - the double gang box in foyer has one switch for the inside hall chandelier and one 3-way switch for the exterior lights. This 3-way switch has two romex runs to it; a 14-3 and a 14-2. The 14-2 has the black run to the common terminal and the white tied together inside the switch box with the other whites (of both gang circuits). The 14-3 has its white and red wires attached to the switch and its black wire tied together inside the switch box with the other blacks of both gang circuits. My references to all terminations is with respect to the builder grade Leviton paddle switches. I'd greatly appreciate guidance on wiring the c4 switch and keypad. Thanks, Greg
