Find out how to Wire A 3-Way Decora Rocker Switch
Decora is the lighting device brand line manufactured and distributed by Leviton Manufacturing. Differing from a standard toggle switch by the shape and style, the Decora switch is more modern and less obtrusive when installed in the wall. The three-way Decora rocker switch operates a light fixture from two different locations, providing you with a convenient way of turning on the lights. For a 3-way circuit to operate correctly, you must have two three-way switches installed on opposite ends of the circuit. The commonest approach to wire a three-way Decora rocker switch begins with the ability supply located inside the first switch box on the circuit.
Things You’ll Need
Phillips or slotted screwdriver
2 Three-way Decora rocker switches
2 Single gang rocker switch plate covers
Turn off the circuit breaker inside the main service panel that provides electricity to the three-way switch circuit.
Look inside the primary three-way switch box on the circuit and identify the two sets of cables. The first set of cables includes a black, white and bare copper wire. The second set of cables includes a black, white, red and bare copper wire.
Connect the white wire from the primary set of cables to the white wire from the second set of cables by twisting a wire connector onto both wires. Repeat the connection for the bare copper wire from the primary set of cables and the bare copper wire from the second set of cables. Push both sets to the back of the three-way switch box.
Wrap the black wire from the first set of cables around the common screw on the three-way Decora rocker switch. The screw will probably be labeled as “COM” on the back of the three-way switch.
Wrap the black wire from the second set of cables around the screw on the left side of the switch. Wrap the red wire from the second set of cables across the remaining screw on the right side of the three-way Decora rocker switch.
Attach the rocker switch to the three-way switch box at the highest and the bottom of the switch and cover with a single gang rocker switch plate cover.
Look inside the second three-way switch box and identify the wires inside. This cable set features a black, red, bare copper and white wire wrapped in black electrical tape.
