    I've got a question about how a particular wiring for light switches works. The kind of light switch that involves two or more switches on different sides of a room that turn on/off the same light.

    How the hell do those work? Anyone have a schematic? I'm assuming the switches in those are not on/off switches but actually a/b switches.
     
  2. From what I know, they are two on/off swtiches wired separately to the same fixture. If they worked as an A/B swtich, you'd have to have one off, and one on, meaning the light would always be on.
