They will only work together if you have a 3 core between them - red, yellow and blue
Hi, so how do I wire them up?, do I put the black LI and the red L2 into one switch only together?
You will have to leave them as one, or run a 3 core from one light to the other and treat it as a slave by wiring the lamp into the LN&E that feed the other lamp
Or run a blue red and yellow between the 2 switches
Are you saying that they are both back to the same patress on a double dimmer switch?
So JUST TO BE SURE, I PUT BOTH THE BLACKS TOGETHER IN L1 AND BOTH THE REDS TOGEHTER IN L2 WITH A SINGLE SWITCH ONLY, WOULD A DIMMER BE OK?, THANKS
They are both wired to the same patress, I thought it was a switch at either end of the room?
THEY ARE BOTH WIRED INTO A DOUBLE DIMMER SWITCH, 2 GANG DIMMER,
OK, just wire as you said - can you confirm the number of bulbs and wattages to confirm the dimmer can cope with both sets?
8 BULBS IN EACH LIGHT, EACH BULB 28 W,
I DO NOT MIND IF I CANNOT USE A DIMMER
A switch will work as stated too.
SO JUST USE A SINGLE SWITCH OR DIMMER, MANY THANKS, MIKE
224Watts for each light is why they have used 2 dimmers - a 500W dimmer will be expensive
Single switch would be best
