Hi everyone!

Got somewhat confused with an energenie master/slave switch set today.
The downstairs switch has (I’m sure I don’t need to say but will just in case):
Constant live
L1 (switch)
L2 (switch)
L2 (switch)
This switches on a hall light and stair light.
The upstairs switch is wired as usual - common and switch lives.

The energenie master switch doesn’t seem to make much sense - it uses a slave connection, live, l1, lx and l2

The slave switch uses a slave connection, and also has a line in and out.

The instructions are not particularly clear to follow and wonder if anyone could help? I have no problem getting a qualified electrician to do it, though I’d still like to know how ;)

Hi bud,you are going to struggle,to get a step by step,on this one,as there are other factors to consider,besides the obvious...

What is the depth of the backbox receptacle? if that is insufficient,the rest may have to wait:)

Hi Peg!

I noticed that the switch was waaay deeper than the back box, so have dutifully dug out and installed a deeper one ;)

Glad it isn’t just me, all said!
