Hi all, not sure whether this is in the right place or even the right forum as I'm not an electrician but hopefully someone can help.

I have just bought a Varilight 3 gang remote dimmer to put in my house and unsure how to wire it up. My current switch is just a single dimmer running the main room lights, there are 2 lots of 1mm twin and earth with 1 red wire going to the 'wavy line' (is this the switch)? and another 2 red wires going to L2. L1 has no wires in it and the 2 neutrals are just connected together and blanked off with the earths going to the box.

Now I have installed some spotlights and have another 2 1mm twin and earth running into the same box. I would like all 3 sets (main room lights and 2 sets of spots) to be independantly dimmable via the 3 gang dimmer so how do I go about this. The new dimmer has 3 boxes with the 'wavy line', slave, and live connections on each. Any help would be appreciated.

many thanks in advance.
