# Do Staircase Wiring Circuit With 3 Different Methods

Last time I published about a method of Staircase wiring and today’s post is also about this in my last post I shared only one method of staircase electrical wiring but today I am going to share with you a diagram with 3 different methods of staircase circuit wiring. This will help you very much and after that, you will do this circuit wiring with three different methods.
I always try to share and explain full diagrams for electrical students, Nowadays people become advanced, and electrical technology students try to find out electrical tutorials/diagrams online but they don’t understand every diagram. That’s why I design my diagrams simple and easy to understand.

## How to Do Staircase Wiring with 3 different methods?

In this diagram I showed 3 different methods of staircase wiring diagram, In this 2 way, light switch diagrams I use two-way switches to control a light bulb or lamp holder in 2 different places. In this connection, if a person switches the bottom switch of the stair and when he/she reached on top then if he switches the upper 2-way button the bulb will switch off.
And if a person wants to come from top to down then if he switches the top switch then the flow of the electron will start and the bulb will be energized and whenever he switches the down 2-way switch, the flow of electrons will stop due to open circuit and bulb will stop glowing.
The main reason for this circuit is to save electricity when we did not require lighting in stairs or controlling bulbs from both places. However, let’s explained again with the diagram.

### Explanation Guide of Staircase Wiring Circuit

This staircase wiring circuit can be done by 3 different methods with two-way switches, which is shown in the above diagrams, you can use one of these wiring methods for controlling a light bulb from 2 different places.
The importance of this staircase wiring circuit is to make lighting stairs at home but for a small time which time we needed and when we don’t use the stair then we can switch off the bulb easily.

In this circuit, as I tell above we can control or switch the bulb from both places upper and bottom. However, just take an example.

For example, we want to go from bottom to upper using stairs at home, and it’s night time and we needed lighting in the stairs. So when we switch the bottom switch, the bulb will be energized and glow up. When we reached to upper, and we want to switch off the lamp / light bulb then we can switch the bulb using the upper switch.
So if we want to come from the upper to the bottom, then we follow the same method, we will switch the upper switch, the bulb will glow up and when we reached to bottom then we can easily switch off the light bulb by using the bottom 2-way switch. In short, we can switch the On and Off lights in both places.

#### Message:

This is the first time on the internet that a website shares 3 different methods of staircase wiring diagrams or controlling a light bulb from two places. INSHALLAH soon we will make more helpful and simple diagrams which can be understood by anyone. Now if you have any problem facing or any questions regarding this post then you can ask me in the below comments section. Keep visiting ………..

i can not understand the difference between the first two circuit diagrams .. the only difference which i have understood is the difference in the bulb state .. in firsst one it is on and in second one it is off ..

generally in my home switches i have installed comprises of only two terminals not three terminals are there .. can u plz tell how to install it with two terminals each for a single switch .. ..

sir i can not understand how it works … three terminalss are still there we donot have three terminals in a switch so how it will work then…. problematic ..

Dear if you look the first diagram that i provide the current neutral to bulb and phase (line) to the switch. So the current flow through the switch and other switch is also on same direction then current flow also through the second switch and bulb is glow up. however if did not understand now then you can learn it in Urdu / Hindi by using the below link.

Dear staircase circuit can not be done using two terminals switches, In electrical wiring when a switch have only 2 terminals we called this single way or one way switch. And when a switch have 3 terminals that's called two way switch . So for controlling a light form 2 places you must buy 2 way switches from market.

Three terminals switch is called 2 way switch, in market you can easily buy. Just tell shop keeper that gave me two way switches. Or tell him that i want to buy it for staircase connection or wiring.

Dear if you are asking about the staircase or controlling a light bulb form two places using two terminals switches (one way switches) then it's not possible and you must buy a three terminals switch (two way switches) from market.
