Staircase Lighting Wiring Diagram | 2-Way Light Switch Diagram

As an electrical website owner, it’s my responsibility to write about electrical technology. In this post, I am writing about two way light switch diagram Or staircase lighting wiring diagram. Today I design a diagram about staircase wiring diagram or lighting diagram. In this type of wiring, we control a lamp or light bulb from two places using two-way switches. I already published an explanation guide about the two-way switches and their uses, you can find it by using the below link.
How to wire a 2-way switch?

Why Two way light switch wiring is important in Staircase circuit

Staircase circuit connection wiring is different from a one-way control light switch and we did not use one-way switches in this connection because we need to control or switch off/on the lamp from both places top and down. For that, we control the lamp from two places using two-way switches. In short this connection, we use to save energy and to control or switch lamps / light bulbs from both places.

How Two-way control light bulb connection is works

In this wiring connection, we use two-way switches in which we have three terminals, in these terminals one is common and two are for connection. we can use it for many connections using different connection methods. For example, we use it to change the flow of current positive to negative etc. However, for a better understanding of two-way switches open the below link.

How To Control a Lamp / Light bulb from two places using 2-way switches

The circuit of controlling the lamp from a two-way switch is simple, in this connection we use two-way switches, for this first of all connect the neutral wire to the lamp or bulb socket and then connect the phase or Line wire to the common terminal of the first two-way switch, they do connection between the other terminals of first and 2nd switch terminals with one another as shown in below diagram. In last connect a wire between the lamp socket’s 2nd terminal and 2nd switch common terminal as shown below image plus diagram.

I hope you learn something from this two-way light switch diagram, and I hope to know you understood this circuit diagram. Now if you have any questions or suggestions regarding this then type your message in below comment section.
However, soon I write an article about this type of wire but with 3 different methods and diagrams.
