To control a single light from two locations it is necessary to have two three way switches wired together to switch the light you will need 12 3 with ground romex running between the switches the bare copper ground wire is not shown in this diagram but it would connect to the green screw on the switch. Wiring two switches to one light fixture adds convenience to any room with two entryways also known as three way switching the job calls for a pair of special three way switches and an appropriate length of 14 3 conductor cable to join the switches together. Wiring a three way light switch wiring of 3 way light switches is certainly more complicated than that of the more common single pole switch but you can figure it out if you follow our 3 way switch wiring diagram with a pair of 3 way switches either switch can make or break the connection that completes the circuit to the light. It is not uncommon for a circuit to be configured so that two wall switches in a single double gang box control two different light fixtures the essence of the wiring configuration is for one hot feed wire entering the switch box to be split so that it feeds both switches which in turn feed hot wires in cables that lead out to two separate light fixtures. Wiring for two light switches electrical question how do i take those two wires and feed two switches to have separate control for two switches i am adding an outside light to my 1941 house i put in a two gang box for two switches i have two wires leading to the gang box one white and one black
