My split level stairwell lights have 3 switches controlling it.
The switch at the top of the stairs is a 3-way Leviton 6674 dimmer.
The switch at the bottom of the stairs is a 4-way switch.
The switch at the middle landing is a 3-way dead-end switch.
So, this 4-way dead-end circuit goes:
I want to replace the 4-way switch at the bottom of the stairs (the middle of the circuit) with an Occupancy Sensor.
At first I started this project with a single MS-OPS5MH-WH switch.
The OPS5 instructions do not mention "4-way", so I did some research and found this:
That gave me a link to this:
The stackexchange posting and PDF made me think the OPS5 probably would not work.
I wired it up anyway, per the PDF, and nothing blew smoke, but the switches don't turn on the lights as expected (similar to the stackexchange posting).
I returned the OPS5M and now have a MSCL-OP153MH-WH and two MA-RR companion dimmers.
All wiring instructions assume a standard/basic 4-way circuit.
I am working with a 4-way dead-end circuit.
So, a few questions:
1) Is there any difference when wiring these in to a standard vs a dead-end 4-way circuit?
2) Can the MSCL-OP153 be used as the 4-way dimmer/switch in a 4-way dead-end circuit?
3) Can the MA-RR be used as the 3-way dead-end dimmer/switch?
4) If yes to both, is there any thing trick to wiring this up?
