What is a two way switch

Modified on Fri, 15 Sep 2023 at 12:33 PM


A 2-way switch is the most common type of light switch. This is used when you have a light which you need to control from two different locations. An example of this could be a hallway light which you need to control from both the ground floor and the second floor.
