  • Possible to pair two dimmer switch to act like a 3 way switch?

    I have a little situation where running a new wire is not possible.

    My bathroom with 2 separate things sharing one wire, the lights and the vent fan. Long story short, I want to be able to dim the lights but the problem is it'll also affect the vent fan since they are sharing one line.

    The solution is to use 2 dimmers and 1 on/off switch. One dimmer on the wall and a dimmer and the on/off switch at the split.

    Getting the wall switch to toggle both to turn on/off is no issue with the help of a creative event. However, I'd like to be able to dim the lights from the wall switch. Can I associate the two dimmers to respond to each other as one? If I dim one the other dim etc..?

    The wall switch will carry no load, it'll just be an used to control the other two.

    I'm having a hard time conceptualizing how you have this wired. However see if this video on how to sync two dimmers might be helpful.
