    3-Way LIghting Switch

    Is it possible to replace one 3-way switch with one Insteon on/off switch and leave the other non-Insteon in place? I want to link the one Insteon switch to a 6-button keypad.

    Are the original switches a mechanical type and not Insteon?
    You can't have a mechanical switch and Insteon module linked to each other.
    You need both Insteon. You cap off the module output of the one not connected to the load and cross link them to each other.

      To convert a 3-way switch to single pole, one of the traveler wires is removed from the switch. In order for a 3-way switch to function as a single pole, the wires need to be connected to the common and one of the traveler terminals. It will not work if the wires are connected to the two traveler terminals. You cannot simply replace a one switch in a multi-switch circuit with insteon, leaving the others in place. You MAY be able to rewire the circuit to have a single insteon switch and no others, but this would depend on how the circuit is wired. MyCCPay Log In

        You can't just replace one switch in a circuit with an Insteon switch and leave the others alone. You MAY be able to rewire the circuit so that you only have one Insteon switch and none of the others. This would depend on how the circuit is wired. If power is added at the fixture, you would need to add either more wires between the fixture and the switch box or an additional Insteon device (like a micro module) at the fixture. In either case, you will need to use some conductors in different ways. the backrooms
