    Both switches in an INSTEON 3-way configuration are identical. Only one is connected to the load. The other device is linked to the first using hardware such as the Hub or ISY or software such as HouseLinc or by pressing a button or paddle on the device itself.

Stu was a huge fan of Insteon and a huge presence on both the Smarthome and Insteon forums, helping thousands of us along the way (he had nearly 20,000 posts to his name). We thank him for his contributions, dedication, and passion for making the Smart Home a reality. He will truly be missed.

      After you pick your model switch. You can download its Full Users Manual from the sales page. It will show how to use it in a 3way setup. As both need a Line and Neutral power connection.
      The 2474 two wire dimmer. That does not use a Neutral power connection and steals power through the load. Is not 3way compatible.
