Deako Switches are single-pole by default. To use them in 3-way or 4-way circuits, follow the steps below.
3-way and 4-way linking is only required for Deako Smart Switches and Dimmer Switches.
Before you get started...
How do I know if I have a 3-way or 4-way?
If there is one switch that controls the light(s), you have a single-pole circuit. If you have single-pole circuit, 3-way & 4-way linking is not required.
If there are two switches that controls the light(s), you have a 3-way circuit.
If there are more than two switches that control the light(s), you have a 4-way circuit.
Installing smart dimmers
If you are installing Deako Smart Dimmers in a 3-way or 4-way circuit, Smart Dimmers must only be installed at the load location of the circuit.
3-Way & 4-Way Linking
1. Press & hold a switch
Press and hold one of the switches in the circuit until the switch flashes.
If nothing happens, try the next switch in the circuit (the switch you just tried is likely not powered).
2. Tap the 1 icon
To put the switch into linking mode, tap the 1 icon (the icon will begin flashing)
3. Repeat steps 1-2 for each switch
Repeat steps 2-3 for each switch in the circuit.
The 1 icon must be flashing on every switch in the circuit before continuing to the next step.
4. Tap the 2 icon
- Confirm that the 1 icon is flashing on every switch in the circuit.
- Once confirmed, tap the 2 icon on the switch in the load location (How to Identify Line & Load Locations)
- Wait for all switches in the circuit to stop flashing. The switches may restart multiple times (this is normal). Once they have stopped, 3-way & 4-way setup is complete.
If switches continue flashing for more than one minute, there might be a problem.
To exit linking mode, press and hold the switch for 6 seconds. Then before retrying, factory reset each switch in the circuit (How to factory reset a Deako Switch).
Now that your 3-way or 4-way circuit it set up, it can be paired to your phone using the Deako App. Learn more...
