With an electrician


there are too many ways to wire a three way switch circuit, to guess at, and they are not all compatible if the ends are wired differently, a sparky has the tester to be able to tie the third switch in.

How to wire, 2 pole 20 amp switch to 2 outside lights

Hire an electrician. Outside lights on house?? 20amp sounds like a breaker, not just a switch, otherwise why do you need a 20 amp switch for 2 outside lights? If you insist on doing it yourself be sure breaker you are working with is off. You need to know what you are doing. The question you ask says to me you don't know what you're doing. Electricity can Kill.

Your switch has 2 wires, and 2 brass screws, and new switch will have same.
Connect either wire to new switch.
Connect bare ground wire to green screw.
Turn power off, remove screws that hold switch into box, pull out switch, take photo of wiring, install new switch.
If wires are pushed into back of switch, then use small screwdriver and push into slot to release wire.

The lights sensors are not the problem.

Garage door will reverse direction automatically if it contacts the hood of your car or a bicycle. Your garage door is coming too far down, impacting the concrete, and then reversing.

The fix is simple.

You need to adjust the tripper switch just above the garage door. When the door is closing, it trips a little lever that's attached to the center rail. It's just a little flipper with 2 wires connected to it.

Move this flipper switch back tower the closer mechanism about 3 inches >>> try garage door again >> and then adjust location of flipper until garage door works just right.

How do I uninstall my garage door sensors. They continue to give me problems, it acts like there is something in front of the sensor and prevents the door from closing.

When you say sensors, are you talking about the photo-eye that checks if obstruction is in path of garage door?

1) You can buy sensors for $20-30. They seem generic

2) The new openers may be set up so by-pass is not an option.
Solution: In that case, you can move sensors above the garage door and put them face to face to see if that helps.

3) The way the sensors work is this. One side produces beam of light. Other side receives light. The receiver keeps a circuit closed at all times when light is received. If no light, then the circuit opens up and an electronic part interprets the lack of signal and turns off opener.

Solution: one side produces light. It does not have a switch. The other side has the switch. You can disconnect (or cut) a wire see which side has the light. The other side has the switch ... cut the 2 wires on the side with a switch, cap them off, and then see if opener works. Next twist the 2 wires together and see if opener works.

4) Fall-back position: Mark your wires and you can put it back the way it was.

I am trying to wire a double toggle switch one would work an outside light and the other the garage light. help!!!!

I can probably help you, but I need more info. Are you replacing a single switch that operated both of these lights together? Do you have 3 black wires and three white wires in the box now? Are the 3 white wires all connected together? Were 2 of the black wires connected to one terminal of the old switch, and 1 black wire connected to another terminal of the switch? ----- I'm doing lots of guessing here so that you understand the kind of info I need.

You will have to have access to the outside keypad and the motor head. Make sure there is a new battery in the keypad. Press the 3 -6-enter buttons at the same time to erase. Then press 357-prog, then press the 4 digit code-prog. Then go up to the motor unit and press the learn button. Go back to the keypad and press the 4 digit code followed by the up/down button, press the up/down button 2-3 more times and the door should move. If you have a black keypad this will not work, ask again with this info if needed. Thanks BB

Putting outside lamps on exterior on timer

why not connevct them up to a movement sensor, that way they come on when you make a movement near them. So they dont fire off when cats or birds fly by make sure you set them to close to your height. Then you can see your way to the shed turn the lighjt on that you can now see where the switch is and then turn it back off when you leave. Most of these sensor lights can be set toa timed on period

cheap and easy to install

Household wiring

There are 2 3way switches. Usually one end has a wire going to the light, and the other end 3 way switch has the always on power coming in. Between the two switches are 2-wire travellers.

On the actual 3way switches;
2 screws are the same color and the 2-wire travellers go on these. The other screw is a different color -usually black. This screw gets the power on one end, and the switch leg to the light at the other end.
