Copy following link for wiring 3-way switches (where 2 switches control same lights)
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-switches.html#3-way

Each 3-way switch has 3 screws (plug green ground screw)
Two screws are 1 color usually brass, and other screw is different color usually dark.
The dark screw is common screw.

There are two basic wiring diagrams: Line-side/Load-side with neutral wire. And Line-side/Load-side without neutral wire.
Open link above and scroll down to see both wiring diagrams.

Replaced a ceiling fan controlled by 2 wall switches that had red, black and white wires. The FanimationPalisade switch has 2 black wires and a ground wire. How can I connect and keep 3 way operation?


You can't because the new controller is not Two Way which is like the switches you have at the top and bottom of stairs. In my experience there is no such thing as a 3 way switch, only one way and two way.

On a one way switch, you have one wire in and one wire out plus ground. On a two way you have an extra bridge connection which completes the circuit from the other end.

This shows the circuit in relation to stair lights, but your fan circuit is the same.

Install wiring


If you wish to replace the 3 way switch with a dimmer you have to buy a special 3 way dimmer. 3 way switches are for the top and bottom of a staircase or two ends of a hallway to have 2 switches control one light or lights, so if you buy a dimmer for one end it would be good to buy one for the other. I almost understand visually where all those wires go in your description but a photograph would have been better. A better description of which switch you wanted to replace as well.

How to wire a two way switch for a staircase


Copy following link for 3-way switch wiring diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-switches.html#3-way

Add a comment and say if you are adding a 3-way switch to existing single-pole switch.
You need 3 wires running to new 3-way switch.

I have a stairs with a switch and a bulb on each floor and i need to replace them with a wall pir sensor on each floor i need the wiring diagram


I answer questions for free.
I know electrical wiring.
I am unsure about a few things in your question.
Are you wanting to know how to wire a product you purchased?
Are looking for a wiring diagram to see if you can do what your want?

1) Is your circuit a 3-way circuit with 2 switches controlling both lights?
2) Or are there 2 different circuits where each switch controls one light?

Here is a Leviton manual with wiring for occupancy sensors:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Leviton-IPP0R-1LW.pdf
If you want sensors to replace 3-way switches, you need a control sensor and a remote sensor.

3 way switch diagrams


Three way switch diagram: Three-way switch has 3 screws

ad45624.jpg

Before replacing old 3-way switch, mark the wire connected to dark-colored screw
Connect that wire to dark-colored screw on new switch.

If you are confused which wire goes to dark-colored screw
Mark the 2 black wires and the red wire.
You are not going to do anything with the white wire.
Connect blacks and red to any screw, turn on power, and try BOTH switches
Keep trying until correct combination is discovered
Both switches must work in all possible up-down positions before wiring is correct
Incorrect wiring will not blow circuit breaker, the circuit just doesn't work until wires are right.

I know the circuit diagram but how do you


If the power originates at the location of the light (or other item being switched) you need a 3-core cable from there to to each switch location.
If the power originates at one of the switch locations you need a 2-core cable from there to the fixture and a 3-core cable to the other switch location. (If the cable to the second switch location is routed through the junction box at the fixture then you only need 4 cores from the first switch to the junction box--three switch wires and the neutral wire for the fixture.)
In all cases described above the ground (earth) wire is separate and not included in the count.
