I have an existing ceiling light that is on a cathedral ceiling and is controlled by two switches. I am planning to install a ceiling fan with a light in its place. Ideally I would like to have the light controlled separately from the fan. I don't need the light to be dimmable or the speed of the fan to be adjustable (that is controlled with a pull chain). I found a Hunter switch that can do this, but what I am wondering is if they can be installed in a two way spot? Do I use two of them, one at each switch? I have looked at the Hunter website and tried to find a spec sheet, but I couldn't find anything. Anybody know? Thanks for the help.
Without looking at a spec sheet to confirm, I doubt that this switch can be put in two locations for the same load (3-way switch). I also suspect that you don't have the necessary conductors to provide individual control over light separate from fan. To know for sure, one would have to inspect the wiring.
Perhaps the hunter switch to which you refer is one of those types that have the reciever module in the light box? If so, I believe you will have success with two of those switches in each location. You may have to re-purpose a couple of your existing 3-way wires, and you will not need the second reciever. I have done this and had no trouble.
Perhaps a part number for your switch will help make a more definitive answer.
