Please help me find a special dimmer switch
 
I'm trying to find a 500 watt dimmer switch with two interruptors with the dimmer in the middle. Does anyone know where I would find one? Would Home Depot have something like this?

Thanks in advance for your help...Dan

I may be confused by the terminology, but it sounds to me like you want to be able to control lighting from three locations, one being a dimmer switch.

If I am correct, this can be done with a 3-way switch, a 3-way dimmer, and a 4-way switch. The issue I imagine you may have is that wires called travelers must interconnect the 3 devices. If your wiring is in conduit and all three locations are piped together, this is fairly simple. If not, post further information.

If i am reading correct you will need to take the single box out and put in a 2 gang cut in box then put 2 dimmers in http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/n.../cn-bh234r.jpg
