Help finding wall switch


Does anyone make a 3 function 2 gang switch that is dimmable? I found 3 function rocker switches but non that are dimmable. This is an example of all I found http://www.homedepot.com/p/Leviton-D...-0WS/100356847

I don't know how it would be configured to dim, physically. Short answer, unless someone can come up with it, no.

Re: Help finding wall switch


would create too much heat for a single gang box. Ive never seen one, anyway... are you dimming 3 different lights? or what are the functions?

I was looking to be able to control 3 different lights and dim each from a switch similar to the one I posted

Re: Help finding wall switch


I've never even seen a double switch like what you are looking for to say nothing about what was 3 of them. As mentioned earlier 1 of the major issue would be the heat build up inside of the box.

I don't think you can do it.

Re: Help finding wall switch


You might be able to do it with a few of these and that switch but you'd still have box space issue. Maybe switch the existing box to a 2 or 3 gang with a mud ring? That's a lot of extra work, and definitely not cheap though http://aeotec.com/z-wave-light-dimmer-switch
