I am going to piggy back on this since I have a similar question. How do you wire three switches and one light.

gsiciliano, to use three switches to control a light you need two 3 way switches and one four way switch. The 4 way switch goes electrically between the two 3 ways, and the travelers get connected to it.

gsiciliano, I split off your question into its own thread, because, other than the fact that both questions involved switches, your question has no other similarities with the discussion in the other thread, and it would be impossible to deal with both questions in the same thread.

Sorry Bob, this makes your answer contain some unrelated answers, but life's a compromise.
