    It's now 8th January and you promised instructions "during December 2017" (see above). Please can you update this.

    This needs a bit more information.

    I have the first switch in without a problem, but the wiring of the 2nd switch is confusing. I can't seem to get it working without one of the switches losing power.

    Figured it out. 

    Wire the first switch in the series as normal.

    The 2nd switch, wire the first half as normal.

    The trick comes with wiring the 2nd half which feeds off the primary switch. Leave the live empty and put the 2 wires into the neutral slot.

    I can’t seem to get my gen 2 light switches to work on an existing two way circuit, one switch will work however the second switch has no power feed, can anyone help? Three wires in each back box instructions say live in and live out what happens to the third wire?

    please help as I’m trying to do this for my son who is rapidly going blind
