How do two switches control one light?

Answer

When there are two switches that control one light, this is actually referred to as a three way switch, since there are three terminals at work, which are used to control a circuit from two separate locations. Installing a three-way switch is considered to be highly difficult for someone who is not an expert. There are a number of items required for such a project, some of which include terminal screws, grounding screws, wire strippers, and black tape.
