    I have this French Legrand interrupteur.
    Turn it over and there are three of these push fit buttons on the back.
    Red (L) in, right next it is a white button (1) out, and at the other end a single white button (2) out.
    Just to be safe, for two way switching only, is the out wire to the one light connected to (1) or (2) or doesn’t it matter for two way switching?
    Thanks

    It doesn’t matter.

    True!
    But it would if he was connecting a security light with a PIR.


    I would lie on top of the stairs and smell the cigar smoke of Castro.

    Umm…..if you really are talking two way switching (va et vient) then neither 1 or 2 goes to the light. The following happens at one switch:

    • L = the live supply of the lighting circuit.
    • 1 = one of the two “navettes” bewtween the two switches.
    • 2= the other of the two navettes.

    At the other switch you have:

    • L = the switched live to the light.
    • 1 = one of the two “navettes” bewtween the two switches.
    • 2= the other of the two navettes.

    However, if you really meant to ask about single switching then your original assumption is correct, but do always try to make the off position the one with the top of the switch pressed in/up.
