Multiway (also known as multi-way, 3-way, 4-way, etc) exists when two or more switches control the same lighting circuit. The Orro Switch can be installed in place of one or all of these multiway switches.
When only one Orro Switch is installed in a multiway setup (also known as Simple Multiway), it will appear and function like a single Switch in the Orro App. The traditional switches can be toggled on and off and the Orro Switch will respond accordingly.
Please Note: In a Simple Multiway configuration, the Orro Switch must be installed in the Load switch location.
When more than one Switch is installed in a multiway setup (also known as Orro Multiway), they will display and function just like a Group in the Orro App. The light levels can be controlled from any of the Orro Switches in the Group setup. All Switches in the Group will have the same lighting settings (Natural Lighting, Preference Learning, Nighttime). Since you may interact with Switches differently, each individual Switch will have its own Auto-On and Auto-Off sensitivity setting.

Examples of Multiway
Your home has multiway switches if you have two or more Switches that control the same lights. This is common in hallways, stairwells, and large rooms with more than one entry point.
