I have two sets 3-way switches that control one light each. Two of the switches are next to one another. I would like to connect them with a 4-way switch so that I can control both lights, from all three locations.
I am not sure which wires I need to connect to the 4-way switch, and which I need to tie together with a wire nut. Each 3-way has a hot, and 2 other wires.
Any help would be appreciated!!

If you are connecting two independent circuits, obviously you will have to remove the hot (power) from one end before connecting the two - or are the two already on the same circuit? Rewiring may be more than just connecting the two via a 4 way switch.
