A 4 way switch must be wired between two 3 ways as shown in the diagrams on this page. A 4 way has five connections: one ground, and 4 circuit terminals divided into two matching pairs. Each pair of terminals should be wired to the traveler wires from one of the 3 way switches. The travelers can be wired to either terminal in a pair, but don’t mix up the pairs or the circuit won’t work properly.
A rheostat, or dimmer, makes it possible to vary the current flowing to a light fixture thereby varying the intensity of the light. The dimmer switch will have stranded wires that must be sliced to the solid cable wiring with a pigtail. A device like this should only be used with an incandescent light fixture and not with a ceiling fan or other motor. See wiring a speed controller for wiring a rheostat to control fan speed.
Here the source is in the middle of the circuit. The dimmer switch is in this box where the hot is connect to the common wire. The common on SW1 is run to the light fixture hot terminal using the white cable wire to the dimmer box where it is spliced with the black cable wire going to the light. The white wire is wrapped with black tape to mark it as hot. The traveler wires are connected in the same way as the above diagrams. The neutral runs directly from the dimmer box to the light fixture.
This wiring shows the light fixture and the electrical source between the switches. Three-wire cable runs throughout and the hot source is splice to the common on SW1. The common on SW2 is spliced through to the hot on the light fixture. The travelers from SW1 are spliced at the fixture outlet box to run to the 4 way switch.
