Hey 51054.


You do not have to chance both, as you can replace either one of the switches, just as long as you replace it with a 3-way dimmer.


The Home Depot does have this 2 pack of Maestro dimmers which brings technology and style to your home with the Lutron Maestro C.L Dimmer kit, the first digital dimmers that are compatible with all of today’s dimmable bulb types - DIMMABLE CFL and LED, halogen, and incandescent. With the Maestro dimmers included, control a light from two locations in a room, getting the benefit of a Maestro from both locations.


These digital dimmers gradually turn lights on and off, allowing your eyes to adjust to the new light level. LEDs display the light level and glow softly in the dark, acting as a locator light so you can easily find the control in the dark. Use the rocker to adjust the light level for any activity or set the preset level to ensure lights always turn on to your desired light level.


Advanced features include delayed fade to off, which allows time to exit a room or to get into bed before the lights turn off. Installing the Maestro C.L is simple and quick, and is perfect for any room in the home. It also coordinates with the entire Maestro family of controls including dimmers, switches, occupancy sensors and more. 2 Coordinating Claro wall plates are included.
