Good evening, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** will be happy to assist you with your electrical questions. What kind of of light fixtures is the new switch controlling? Is it rated for these types of fixtures? Where are you working with the 3 sets of wires, in the switch box? Or in the fixture?
