# Can i wire two switches so that the circuit is closed when one or both switches are thrown?

I basically want my switches to act like a logical OR, so that when one, the other, or both doors are opened, a common light turns on.

• It be easier if it was when the switch closes. Two in parallel would do that. Otherwise an actual OR IC and a relay circuit is required. – Passerby Dec 31 '16 at 5:05
