Dimmer Switch
Looking into replacing the dimmer switches in my living room. I have a total of 4 recessed flood lights in the room. There are 2 dimmers so each dimmer controls 2 lights. My question is i was reading about Master Dimmer Switch. So if i had a master dimmer to the main panel that i use the most and the accessory dimmer to the other. When i use the master dimmer would that activate all 4 lights and if so if i wanted to operate them separately could i still do that. Hope that makes sense to yall tried my best at explaining. Thanks for all the help its greatly appreciated.

By master dimmer switch, do you mean a three-way dimmer? if so, I onse installed two three-way dimmers to the same light fixture. I then discovered, that they do not work that way, there has to be a standard three-way switch on the circuit
