A potential-controlled two-step bidirectional communication protocol between the nanoswitches [Cu(1)](+), 2 and 3 is set up, in which ligand followed by metal-ion oxidation drives two subsequent metal ion translocations (self-sorting) changing the switching state at each switch. The communication is reset to its starting point by a two-electron reduction.
