    3 lights ran between 2 3-ways, can one of these lights be controlled by a 3rd switch?
    There are 3 lights connected, 2 in one room and the third at the bottom of the stairs. There is a 3-way at the top of the stairs and another in the room with the 2 lights. This guy would like to also be able to switch off just the 3rd light at the bottom of the stairs. I did not dig into this too far but it appears the load, 3 lights and 2 switches are tied into one box. I can't throw in a single-pole before the 3rd light because he would like to turn it on/off from the other 2 locations as well.

    One solution is to use X-10 devices, which will allow a remote switch (transmitter) to be located wherever desired along with a receiver relay at the light desired to be controlled separately.

    Review the information at the link I have provided and get back with any additional questions. There may be comprimises that may be necessary, but this may work out for the situation.

    Hopefully this will work for him :)
