Would not a decora-style 3-way companion switch, like the WS14A, be much the same thing???  Aren't companion switches just momentary contact switches??


Well..... you might be right Walt2. I've never used the WS14A. Is it a hardwired switch?

It's hardwired in its original application but it's just a momentary contact switch.  See my earlier post in this thread about one way to use it in this application. The companion switch in the older 3 way x10 switch works the same way but it's harder to get by itself. When I needed one I had to buy the whole assembly on EBay just to get the companion switch.

Good Evening,

Just thinking out loud:
I had a similar problem but also had a fan involved.  I purchased three Emerson SW101 switches and the module for the fan.  I installed them in series and they have work flawless since I installed them about 10 months ago.  I also purchased the hand held RF remote for these and it makes a very sound system.  I have dimmable lighting and a multi speed fan. The control from the switches is actually RF and it may be possible just to run a power line to the switch and not connect the ground.  If you do you blow the switch.  Note if you do that the on/off switch will not work.

Good Luck

The EXACT off-the-shelf solution now exists: the EnOcean/Ad Hoc Electronics Batter- Free 3-Way Wireless Light Switch Kit:

But it's not cheap: $260 for a receiver and three decora switches

Very old thread, but I found an answer for the OP. (this works, I've tried the concept using motion sensors).

Hot glue a Credit Card Remote on wall at appropriate location.

Wait for wife to have a nuclear hissy fit and WAF goes in to exponential negative numbers.

Replace credit card remote with a Slim Line Sticky SS13 switch.

WAF resets to zero, neutral.

Grab an adult beverage.
