    You're welcome. It's a modification I made of the 4-way diagram in here: http://www.homeseer.com/pdfs/Aeon%20...witch26103.pdf.

    Ok, there is a way to do it with your existing switches. Configure the Aeotec for momentary operation and wire it as follows:

    Every time you throw a switch, the Aetoc will see a quick change and switch the light.

    I bought an Aeotec in-wall micro switch and am attempting to get it to control a light fixture with 3-way switches (2 switches). The wiring looks like this:

    Breaker ---(B/W)---> Switch1 ---(B/W/R)---> Switch2 ---(B/W)---> Light

    This means that AC Power is in one box (Switch1) and the Load is in the other box (Switch2).

    Is it possible to use a single micro controller in this situation? I've read the manuals and googled all over, but can't seem to find a way to understand how I will be able to get power to the light and still use both physical switches with the micro switch.

    Thanks.
    I think you need an extra wire if you only want to use one micro-switch:

    I can't think of a way to do it with the 3 wires you have, but I'll give it some more thought.
