I purchased a indoor motion switch to install in my basement. The switch I am replacing is a 3-way, but the motion switch has only to leads. Is there any functional and more importantly safe way of wiring the three wires from the old switch to the 2 of the new? Thanks!!

Your best bet is to check and see if the home center stocks the version of that motion switch that is designed for 3-way switches.

The only other option is to eliminate the other switch leg in the circuit and remove the other switch.

If you try to hook it up as is, it will either simply not work, or self destruct.
