Convert 3-way switch to 2-way


I have a dock in my backyard with lights on it. Currently the lights are controlled by a 3-way circuit, load at the end of run. One switch is located inside the house, the other is outside near the dock in a weatherproof enclosure.

I want to remove the outside switch and make the inside a simple two way switch. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?


PS: I want to do this because I want to install X10-controlled lighting here, and I can't find a weatherproof switch like the one I have now that's X10 compatable.

Just remove the outside switch and connect one of the switch wires to the hot wire going to the lights. Cap the other switch wire off with a wire nut.
