How can I replace one 3 way switch with one Leviton motion switch?

Hi,

Is it possible to replace one 3 way switch to a motion switch?

My current entrance has a light that can be controlled by 2 regular light switches. I want to change one of them into a motion controlled occupancy switch. I see 4 wires going into the original switch but there's only 3 on the Leviton motion switch. How do I go about this??

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

Many times wires are doubled up on a screw terminal. Your three way switch has three screw terminals. You will most likely find two wires on the dark colored screw.

What model switch do you want to install ?
Some have particular requirements that must be met.
