|Option 7. Two Lights Between Two Three-Way Switches: Power Through Switch
These lights between switches have the electrical power coming through a switch. Second switch is an end-wired or end-of-run switch. Both three-wire and two-wire cable with ground are used.
Tip: The traveller wire is connected in the light ceiling boxes, with a length of neutral wire taped black
to indicate a hot wire. The ground wire is pigtailed throughout. Neutral wire bypasses first three-way switch. Use double cable hookup between lights to
handle the multiple wires.
