3way lighting


I have 2 3way switches with a light in the middle. Switch #1 has feed. Is it possible to add a receptacle after switch #2? Is there a constant hot in that box to tap off of?

You probably don't have a neutral in that box, unless you have 4 wires in it.

I assume you only have 3 wires in the second switch box, and they are all connected to the switch? If this is the case, then unfortunately you will need to find another power source for your outlet.
