Wiring Help
Need help with wiring a new switch. I have attached a picture of what is needed. Basically, I have a existing porch light that is giving power to the "dusk-to-dawn" light. I would like the porch light to be controlled by a switch. Can someone do me a diagram on how to connect the switch wires from the existing porch light?
Thanks in advance..

So what do you exactly want to do?

How is the "porch light" controlled now? Is there one switch that controls the "porch light" and the dusk to dawn light and you want to add a second switch?

That is correct K-Buz.

The current porch light is being fed from a fan light that comes from a switch in the wall. Guess I should of put that down also; sorry. I need to put a new switch outside the house so I can turn on and off outside. Make sense?
