Hi guys,

Having a little problem here and looking for some help.

In the basement stairway there is a light fixture at the top of the stairs controlled by 3-way switches at the top and bottom of the stairs. I want to add a light at the bottom of the stairs as well but I only have access to the switch at the bottom of the stairs. The fixture is all drywalled in so I can't easily run wire from there.

Is there any way to get power to the lower light from the lower switch. As I see it, it doesn't look like it can be done. The black screw is always hot and the other 2 screws alternate hot, so I'm not having any luck.

Any suggestions?
