comment Retrofitting a remote opener into a garage-gate motor
The motor is at least 20 years old, so I doubt, the manufacturer -- even if they are still in business -- is interested. Yes, I am referring to "Homelink" buttons. Yes, the gate stops on its own when it either fully closes or opens, but one can stop the process at any position by pressing the "Stop" button on the console -- I do not need this functionality from the remote, though.

comment How can I replace a 4-way mechanical switch with occupancy sensor(s)?
I'm trying to replace the existing 3-way/4-way/3-way circuit with a 3-way/3-way (there is no need for the third switch anyway). The product I purchased is labeled "3-way" -- why can't I do, what I want with it? The role of the remaining mechanical switch should be to overwrite the sensor: to allow to turn light on even if the sensor does not sense anyone and off, even if the sensor's timeout has not expired yet.

Sorry, that did not work -- see the Update-section I added to my question...

Why, then, would Lutron (and numerous others) be selling 3-way variants of their sensing switches? What is meant by the manufacturers as the second switch on such a circuit?

comment Can anything interesting be done with Kidde's interconnect wires?
A stupid alarm system is worse. When it "cries wolf" too often, you stop trusting it.
