I'd like to add an outlet near a 3-way-switch as it's the closest potential source.
My issue is that there is no constant load at this location; when I toggle the other switch the red and black wires at this switch alternate being "hot" (I tested using an a non contact voltage tester).
This is how my switch is currently wired:
|------| Black --------|Switch| Red --------|------| |-- White | | Ground | | | | | | | | | Black | |-----X-------Ground=====> to light fixture? |------------X-------White
Do I have a reasonable way of adding an 'always on' outlet 3 feet away from this switch without sacrificing the 3-way functionality?
Leviton sells this device which would appear to do what I want except the outlet is located on the switch itself. Do any of the terminals on this switch provide a hot/neutral sources that I can run a 14/2 wire from?
** Update **
I replaced the two switches with a Leviton WiFi Smart Switch and (3-way) Remote. This setup gives me a constant hot at the location I wanted and the outlet works without issue.
