I have some switched lights in my attic, which is accessible via scuttle in a pantry, which also has lights. Sometimes the attic light gets left on and forgot about. The attic and pantry lights are on the same breaker, served from the same junction box.
The attic switch is not visible when the scuttle door is closed.
I'd like the switch in the attic to turn on both the attic lights and the pantry lights in parallel (not three way) such that if the attic lights are on the pantry lights are also on. The pantry lights should always be on if the attic is on, regardless of the switch position in the pantry.
However, I do not want the opposite to be true. If the attic lights are off, then the pantry switch should work correctly for the pantry lights but the pantry switch should not turn on the attic.
Can I do this without "smart switches?"
My intent is to make it more obvious that the attic lights are on.
