Electrical help needed

When a light can be controlled from two locations like at the top and bottom of stairs can a third switch be used?

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Obviously the answer is yes. Lights, appliances, can be controlled from 2, 3 or more switch locations.

Wiring up 2 each 3 way switches and multiple 4 way switches during new construction is relatively easy and cost effective.

Old work, existing finished structure, the labor and materials costs for the conversion could be extremely high.
I have an excuse. CRS.
