light has a switch at the bottom & the top in that configuration which means
neither switch has a definitive off nor on position. The problem is the boys
bound up & down the stairs and never turn off the light. I was thinking of
installing a 10-minute timer switch in lieu of one of the light switches, but
then it struck me that this won't work at all - if e.g. I put the timer on the
lower switch, if the upper switch gets toggled then activating the timer
downstairs would simply turn the lights *off* for up to 15 minutes. Ack.
Is there any way to wire a timer onto a light wired in this manner and have it
work? Or any other nonpolitical solutions to the problem?
