3 Way Smart Switch with Motion Activation

Installing the true 3 Way Smart Switch from Etekcity.  As always we flash the switch with open source firmware, Tasmota for 100% local control.  No soldering required to flash!  After the setup we do a slight modification to add a motion sensor to solve an issue I had in our laundry room.
