I have an existing one-way switch that controls a set of overhead LEDs. I want to control them from that location and another. The new location has a box and power but no travel wire. What do I need to do this without a hub?

There are several solutions. What is actually at the location for the "new" switch? For one, it it a switch box? If so what else it there now?

Install an Insteon switch at both control points, then electronically 'link' them together to work as a virtual 3-way. (If there is no neutral at the original control point, you may need a Micro Module in the box connected to the LEDs as well.)
