Light has black white abdallah ground...see pic...box ...see pic...
Expert:  Mike G. replied 6 months ago.
Is there another switch controlling the light in that room? If yes, you'll need a 3 way, if not a single pole.

Two switches....
Expert:  Mike G. replied 6 months ago.
OK, You'll need a 3 way switch. Connect the red and black, one each to the gold screws and from the black wires with the tape on them a jumper to the black screw.

Odd colors. Usually black, red and white with a green ground. Give me the make and model so I can verify the connections.
