its has 3 box configuration romez however the wires are inter connected to allow for staircase switch to be turned on &off all thw white are wire tied together along with the nuetrals are seperate but together.


What is 3 box configuration? Is the switch you are replacing a single pole switch(only one switch for the light it controls? If so you will tie the hot feed wire to the black of the new switch,the wire which goes to the light to the blue wire,the white to the neutral and the green to the ground.
