Can SLS series line voltage wall switches be used as a 3way (multi-location) switch?

Issue:
Can SLS series line voltage wall switches be used as a 3way  (multi-location) switch?  The intent is to use install multiple switches in a room or building to control the same load.

Product Line;
Occupancy Sensors, Wall Switches

Environment:
Commericial or Residential Wall Switch Occupancy Sensor wiring

Cause:
Seeking product information and installation instructions

Resolution:
There are 2 generations of wall swiches to which this question may apply.  The solution is different among the 2 generations of switches.  

First Generation of Line Voltage Occupancy Sensor Wall Switches was released in 2009 and sold through 2014
The part numbers include:  
SLSPWS1277Ax, SLSPWS120Vx, SLSPWS1277Ux, SLSPWD1277Ux, SLSUWS1277Ux, SLSUWD1277Ux, SLSPWS1277Ux, SLSPWD1277Ux, SLSPWS1277Mx

For these first generation wall switch occupances sensors, simply wire the red outputs of several switches in parallel to the load.  Do not exceed more than 3 switches on a single circuit.  


The Second Generation of Line Voltage Occupancy Sensor Wall Switches was released in 2014.  This familiy of switches includes a special multi-location switch device which must be used to setup a 3 way circuit.   Use only the following multi-location devices for a multi-location applications.  
SLSPWS3277C, SLSPWS3277N, SLSPWS3277C, SLSPWS3277N, SLSUWS3277, SLSUWS3277N
Follow the wiring diagrams shown in the instruction bulletins for these devices.
