Three way light switch workaround

I am looking for a workaround for a three way switch. I had multiple 823lm switches in my old house and they worked perfectly. Unfortunately, my new house has several outside light switches that are three way. Obviously the 823lm switches are not designed for this. I’m trying to figure out a way to get a WiFi switch to work and connect with myQ. Has anyone found a product that would work?

Depending on how it's wired you could bypass one of the existing switches and then replace the other switch with the 823lm.  You of course loose the ability to use the switch you bypassed.  You also need to make sure the ground is available where you put the 823lm in.

There are WiFi three way switches available from other companies, but I don't know if any three way switches that will work with MYQ.

I wish MYQ had 3 way switches, because I want to control my outside lights w MyQ but I don’t want to bypass one of the existing switches!
