Wiring a Wemo Light Switch on a 3-way switch

I’m installing a Wemo 3way WiFi Switch replacing an existing 3-way switch.

Wiring a Wemo Light Switch
Electrical Question: How do I wire a Wemo Light Switch?

I’m installing a new Wemo 3-way switch and replacing an existing 3-way switch (model WLS0403). The overall circuit has three (3) switches controlling in all, and works as correctly. One of the existing switches (NOT the one being replaced) is a 4-way; and the other (also NOT being replaced) is a 3-way dimmer switch. The 3-way switch being replaced is a standard 3way switch. The new Wemo has more wires (the one on the load line) powers the Wemo device, but in not sure about the appropriate connections for the others. I can send additional documentation as needed, and work very much any assistance you could offer. Thx

This electrical wiring question came from Jim, a Homeowner in Virginia.
