use a pull chain and long string then you can turn the light off no matter what tread you are standing on....

Is this a fire rated stairway?

Public egress?

Typically lights would stay on all the time.

Resi or commercial? If commercial, is the building over 5,000 square feet or under 5,000 square feet? 24 hour operation? Or, closed overnight?

Or, you could use a long pull-chain run through pulleys as necessary.

most commercial building staircases are for fire/emergancy egress, because of this most fixtures are on 24/7 and either have a bodine or bug eyes on the wall incase of power outtage.
