      Technically, one switch per level is all you need. Entire first floor.... one switch in the living room. Upper level... one switch in the hallway. Basement... one switch by the panel......

        For illumination of stairways over 6 risers.

        The mentioned bedroom lighting outlet - bedroom can be on third floor, needs a wall switch but code doesn't say where. A single switch three floors down is in compliance with code for that bedroom.
