I want to change the location of the switch I have, and use my other switch also

Thank you for your question! The MA-AS is only a companion switch for use in a 3 or 4-way with a Lutron Maestro master switch, such as the MA-S8AM. The MA-AS could not be used in a single pole application or with any third party switches or dimmers

This is a companion switch and will not work as a standalone switch. It's designed to be as a multi-location switch paired with at least one digital switch (model: MA-S8AM). You may need that one for your setup.As for amperage, the 8 amp max will work with your 3 amp load.

Answer

When used in conjunction with a Maestro sensor, the MA-AS will send a signal telling the sensor to turn on. The sensor will then perform as if it were turned on with motion. Once it no longer senses motion, it will begin its timeout process until it sees motion again.

I was doing a bathroom remodel and needed to install a 3-way vacancy sensor (Lutron VSP5xx). I used this companion switch for the opposite end because the manual lighted 3-way switch that it replaced didn't work with the vacancy sensor. I spoke to Lutron customer support and they quickly and patiently walked me through the installation process. Mainly because of that, I would recommend Lutron.

The companion switches have worked perfectly. I had some challenges installing them along with the main motion sensor switch. However, Lutron has the best customer service of any company with which I have dealt. I called their number, spoke to someone in tech support who walked me through the process, and I soon had the switches working. I strongly recommend buying anything that is a Lutron product.
