Garage Light Question
I'm adding 2 outdoor lights on either side of my garage door and I'm tying it into my current garage light and door circuit. I have calculated the load and believe it to be sufficient to support the extra 2 lights at 100 watts a piece.

My question is...can I use a combination switch in place of my current single switch that controls my interior garage lights to also control my outdoor garage lights seperately?

Thanks for any help provided.

Yes a combo switch will be fine.

The lights that I have flanking the garage door do not have a switch - rather they have day/night photo sensors and CFL bulbs and are on throughout the night. No switch for somebody to inadvertantly turn off and then my wife arrives in the dark.
