Install two sconces and one switch

1961 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  kbsparky
I want to install two sconces in my upstairs media room and add a on/off switch to control them.

I can get power from one of the two outlets on the same wall that I want to mount the sconces.

I have access behind this wall - it is a crawl space and is tight but I can get in there. The main thing I want to know is how to hook up the wiring.

I want the outlet that I get power from to always be hot - not switched like the sconces.

If the existing circuit is 14/2 than you can wire the sconces and switch with 14/2. Also the circuit may now be required to be afic protected. It depends on what code cycle your area is using and whether they adopted that section requiring afci protection for extended circuits.
