Absolutely! A little more complex.....yes, a little. But if you would like the know how, we would certainly need a lot more info. Such as where in the house is the room located, upstairs, downstairs, basement?I currently have 2 recessed lights and I would like to add 2 more. Is there anyway to control these other 2 independently even if all 4 are getting power from the same source?
its in a hallway. I have two recessed lights now daisy chained together using an attic junction box as the source. I would like to add a double rocker switch rather than have 2 separate switches.
Provided there is enough amps left on the circuit, sounds good. Run the one switchleg cable from the switch up to the first new lamp, then another to the second one. you can twist it onto the hot lead from the source and a pigtail to the second switch. White to white and ground it to the box. Shut the breaker off first for that cct, makes it easier and quicker. :thumbsup:Power is going into the switch from the source then out to the lights. What if I installed 2 more can lights with a separate switch and pigtailed into the existing power source but ran the wires to a new switch would that work you think?
Other way around- amps = watts/volts, but in Canada, you are allowed 12A Max on a 15A circuit for lighting and outlets and we designate 1A per fixture (plenty!). Some states have their own regs, of course.mikem201 said:what is a good way to determine if there are enough amps for a circuit? Don't you divide voltage by watts?
