Hey there! Part of my renovations, Ive decided to add new ceiling pot lights in one of the rooms. The only thing is that I don't want to run a new wire all the way from the electrical panel since its on different levels and I'd rather not fish wires with this arrangement. That being said, I am left with only a few options to power the future new lights. There are two electrical boxes nearby. One is for a ceiling light fixture, and has the normal arrangement (white/black/ground). This box is fed from a standard rocker light switch. Then there is another electrical box which is to connect the smoke alarm. Not really sure about using this one since it might be against the fire code, the electrical code, etc.... Last option before running a brand new line from the main panel, is to use a wall outlet which is right below where the pot lights will be. My favorite option would be to use the existing ceiling fixture and run a wire to the new location (short distance in the ceiling, about 4 feet). The only problem is that the existing light switch will control BOTH the existing ceiling fixture AND the new pot lights, which I dont want. The pot lights will be for "accent" only.. I dont necessarily want them on at the same time as the ceiling fixture.. Anybody care to comment or give their recommendations/suggestions?? Many many thanks!!!!
