Before connecting several lamps to a switch

Connecting multiple lights to a single switch can be a handy way to improve the comfort and safety of any household electrical circuit. The operation makes it possible to reduce the number of switches while multiplying the sources of lighting. It is in a great classic to create a new atmosphere and a more modern aesthetic.


Before starting work, some safety rules and standards should be observed.


Security rules

First, make sure the power is off for safe handling. Manually turning off the switch is not enough. It is imperative to disconnect the circuit on which you are going to work from the fuse on the electrical panel.


In some cases, especially with older installations, it can be complicated to identify the correct circuit. To avoid any risk cut off the current from the main circuit breaker.


 Meets standards

All domestic electrical installations must comply with the NF C 15 – 100 standard. So be aware that you cannot connect more than 8 light points to the same electrical source. The smallest dwellings, studio type, must be equipped with 2 separate circuits for lighting. In addition, a switch must be positioned between 90 and 130 cm from the ground.
