Stumped on our outdoor lamps
We have 2 outdoor lamps that flank our driveway. But we can't figure out how they work or find the main switch for them. They turn on radomly at night, but not often. I think I've seen them on in the wee hours of the morning about 5 times since we moved in in 2007.
I'd like to replace the lamp posts with something more updated. They are just a plain white and doesn't really go with our Spanish style home. I guess we could paint them black, but they'd still look out of date. The house was built in '77.
From what we were told by the neighbors, this is a contractor's house. The contractor that built our home, built several of the homes around our block. We have a huge electrical panel in our garage and then another panel we haven't opened yet. But I think that has something to do with the telephone. The big panel had never been marked so by trial and error we marked some of the electrical wires that go to certain rooms in our house.
But even if we found the circuit for the outdoor lamps, shouldn't there be a switch somewhere for them?
