wiring for outdoor flood lights
Yesterday our electrician came and we talked about adding motion detector floods to a couple places outside our house, near our roof line. I don't know if I understood him exactly but based on where we currently have outlets in the house, and the lack of attic access in certain places, he wants to put the flood fixture in a certain place--backing up to where the outlet is inside the house, if that makes sense.
This place turns out to be pretty exposed, right above the double garage door and almost centered below the window.
This fixture would have two bulbs, one facing toward the street and one toward the house.
I guess my husband and I were thinking of having two fixtures, one on that corner to the right of that window, and one where the two roof lines meet to the left of the window.
Once he drills to the outside, can't the electrician then put in two separate lines, one for each fixture on a corner? Will that look bad too?
The other thing he mentioned is that because this fixture will be close to an outside light, he didn't know if it would work at night at all--and wouldn't be able to tell until we installed it. Can that be right?
