Move A Light Switch To Another Wall. For this configuration, you will have to work with the three wires mentioned above. (so the “switch” is effectively always “on”).
Insert a 20a junction box in the feed to the lights, and run a new switch cable from there across and above the ceiling and down and behind the desired wall. I did exactly that some years ago, replacing the light switch with an x10 remotely controllable switch, and hang the remote on the wall at the other end of the room. Strip the last one inch of the new white wire, and place it next to the other white wires.
Run A New Electrical Wire From The Hole Originating From The Old Switchbox.
Building code to connect a dimming switch to a standard outlet. Repeat this process with the green wires. If playback doesn't begin shortly, try.
There's No Three Way Set Up And This Isn't A Switch Loop Either.
From it, there is 3 wire cable that leads to a light which then connects to other lights controlled by their own switches. Strip the last one inch of the new white wire, and place it next to the other white wires. Run your wire to the area you want the new light fixture.
There Will Be 3 Wires Only.
The switch in question is a single pole. The 2 wire source feeds to an adjacent switch for a different light which then feeds this switch with 2 wires. I did exactly that some years ago, replacing the light switch with an x10 remotely controllable switch, and hang the remote on the wall at the other end of the room.
They Switch On Automatically When They Detect People In The Room And Turn Off The Lights When People Leave The Room After A Little Time.
I was easily able to locate the cable in the wall and retrieved it without any damage! In this video we teach you about moving electrical outlet up a wall and how to move a light switch, both the same type of steps needed. You could also put in a new cable, depending on where the existing switch is being fed from.
If Either Cable In The Attic Is Long Enough, Feed It Through The Hole Down.
Putting connector blocks on it to extend it is not a solution. If you need to relocate the switch take the cable completely out of the wall, lift the carpets and floor boards up and route it to exactly where it needs to go vertically above the new switch. This light switch was in a bad location and had to be relocated.
