Before designing, locate all the available power sources. Useful power sources can be found: under eaves, in the garage, near the front door, or near the back door.
Plug all lights into GFCI units:
-Consult an electrician to find out about local electrical codes
Most houses have SHARED CIRCUITS - Meaning they have multiple plugs on one breaker.
Dedicated circuits are a lot easier to work with
(Hint: Check labels on breaker box and plug in multiple lights to test breakers to see if they are Dedicated or Shared. It is valuable to know this before installing)
Each breaker has 15- 20 Amps to draw from
Leave a 20% buffer on each breaker
Don't push them to their limits
For safety use 13 amps as your basis
We recommend you use an electrician to analyze circuits
-(Total Watts)/(Volts) = Amps (always round up to whole number)
