Discuss Low voltage lighting in bathroom in the Lighting Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi all sparks out there,
I am installing some low voltage lights in a recess in my bathroom. The transformer is in the loft, and I want them to operate independently of the pull cord switch, so whilst I appreciate that if these lights were mains operated, a wall switch cannot be used in the bathroom, as they are only 12v, can I use a wall switch to operate these lights.
Any advice on this would be appreciated.
Thanks

Wall switches are permitted in bathrooms, providing they are outside the relavent zones and are suitable for the environment.
Google "Bathroom Zones" and see if you can put a switch where you need it.

Try this


PS, its better to switch the 230v side, other wise you are leaving the "transformer" permanently connected to mains. Not a good idea.

Welcome to the forum mate.
Have you considered using a Quintec Wireless Switch? Then you can pretty much put the switch where you want.
