Do fixed outside devices such as floodlights (high up and out of reach) need RCD protection? Assuming cables are surface mounted (no cables buried in plaster,etc).

Are there any other conditions, such as:

- only one light per unprotected MCB, or multiples allowed?
- any other fused switch allowed to be installed after the CU?
- any labelling or marking required?

It seems that there is better overall protection afforded by actually having the lights working reliably when unattended deterring intruders, rather than catering for someone going up a ladder and forgetting to turn of the power!

Thanks.
