Can you draw a picture for me of the wiring that should be done to make this circuit work? It also includes a detailed cost breakdown table and spreadsheet for estimating your own new home construction building costs. As for the comment above: Between the second light and the switch, you can run a 2 wire line just replace the red line with the white and tape the ends of the white with black tape to indicate it's a switched hot.
Here's a quick ascii art diagram of what you need to have: The basement is not finished so I have great access to all ceiling joints and current fixtures. How do you determine which size wire to use?
You need to connect your timer as such. Taking the two wires of the same color one pigtail and one from the light fixtureuse the screw nut piece, placing it on the wire ends and turning it clockwise until it is tightly secured. How do you determine how many lights you can connect to a single circuit?
Draw a diagram, trying to make the lines as straight as possible for easier installation. Step 1 Go to the service panel and turn off power to the circuit you will be working on. I have been reading online about 2 wire nm.
You connect the 2 white wires together, and then connect the other terminal on the switch to the black wire of the cable leaving this junction box towards the first light. Step 12 Place the wires and then the switch into the junction box, screwing them tightly into place. Note that the white wire pig tail may not be necessary if you are directly wiring in a light fixture.
At the last light, just connect the incoming black wire to 1 terminal on the light, and then connect the white wire to the other one. Join them; it only takes a minute: Wrap a piece of black electrical tape around each end of this white wire to indicate that it is a hot wire rather than a neutral wire.
