Also, this won't result in an arc fault. Even if it did, it would do so under the user's testing conditions, before they considered the project complete. Besides what's the result of arc fault? A popped breaker.

Yes, 3 is right. Gang the lines and gang the loads. It's the neutrals that get tricky. Often the motion detector requires neutral too. It sounds like you can make all the connections in the one switch box, that'll make it easier. Word to the wise, test it all after the wire nuts are secure but before you jam in the wires and button up the enclosure.

Check the amperage, too. Does the wall wart have enough?

comment Whats purpose of four pole breaker?
Dan, its a 200 amp. And Kris, yes, its is akin to a 200 amp double double. I guess I called it four pole because of the bar across the switches. you can also see how they are connected at the load side.

comment Electrical engineering background, can I do electrical work on my house
But our question comes from someone who understands whats going on. He admits that he understands electrical systems. He understands what NM is. He understands how to do this. IT WAS PART OF THE QUESTION. This is totally unrelated to the McDonalds Woman. She was out to make a buck. This is a homeowner who wants to upgrade his house in a perfectly reasonable way. In a sound manner. What are you guys afraid of?
