I'm having my GC prepare electrical for lighted medicine cabinet and I'm trying to understand the wiring instructions so I can make sure he does the work right before the walls go up. My confusion is why this lighted medicine cabinet requires BOTH a connection to a GFCI outlet AND a connection to a dimmer.
Is the dimmer switch here the same as any other dimmer switch that I'd use for a normal recessed light, which turns on and off and also controls brightness level? If yes, then why do I need to connect to a GFCI outlet at all?
If it isn't a normal dimmer switch for a recessed light, then what type of dimmer is it and where do i find one?
