I'm trying to install WiFi expanders in our mostly brick building. The barrier is a lack of outlets where we need them. There are literally no outlets in locations were the WiFi expanders could also connect to the main WiFi router. The easy solution would be to tap the junction box from the exit sign and place an outlet 12-18 inches to the side. Picture of what I'd like to do attached. Is this allowed? (In New York State if it matters)
Edit to add info:
- The building is a church built in the 1950s.
- The Exit sign source conduit comes from one of the hallway fluorescent light fixtures.
- The Exit sign is an LED, always on light with battery backup in case of AC failure.
- Behind the exit light it's just a standard steel junction box
