I'm in Maryland, US.
I was hoping to wire from the switch:
I would like my shower heated mirror to come on when I turn on the exhaust fan. Some other models of the exhaust fan recommend not wiring up other devices. But I'm hoping it's possible because A) the same recommendation is not mentioned in this model and B) the heated mirror is low voltage.
Is there any problems with this?
EDIT: now it seems like the main issue will be pluging in the mirror transformer to code. Is it against code to put an access panel to access an outlet either in the ceiling or in a wall? This is how they seem to be doing it in their video:
- wire existing 12/2 romex to exhaust fan (original leg to old exhaust fan) via pig tails and secure in recessed junction box secured to ceiling joist
- connect 12/2 romex from this junction box to outlet which will be b̶e̶h̶i̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶d̶r̶y̶w̶a̶l̶l̶ (see edit above)
- secure plug-in power supply from heated mirror into this outlet
If there are any issues, NEC considerations, or any other relevant information, any information would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
