Under NEC code artcile 210.52 Dwelling Unit Receptacle Outlets
...The receptacles required by this section shall be in addition to any receptacle that is:
(1) Part of a luminaire or appliance, or
(2) Controlled by a wall switch in accordance with 210.70( A) (1), Exception No. 1, or
(3) Located within cabinets or cupboards, or
(4) Located more than 1.7 m (5 ½ ft) above the floor
So my question is if I have a half switched outlet at 60" that is behind a painting, is that counted as part of the required outlets in a dwelling since it is less than 5 1/2 ft?
