I want to put a series of LED tape lights under the bathroom medicine cabinet.
My bathroom has a series of lights above the medicine cabinet that are controlled by a switch, and I'd like to tie the under-cabinet lights into this circuit.
The thought I had was to tie a small transformer into the line voltage and stuff it into the junction box that holds the light fixture, and run low voltage wires down and behind the medicine cabinet to the LED tape. I only need a watt or two.
- Are there transformers that are small enough to put in junction boxes?
- Is this against the electrical code, and if so, how do most people deal with this?
