    AFCI clarification: Would an inspector ask for AFCI on this circuit? Outside lights are not required to be AFCI protected. The switch in the office is not an outlet, so no AFCI required there, either. What am I missing?
    210.12 (A)
    ... All 120V single phase ... branch circuits supplying outlets or devices installed.... [devices was changed in this code so not just outlest anymore. So that would obviously mean switches. They should just say a device, IMHO. Maybe next code change. An outlet is a device while not all devices are outlets. ]

    Definition:
    Device: A unit of electrical system, other than a conductor, that carries or controls [emphasis mine] electrical energy as its principal function.
