    I assumed they would function like gfi breakers where that would not work. So an afci doesn’t care if current is not balanced between hot and neutral.

    Cost of 2 Pole AFCI Breakers

    I can buy a 2 pole 20 plug-in breaker by Siemens for just over $100. Same supplier quoted GE at $470. Anybody know why the big difference?

    Yes it is Ok. Based on how you worded the question you should not try to pull this in without a splice. It can be done but a lot can go wrong if you haven’t done something like this before.

    Yes, these two sensors will be on the same circuit and also on the same service switch. I could not think of a reason it would not work and you guys have confirmed it will. Thanks

    Multiple Motion Sensors

    Is there any reason two motion sensors would not work? I have a floodlight to turn on and want to use two sensors so that if either sensor detects the flood light turns on.

    I’m sure this customer will want everything flush with the asphalt (except the wind sock, control panel and fence perimeter lights) so they can walk all over the lights without tripping.
