Wall switch controlled lighting outlet, yes, but it does not say the switch has to be in the room.
I can read that.
But it does not mean can be in the garage.
what it does mean everyone is familiar as to where it goes. The customary place.

You folks read into things all the time. Why is here so different.

Hey, a pole light is a structure, so is this interpretation that far fetched?

(C) Intention. This Code is not intended as a design specification
or an instruction manual for untrained persons.

Want to bet where the "untrained persons" would put the switch?

I agree. But it is "customarily" 'on the wall'
I aware of the stretch :happyyes::p

Neither the NEC nor UL define a "wall switch". Professionals are aware of what a wall switch is, but lacking a clear cut authoritative definition, we have to accept the resulting malarky.

Seems storage and equipment spaces have received more attention by the CMP.

At least one point of control shall be at the usual point of entry to these spaces.

...JX< Want to bet where the "untrained persons" would put the switch?...
Yes, to inside and to close to the sill framing of the door....

... DA< There is nothing requiring the switch to be a certain distance from the area it controls. Our state inspector totally agrees with me on this.
As was said and who answered, yes!

But

If one upfits commerical space in most cases other codes with cover habitility requirements, and detailing placement for utilizing is required. I'm frankly surprised they didn't suppliment his statement.
