hi, do the lights in a bedroom fall under the arc fault protection rule or may the lighting be on a seperate circuit? i am thinking the lights should be on the same circuit for that particular location?
My AHJ is only requiring them for recepts. Which works for me since we pull seperate circuits for lights. Our inspectors said try and see how big of a headache they are, we will regroup in a few months and get some feed back to see if they work in the real world.

Just finishing up on a rough in for the first house that I've ever put lighting on the tail end of the receptacle chain, bedrooms only. It will use three AFCI CBs, one for each bedroom. It would have been at least four any other way.
Grumbling about old dogs and new tricks...
