Florida requires a license, they do have a low voltage license.

Depending on what type of "Low Voltage" wiring you are talking about. If it's Class 2 wiring for instance like for a furnace thermostat, my answer is yes, it requires a licensed electrician to install the wiring. If it's communication wiring then they are exempt from licensure in the State of Michigan per Public Act 217- 338.887 Sec. 7(o). In both cases, the wiring is required to be inspected (hence a permit) per Michigan Electrical Code 80.19.

There is sometimes a snag in issuing a permit to an unlicensed person and this is being addressed at a State level for the '05 Michigan Electrical Code.

Florida does seem to ignore HVAC techs running thermostat wire.

... and garage door techs running "eyes" and switches.

In regard to these licenses for low voltage, am I correct in assuming that an Electrical Contractors license from any of these states would supercede these low voltage licenses?

Galway, if its the state issued EC license then your assumption is correct. If its an ER license, registered electrical contractor which is county or city issued then no, they cannot do alarm work in Florida.

I'm originally from Bergen county also.
