HO wants an additional outside montion sensor light installed.
The current circuit has 2 outlets (one on the ceiling for the garage door opener and one on the wall [not GFCI, told HO about this requirement] and a dual bulb motion sensor light (has the newer fluorescent energy saver bulbs). This is a 15A circuit.
I want to tie into the current montion sensor light fixture and run conduit approx. 18' to the other side of garage door frame to the new motion sensor light.
The HO has some Romex (NM-B 14-2) that he wants me to run through the conduit.
Is this ok? I have never considered running NM through conduit, looked through the 2002 NEC Handbook, but didn't see anything about this situation.
It sounds like this conduit is going to be on the exterior, if so this would be a wet or damp location. Type NM cable is only to be used in dry locations. Also the conductors in type NM cable are not marked with their type and not approved for individual use in a raceway.
