Regarding the typical house flood light fixtures, some with a motion
detector, that you
see at Home Depot and elsewhere. Typically mounted over a deck or a garage
Is it code permissible to mount them directly to the side of a house (wiring
run inside the walls), or
must there be a weather-tite electrical box between fixture base and the
house outside wall ?
There is apparently more than enough room in the fixtures base for the wire
nuts, so I don't see
the need for any intermediate box, but was wondering what the "right way" of
mounting it is.
